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

Hello, recently I purchased an Intex aqua power plus mobile, 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 the anti-theft password which I don't know. So please guide me on how to unlock the system. Mobile:- Intex aqua power plus (Lollipop)

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 or check out our newly updated Bypass Privacy Protection Password on Android

How can I unlock my phone when I forgot my privacy protection password?

I activated the mobile anti-theft setting on my new G Touch S72 made in China. I rebooted my phone last time without changing my SIM Card, and this different screen apart from my normal unlock screen appeared asking for the Privacy Protection Password. I entered my password, but it said 'wrong pin'. I did a hard reset, but it still appears. Please, what do I do again; help me out.

I am running Swipe Elite, how to remove its privacy protection password?

That password was not applied by me. It comes by default in my mobile; please help. There is not a single service center for it.

I bought a new SIM and placed it in my phone. When I turned it on, it says, please put your privacy protection password.


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. Check out our newly updated guide Bypass Privacy Protection Password on Android

After download and using the miracle box, my Samsung Galaxy A8 keep showing privacy protection password. I bought it from a shot but the documents where not in the carton so I do not know if the had use it before but it look brand new. I did switch on my airplane mode then when I switch on it started showing privacy protection password. Airplane mode: my case has to do with airplane mode on then off and my Samsung Galaxy A8 start showing privacy protection password. I have tried: Download miracle box and use it . try the codes 0000 1234, 1234567, 000000. I think it was caused by: Airplane mode changes might had provoked the network issue . like I suspect a different SIM from a different network was first inserted into the phone before I inserted my own from another network and so switching on and off the airplane mode cause some network problem.
