An Apple restrictions passcode is an extra password that's required, along with the Apple ID password, in order to reset the passcode for your Apple device.

When you first set up your Apple device, you can choose an Apple ID passcode, restrictions passcode, or a lock screen passcode. You can always change the passcode for your device at any time, or you can use the same passcode for all of your devices.

If you forget your restrictions passcode, or if you want to change it to a different number or to a passcode you don't use, you can reset it by following these steps. See if you can lock yourself out of your device. If you haven't changed your restrictions passcode, follow these steps to make sure that you can't lock yourself out of your device. Log in to iTunes.
