How do I unlock my infinix hot note x551 phone?

My phone is asking for a privacy password for the phone that I can't remember, this happened after I inserted a different SIM card. How do I unlock my phone? Can the numbers I used to refer to in case of theft of my phone help retrieve the password?. I have tried: I tried using different passwords, I could remember to have ever used on my phone before, all in vain.I also tried switching it on in safe mode but it showed no action. I think it was caused by: I inserted a new SIM card that must have been possibly be detected by the system

Answer: Enter your mobile number and you will gain access

This did trigger the SIM lock protection when you swapped on the SIM. The easiest way to fix this is to put the old SIM back in the phone and disable the SIM lock within security settings. The SIM card will still need to be active. If you can't use the old SIM, you will have to install new ROM on the device.

How can I unlock my Infinix x551 mobile?

My Infinix x551 mobile is blocked and it requires privacy protection code. How can I unlock it?. I have tried: Every code I remember. I think it was caused by: Anti theft code

The code would be a 6 digit one. Try your birthday including the year, for example, 632017. If you never set one up then use a combination of 6 digits like 123456. Call your cell phone carrier and request if they have a default code to use, especially if this triggered on it's own without you swapping a SIM card.
