How to remove Karbonn a40+ Privacy lock?

I have a Karbonn smart a40+ it shows privacy lock, how to remove?. I hard reset it, but that didn't work!!!

Did you try '1122' or any other codes such as 0000, 111222, 1234, 123456? With the Karbonn a40 Plus, if you can't bypass using your Google Account and the codes do not work, you will have to flash new firmware on the device to bypass the Privacy Lock. Unfortunately, you are not alone in this issue with your specific device. Other users had the same issue and the only solution is flashing new firmware. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, it is best to take it to a repair shop that can. Flashing your phone can brick it which means it will be unusable.

How can I remove privacy protection lock on my Samsung S7?

Asking for a privacy protection lock

If you never set up an anti-theft password, try 123456. This is the default code for most devices. What is happening is the anti-theft got triggered. This usually occurs when swapping out a SIM card and not turning anti-theft off before you do it.

You will have to flash new firmware onto the device since you set up a pin but forgot it. The default codes will not. Your password would have been a 6 digit code so start using familiar numbers so that perhaps you will get it right and be able to use your phone without flashing on new firmware.
