Screen time passcode iOS 12 ?

Screen
Time was enabled by default in iOS 12 and lots of iPhone X/8/7/6 users after
upgrade to iOS 12 are not able to remember default screen passcode. But it is
sure that they never set any Screen Time passcode during installation of iOS 12
but still they are popped up with 4 digit Screen time passcode.
iOS 12 screen time passcode
The
screen time passcode is generally faced if you have upgrade the iPhone from iOS
11 to iOS 12 and restored the database backup in your iPhone and once the
iPhone is up with iOS we you will be asked for screen time passcode. But most
of the user don’t know what is the
passcode for screen time.
Please
note that the locks screen passcode is different than the screen passcode as
the lock screen passcode is 6 digit and this one is 4 digits only.
Hopefully
apple is aware of this issue, one user on apple forum said that:
Apparently, Apple is getting a lot of tech support requests about
this issue–they called me and asked a bunch of questions. Maybe they will
change the iOS 12 installer in the next update, so people who haven’t upgraded
yet won’t have to deal with this problem

have also forgot Screen time passcode please read the below to understand and
reset the default screen time passcode.
