With Enigma Recovery software, you can recover from Encrypted backups. Using an Encrypted iTunes backup file can sometimes help you recover more data, particularly if you are trying to recover Calls, Safari Internet History and your Screen Time Restrictions Passcode.
To create an Encrypted backup follow the steps below:
Create an Encrypted backup using iTunes
1. Open iTunes, making sure that you have the latest version. If you do not have iTunes installed on your computer, you can download it here.
2. Connect your device to your computer using a USB cable. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in the upper-left corner of the iTunes window.
3. On the Device Summary screen, navigate to the Backups section, and select 'Encrypt [device] backup', then click 'Back Up Now' - please note that clicking this button will overwrite and encrypt any of your previous device backups.
4. You will be asked to create a password for your backup file. Make sure that you choose a password that you can remember, or write it down and store it safely. Without this password, you won't be able to use your iTunes backups in the future.
Once you have set your password and confirmed it, iTunes will start the process of creating an encrypted backup of your device.
Creating an Encrypted Backup using Finder in Mac
If you are using macOS Catalina 10.15 or later, you will need to use Finder to create an Encrypted backup:
1. Open Finder and connect your device to your Mac computer
2. Locate your device on the computer
3. In the 'General' tab, select 'Encrypt local backup' under the backups section - make sure you choose a password that you'll remember!
