Reset Privacy Protection Password (Guide)

Share it:

The Anti-theft protection in android was an excellent feature introduced from android lollipop onwards. Most of the AOSP Roms are having this feature.

But it really becomes the nightmare if we forget the pin.

In my case, I added anti theft password in the past and changed my sim card. Later, when I switched on my device, I got stuck at this lock screen.  I forgot the pin.

you might have done something similar. That's why you are watching this!

A simple factory reset won't fix this issue. because the pin is written in the system partition.

So Its the time to fix this.


  • Stock Firmware (for your specific device)
           I'm using Micromax Unite 2 in this tutorial
  • SP Flash tools
          (drivers must be installed properly)

  • USB Cable
  • The locked device


Before you proceed, keep in mind that this process will erase your system partition. Which results in 'invalid imei' problem.

You can simply restore your imei if you already have a backup with you. Otherwise, You need to write IMEI to the system manually.

  1. I have experienced this problem in my phone when I changed my sim cards. This happens when u have activated anti theft feature in your phone.
    and Guys even if u reset or hard rest your phone a million times you cant bypass it. Online solutions suggests flashing your phone which will delete all your memory from phone storage. There are ways to retain it but Why the hectic process!!!
    So here is the simple way
    1. while activating the ANTI-THEFT feature you would have registered a back up number. when u have forgotten your anti-theft password just type these codes from that number the password will be sent to that number.
    as easy as that!!!
    Here are the codes
