How to unlock privacy protection for Infinix Android phone?

I removed the SIM from my new Infinix Android phone and after reinserting the SIM was asked to enter the privacy protection password which I have no idea about. I have tried: Tried using 0000, 000000, 1234, 123456 and all failed. I think it was caused by: Removing the SIM from the phone

Insert the old SIM and disable the SIM lock under your Security Settings. You will need to have an active SIM to do this. Your other option is to try AVG's Remote Unlock for SIM cards assuming that AVG held the security account on your phone. They have a program that can remotely unlock the SIM.

SIM locks are a new feature with phones to prevent anti-theft. If you still can't unlock the new SIM then you will need to contact your cell phone provider for assistance in setting up the new SIM.

The Privacy Protection password is 6 digits long. Try to recall if you ever set one up. If you did not then try 000000, 123456, a combination of the last 4 digits of your phone number in addition to 00 or 12, and birthdates. If you find that none of these work, then put your previous SIM card in your phone and under Security, disable the SIM lock. The previous SIM will still need to be activated for this to work.

There is no way to recover Security passwords on a device. This is so that a thief can't take your phone and swap out the SIM for a new one. Try the AVG link above to see if AVG handled the security on your device. Many phones used AVG for their security so chances are high yours is protected by AVG as well. Follow the suggestions in above answers on this page if you still can't unlock the SIM.

How can I unlock my ZTE switch x2 phone?

My phone is blocked, it needs me to enter privacy protection password

This password would have been 6 characters long when you originally set up the phone. You also should have been prompted to put in two or more emergency contact numbers. Put the old SIM in your phone and have one of those contacts text your phone with #‎mima#. If you are unsure of who this may have been then have several people close to you text you with the code. You will receive a text assuming that you had put in an emergency contact that will have a new privacy protection password for you.

Sir! I put a privacy protection lock to my phone but I forgot it, can you help me to unlock it?

I forgot my privacy protection lock for my mobile Panasonic p55 novo, when I removed my SIM that lock has been placed

It will be 6 to 8 digits. You can try using the AVG link above to see if that unlocks your device or keep putting in combinations of 6 to 8 digits. Start with ATM pincodes and your birthday or age as options to try first. You should have chosen and number sequence that was familiar to you. Even try your locker combination from highschool for instance. Since you set it up, you should be able to eventually get the correct one.

I forget my cm security passcode so now I can't open my phone

First, login to your Google Account on the PC and try to uninstall it from Google Play. Because it is set up as a device administrator on your phone, you may have to hard reset the device to get rid of it if Google Play can't uninstall it. In the future, only use a Security app that has a bypass like the one pre-installed on your phone which gives you the option of using your Google Account if you can't unlock your device.

Contact CleanMaster and let them know you are locked out of your phone. It might take 72 hours or more for a response though while a hard reset will give you access right away. The downfall to that is you will lose all saved data, contacts and images that you did not back up previously.
