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.

If you try combinations like 0000 or 1234 and that does not unlock your phone, you'll have to hard reset the and root the device to reflash the firmware. You also may want to try contacting the cell service provider to get the generic code they assign to their SIM cards for setting up the device.

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

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

I have a Lenovo A319 made in China, and I have privacy protection password issue?

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.

Try Forgot Password and sign in with the Google account. If you do not know your Google account details that are assigned to the device, you will have to root the device and reflash the Firmware.

My O+ Evo 4G phone has an anti-theft feature. I decided to turn it on.
