I get notification that "You have to trust the PC in order to perform the scanning of data." But there is no pop up screen to trust it. Where do I find it or bypass this? I think it doesn't pop up because the device requires a passcode to restart and I forgot the passcode. Any suggestions?

Hi Tiffany, the device need to be activated so the program can scan it. If the phone is deactivated and the computer or itunes cannot recognize it, our product will not be able to scan it.

Does the device have to still be activated in order for the scan to work?

Hi, for iPhone 5s, the device does not need to go to DFU mode like iPhone 4 does. The program can scan the 5S directly in normal mode. But it only recover text data from the device. For media files, you can try to use the program to scan the itunes or icloud backup file, if you have backed up the phone before.
