A restriction passcode is usually set by parents on their children's iPhones to make sure they cannot do everything on their phone. Mostly, the passcode restricts children from performing certain activities on their phones. This ensures they do not get in trouble unknowingly and that they can only use the feature that is for them.

If it has been long since you set a restriction passcode on your child's iPhone and you have forgotten it, well, then you will not be able to reset right from the iPhone itself. To retrieve that, you are going to need to use a third-party app that helps with retrieving restriction passcodes for iPhones.
