How to solve the privacy protection password to unlock when reboot?

Hello, I have ST90 Lenovo smartphone with Octa core. I inserted a new 32GB SD card in it and the phone accepted the SD card. Few days later the SD card disappeared from the storage at the setting display. Later on when I rebooted the phone I got the 'please enter the privacy protection password to unlock'. When I enter the privacy pin code I can unlock the phone but in less than a minute the phone asks again for the privacy password to unlock. I have no time to change anything in the settings. From Google account tried to erase my pin code but it did not solve the problem. What is going on here? How to solve this problem? I am now using the same SIM card and the SD card in my old smartphone and have no problem. I also use the same privacy pin code. I followed the steps mentioned here but it did not fix the problem. I have tried: Google account, reset did not work, holding the voice and power and home button at the same time, but then I get Chinese symbols which I do not understand. Then I tried rebooting without battery, SIM card, and SD card, did not help. The phone accepts the SIM card and the pin code of SIM card, but then asks after 10 seconds for the privacy password which I do not have. Never used. Never installed a privacy password except the privacy pin code that I know. I think it was caused by: No idea at all. Chinese smartphone that works for one year.

How to unlock a privacy protection password on mobile device?

I set an anti theft password on my mobile and I forgot it, so I took out my SIM card and inserted other SIM card different from my network, mine is Vodacom and the one I inserted is MTN . Afterwards I opened WiFi and hotspot then it started to say I should enter my privacy protection password .I entered the one I remembered then it said the one I have entered is wrong I should enter the correct one .Over and over again. I saw similar situations from YouTube I did exactly what they said I must do referring to the video clip. It did not solve my problem I then flashed my mobile, even that did not help. I have tried: I tried to solve it the way on YouTube video clip said I must and I flashed my mobile. I think it was caused by: I inserted other SIM card in my mobile and I tried to connect to WiFi and hotspot
