Is it possible to format the phone together with the mobile anti-theft password?

I lost my phone. I have so many important details in my phone.

If you lost your smartphone, then you can log on to Android Device Manager and attempt to click "Erase Data", which will erase all of the data on the smartphone. After that, log off and log back on. Your device should not be shown at all. If it is not shown, then it is formatted. Anti-theft password, if enabled by the operating system and model of the smartphone, will be shown automatically on the screen of that smartphone. If you are trying to format or flash someone's smartphone that has the anti-theft Google lock, then the Google lock will remain even after formatting or flashing.

Remove your SIM card. Once you do, a code will be sent to one of your Emergency Contact that you set up on the phone when you arranged the privacy protection password. The trick will be figuring out who you set up if you have numerous contacts. They will need to respond to the message about phone possibly being stolen with #opluspin#. Your contact will then get a text with the code.

You will have to hard reset the device if you are not referring to the regular lockscreen password that allows Google as an option. Once you have hard reset your phone, you will then have to install new firmware on the phone to bypass the Privacy Protection. This can be tricky if your USB is locked. At that point, it would be best to bring it to one of your cellphone provider's locations to request assistance.

Disabling mobile anti theft, do I need to have a recovery code to disable?

Hi Daniel, I forgot the password I entered months ago. I want to disable the mobile anti theft settings on my phone. What do I need to do? Do I need to have a recovery code just to turn this off? If I will do a factory reset, will that help? . Hope you can help me. thanks

Please how can I get passed anti-theft application password on my phone?

I am using Mi-Tribe A500. I activated the protection myself, but I have forgotten the password. I removed my SIM and put it back into the phone, but now it requires the password before I can have access to my phone. My phone is A500. I need a solution to unlock my phone. I have tried: I have tried to recover to factory settings. It only affected my pattern password, but does not provide a solution to the anti-theft lock. I think it was caused by: I changed my SIM and replaced with another SIM. I already returned the initial SIM but the problem still continue
