    If you're talking about the password to access an encrypted backup, there's unfortunately no way to recover the password. If you can't remember the password, the backup cannot be used to set up your iPhone, neither can the data in the backup be recovered.

    If you've ever backed up to iCloud, you can restore you're phone and set it up from that backup; otherwise you'll have to set it up as a new iPhone. Your previously purchased iTunes and App Store content can be re-downloaded for free, but any saved app data and game progress will be lost.

    Try you best to think up the possible password, that's the only option left

    Not making any guarantees, because I haven't tried this software myself. It is a brute force tool which will attempt every combination of possible characters until it finds the right one. If your password is long or complex, it could take a very long time, just FYI.

    The free version has limited features. To get the complete password, you'll need the paid version.

    I heard the app before. Bad reviews and good reviews combined. Maybe it's good for cracking the simple keywords.
