The Anti-Theft Privacy Protection pins require you to flash your ROM because even hard reset does not bypass the pin prompt. I have forgotten my privacy protection password, Micromax canvas 5? is a QNA on VisiHow that has the answer on how to flash ROM. Since you did not specify which type of phone you have, you can search for the firmware downloads that you will need. Samprix.com has most phone firmware to download. You also will have to update your IMEI. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, please use a cellular repair shop.
