The "SCREEN LOCK”Is a protection found on almost all modern mobile phones and tablets and allows you to keep your private data safe from prying eyes. Thanks to the screen lock, if someone takes your mobile phone (without your permission) they will not be able to access the features of the device and will not be able to view anything because it is essential to enter the code (password) or the correct sequence in order to unlock the screen and enter the device. The iPhone and iPad also have this protection and to activate it just log in to SETTINGS -> FACE ID AND CODE and from here activate the screen lock and choose a protection code / password.
Here, however, we want to focus on another question, namely how to Remove iPhone / iPad Screen Lock. If you know and remember the code, this operation is really trivial to do ... if you do not remember the entered code, you have to find alternative solutions and also rely on third-party software.
