Welcome to the forums. Basically, you can't. You can try the Android Device Manager website with a PC but you will still need the proper credentials to log in there.

Welcome to Android Central! Did you read through this thread already? Basically, you can't recover your Private Mode password. That would make it a poor security measure. You either have to try your best to remember it (using hypnosis, if necessary), or give up and do a factory reset, which will allow you to create a new Private Mode password (but which also means you'll lose that data).
