✔ Best Answer
Did you call Apple support? P.S the default password for iTunes backup is 1234.

If the problem still exists, then you have to brute force the password and there is no help from Apple support for this as I tried to contact them before. You can follow this tutorial to recover the itunes backup password: http://www.uukeys.com/forgot-itunes...

As I already asked, are you trying to restore the backup to your phone? Or to a new phone? Have you tried your phone unlock code?

Open the Keychain access and it's possible that your password is stored there:

Or use the third-party softwares iTunesKey, elcomsoft, etc.
