Microsoft has created a Tutorial on what do do when this happens on the Lumia 535. Basically, it is that you need to hard reset your device and start from the beginning. They have included how to backup your device before the hard reset. The Lumia 535 has this issue with their screens, unfortunately.

Hi, my Lumia 535 double tab on lock screen, it's not working. Can you fix it asap?

I've already tapped on the button double tap screen but it's still not working, even I've restarted my phone many times. Please help bro...

Backup and hard reset your phone. You can try to remove the battery for a soft reset, although that will not completely keep the issue from happening again.

Authentication code for Microsoft Lumia 535?

How to get authentication code to unlock Microsoft Lumia 535

If you are referring to unlocking the SIM from your cellular carrier, they will have to provide the code. You could try one of the online code providers but use at your own risk.

If you are referring to the fact that you forgot your pin code for the lock screen, just hard reset the device. Hold down all the buttons except for Power for 10 seconds. Then while still holding the buttons, now also hold down the Power button.
