Your iPhone contains a lot of important personal information that you probably don’t want strangers or thieves to find.
One of the ways that you can add some security to your iPhone is with a passcode. When you set a passcode you lock certain features behind that passcode, and also require it to unlock the iPhone if Touch ID or Face ID aren’t working.
But you might not like entering that passcode all the time, and may think that Touch ID or Face ID is enough security.
You can follow the steps in the guide below to turn off the passcode on your iPhone 6.
How to Remove the Passcode from an iPhone 6
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone using the iOS 13.6.1 operating system.
Note that these steps will work for most iPhone models in most versions of iOS, but iPhones that have Face ID will have a menu that says Face ID & Passcode instead of Touch ID & Passcode.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Scroll down and choose the Touch ID & Passcode option (Face ID & Passcode if using an iPhone with Face ID.)
Step 3: Enter the current passcode.
Step 4: Touch the Turn Passcode Off button.
Step 5: Tap the Turn Off button to confirm. Note that this is going to do some things like remove Apple Pay and car keys from your wallet.
Note that there is a setting on your iPhone that can cause it to erase all data if the passcode is entered incorrectly 10 times. If you are trying to guess the passcode this is a good thing to be aware of it you don’t want to lose your data.
