How to fix some mysterious problems.

My little child deleted a couple important contacts and text messages on my iPhone 6S, bought a few days ago. I did back up the phone with iTunes. The bad thing is that i forgot the backup password so I can't recover the items from iTunes backup. Is there anyway i can break the password?

I have posted a few place for the same question but there is no valid until now. Hope I could find some good luck in here.

If you forgot your password for itunes encrypted backup the only thing you can do is to delete the encrypted backup Find and manage your iTunes backups - Apple Support. After that just go on your iphone to settings - general - reset - reset all settings. When you complete this steps you should be able to create new backup without encrypting or set up new password for encryption that you will know.

Other way is that try professional iTunes backup password recovery tool like iSeePassword iTunes backup password recovery. If you forgot iTunes backup password, it maybe work with you.
