I also faced the problem forgot iTunes backup password for iPhone 6. But fortunately I find forgotten iTunes backup password out at last with a third-party iTunes backup password recovery tool, iSunshare iTunes Password Genius. It is recommended by my best friend. So I tried it, and unbelievably it really helped me and fast recovered iTunes backup password.
In the process, I find the as long as you find the password to open file Manifest.plist, you can restore your iPhone from iTunes backup successfully. Therefore, no matter your iTunes backup is saved on Mac or Windows computer, you can copy the Manifest.plist to Windows computer, and run iTunes Password Genius to recover iTunes backup forgotten password in few seconds.
Nothing needed to be worried about, especially password recovery efficiency and backup safety.
Just get the iTunes backup password recovery tool and learn how to use it. http://www.isunshare.com/itunes-password...
Note: Besides iTunes backup, actually you also could restore your iPhone 6S from iCloud backup. Or restore iPhone data with iOS Data Genius, which also provides two ways to restore data, iOS devices and iTunes backup. If you choose iTunes backup, you would also need iTunes backup password recovered with iTunes Password Genius.
You can’t restore an encrypted backup without its password. With iOS 11 or later, you can make a new encrypted backup of your device by resetting the password. Here’s what to do:
On your iOS device, go to Settings > General > Reset.
Tap Reset All Settings and enter your iOS passcode.
Follow the steps to reset your settings. This won't affect your user data or passwords, but it will reset settings like display brightness, Home screen layout, and wallpaper. It also removes your encrypted backup password.
Connect your device to iTunes again and create a new encrypted backup.
You won't be able to use previous encrypted backups, but you can back up your current data using iTunes and setting a new backup password.
If you have a device with iOS 10 or earlier, you can't reset the password. In this case, try the following:
If someone else set up your device, ask them for the password.
Use an iCloud backup instead of iTunes. If you don't have an iCloud backup, you can make one.
Try using an older iTunes backup.

A few things that helped me:
- Make sure the iOS on the phone you are restore TO is NOT older than the iOS you backed up from. This causes a long-winded "backup is corrupt or incompatible" error message that looks A LOT like the "wrong password" error message.
- Use Keychain Access app on your computer to look for iphone backup password.
- And do that on the FIRST computer you ever backed up your phone to, maybe not your current one.
- In Itunes, Preferences, Devices you can see a list of backups. Pad lock = encrypted.

Well I did follow same thing Son Tran. I did reset all settings and took the backup as I did not remember my iPhone back up password. That lend me in another problem which seems to be IOS bug where data should not be encrypted but still it is and that too without password.
I have contacted Decipher Tools Support team suggests that iOS backup bug which is turning off the encryption with a settings reset (a recent feature added in the middle of iOS 11) ends up creating an encrypted backup, but without the encryption keys. (More specifically, it refreshes some of the files updating the lack of encryption, but doesn't rewrite the older files without encryption as it should.)
So any suggestion to get back the data?
