  3. On that menu, tap the “Turn Passcode Off” and click “Turn Off”
  4. You will be prompted to enter the current password.
  5. Your Apple Watch should now have the password disabled.

Method 2: iPhone’s Watch App

  1. Open the Watch app on a connected iPhone device.
  2. Scroll down and open the Password Settings
  3. Tap “Turn Passcode Off”
  4. A popup alert will appear to confirm that you want to remove the password. Tap “Turn Off Passcode Lock” to confirm.
  5. Enter the current passcode.
  6. Your Apple Watch should now have the passcode disabled.
