First, put the old SIM back in the phone and disable all locks. The old SIM may allow you to do this so that you can transfer the new SIM. Second, you can reset your anti-theft password through AVG For Android. They list several ways including AVG Mobilation and resetting your password.

How do I remove the privacy protection password of my infinix hot note as I have forgotten it?

I switched off my infinix hot note phone to insert the second SIM card in the second SIM slot. On switching it on, after inserting the second SIM, it asked for the first SIM lock which I entered, and then it asked for the privacy protection password. Unfortunately, I had forgotten the password. Up to now, I have tried to format the device, but it is still demanding the password. Kindly help.. I have tried: Have tried guessing the password, have tried to format the device too. I think it was caused by: Simply forgot the password sir, because the device is only two weeks old

You have to work with AVG Security to regain your password or use the former SIM to turn off the SIM lock before you put in the second one.

It was caused by switching your SIM card. You can put the old one in and disable the SIM lock within settings or use the AVG mobilation link posted in the top answer to unlock your SIM card.

I just put a second SIM to my phone and on reboot I got this message: "Please enter the Privacy Protection Password to unlock". I recall I have set such a password in settings in Anti-Theft option, but I set a Screen Pattern as a password and its asking for a Pin code which I do not remember doing it neither the password itself! My phone is locked and I cannot use it anymore?

The SIM password is a code and not a pattern. Try the last 4 digits of your phone number. If that does not work then insert the old SIM card in and disable all anti-theft security measures including SIM lock. You can use the steps in the top answer if your phone still will require a password. AVG has created some solutions to the SIM lock.

The only way to unlock is to put your old SIM card in your phone to disable any anti-theft locks.
