When iPhone or iPad user forgot their screen lock passcode, the MDM Administrator can still remotely unlock the device using MDM. Using Codeproof Cloud Console, the administrator can remotely remove iPhone's pass code and unlock it. The Codeproof removes previously used passcode from the device. In order this to work, the device must have Codeproof MDM has been setup previously.
