"What to do if i forgot the passcode to my iPhone 5c?"

Putting four-digit passcode on your iPhone is really an effective method to keep prying eyes away from your device and personal data. But what if you outsmart yourself and find you forgot iPhone passcode? And your iPhone has been disabled like below after too many attempts.

Once if you forget your iPhone 6 Plus/6/5S/5C/5/4S password, you will lose the access to your iPhone and not be able to reset your password by using the iPhone alone. Thus you need to recover your iPhone passcode by connecting the iPhone to the computer that you have been using to sync and back up your iPhone. Then put your iPhone into recovery mode to restore the iPhone and clear the passcode. This technique will erase all the content on your device – including the passcode – and replaces it with a backup of your choosing.

However, if you encrypted your iPhone backup and forgot the backup password, then you must turn to iTunes Backup Password Recovery to get back the access to iPhone's backup.
