How to unlock privacy protection password (anti-theft)?

Hello, recently I purchased a mobile intex aqua power plus and my family member kept some password for anti theft mobile. Now as per the banker requirement I changed my SIM slot from one to another, but it is not allowing me to insert, still asking for anti theft password which I don't know. So please guide me how to unlock the system.

Try tapping 0000 or 1234 or 000000 or 123456 when it asks for the privacy password. If that fails you will need to hard reset your device following the steps in the VisiHow article on this page.

In this instance, you can remove your phone's battery and SIM card and then turn the phone back on to see if that changes anything. If not, your option is to enter your password, and tap enter. If that does not work try entering four zeros 0000 as your password. Your last resort would be to reboot the phone and reset your password.

Hi, huge problem, I changed my SIM to a different SIM provider and when I opened my phone again I got the message enter your privacy protection password to unlock. I remember turning on anti theft settings when I opened my mobile for the first time but have no idea what the password was. Rebooting or restarting is not helping at all.

If one was never set initially with the older SIM, try 0000 or 1234 with the new SIM. You may have to try more than one combination such as six 0's instead of 4.
