5 Ways To Remove Privacy Protection Password On Android Phones

SHARE:

Today i am going to show you different ways to remove a security feature known as privacy protection password on any android phones. It is an Inbuilt security anti-theft feature that came with most of the android phones running OS 4.3- 6.0 e,g Tecno, Infinix, samsung, Huawei e.t.c.

   Today i am going to show you different ways to remove a security feature known as privacy protection password on any android phone. The method and solutions listed and described in this post have been tested by me, you can keep trying them one after another until you find a method that will help you unlock your device.

Apart from the Emergency contact solution and inserting original SIM card, there is no any other way currently available to bypass/remove the privacy protection password without connecting it to a computer. .

   Here are few methods to try before settling for the last option of calling up an engineer or rushing down to an expert to get it done for you. Simply follow the simple solutions below to bypass the password from the comfort of your home or office. You can easily remove the privacy password of your Tecno and/or MTK device by using handy software like SP Flash Tool, Miracle Box or the emergency contact solution method.

What is Privacy Unlock Password?

Answer: It is an Inbuilt security anti-theft  feature that came with most of the android phones running OS 4.3- 6.0 e,g Tecno, Infinix, samsung, Huawei e.t.c. Once enabled it will prevent any unauthorized user from accessing your phone until the required setup password has been entered.

Why is my phone asking me to enter a privacy protection password?

Answer: This can happen if you or previous user have previously set up a mobile anti-theft password on your android using a Sim card. Some phones also comes with factory locked privacy protection, in either way you will still need to insert the anti theft password and the phone will be unlocked.

Other Reasons Include:
  • You Forgets Mobile Anti-Theft PIN.
  • You have wipe or reset your phone.
  • You have previously set up mobile anti-theft password using a sim card.

Possible Solutions And Methods

Method 1:Try Using a Combination Of Default Passwords

If you can't remember setting up the mobile anti theft feaure, then chances are that your phone came with a factory locked privacy protection from the manufacturer. You can Try using the different default passwords like 0000 or 1234 or 000000 or 123456 when it asks for the privacy password. If this doesn't work for you then try Forgot Password and sign in with the Google account otherwise try a factory reset or Method 2 below.

Method 2: Insert the original sim card

   You can easily turn off the anti-theft Services, if you still have the original sim card that you used in setting it up. All you need to do is: Power off your phone and reinsert the original previous SIM card that you had for your phone.
  • Power on your phone.
  • Once your phone boots up, open the "Settings" app to get to your device's settings screen.
  • Locate and tap on "Security".
  • Look for "Mobile Anti-Theft" or "Anti-Theft Services" and either click the check mark off or the switch from "On" to "Off". There might be slight varying differences on the set up of the screen depending on your device.
You can now insert a new SIM card in your phone without getting privacy protection password lock.

If you do not have the original SIM Card for the phone, you will have to try method 3 or 4 below to see if you can bypass the privacy protection password.

Method 3: Flashing Phone Stock Firmware/Rom Using Sp Flashtools



Downloading and flashing exact stock Firmware for your phone can help you remove/fix the problem. You can do this by following the 8 simple steps below:

Select and use Correct Firmware, Wrong Firmware Can Brick The Phone !!!
  1. Download the latest version of SP Flash tool from its official website HERE
  2. Remove the battery from the phone and then slot it back before booting the Smartphone or device. If your phone has an inbuilt battery then you can simply switch off your device. 
  3. Open and launch the SP Flash Tool as an administrator in the system.
  4. Click on the ‘scatter loading’ option present towards the top-right below section.

5.   A window will pop up and select the file with the name of the model of your phone to Load scatter file for your device.
6.   You’ll see a list with boxes. The list includes tools like preloader, mbr, ebrt, uboot, recovery, cache etc.  Untick the box in front of the item that you don’t want to flash. Once all the files you wish to flash are ticked, click on the ‘Download’ tab.

7.  Connect your switched off phone to the PC/Laptop via USB cord. You’ll see a progress bar running on the PC. Wait till you get a success message with (a green circle with ok).

8.  Disconnect the phone.
Do a Factory Reset in recovery mode to prevent errors.
NOTE: If you wish to format your phone, select the Format Tool from the options.  In the Format Tool make sure that ‘Auto Format Flash’ and ‘Format whole flash without Bootloader’ are selected. Then connect your switched off phone to Laptop/PC via USB cord and when you see the success button, you can disconnect the phone.

Method 4: Miracle Box Method

Requirement:

Download Miracle Box 
DOWNLOAD
Download Miracle box drivers Here
* PC
* USB cord
* Manually Install Mediatek VCOM drivers
* A Tecno, infinix, gionee or any other MTK device with PPP ( Privacy Protection Password locked).

How To Use:

1. Extract the content of the Miracle Box to your desktop. Open the folder and run "Miracle_Loader_2.27A"
2. Wait till the Miracle Box program is launched
3. Click on the MTK tab
4. Click on the Unlock / Fix tab and  Tick Clear Anti-theft.

5. Click the drop down box and select your MT Chipset type viz: 8th Boot.
6. Click the Start Button
7. Connect the phone to the PC (must be switched off still with battery inside)
8. Press the power button once (this is to ensure that your device is detected immediately). DO NOT hold down the power button else the phone will boot up normally
9. Wait for the process to complete. It may take few minutes, wait until you see the message ‘Done’. (You need to wait a few minutes before the phone will boot normally)
10. Disconnect and power on the phone.
   The MiracleBox method will work for you. If you can't get access to a computer to perform a software flash/reset of your device, you will have to find a local cell phone repair shop that can perform the software flash on your device. 

Method 5: Emergency Contact Solution



   This is very useful, if you or the former phone user has forget password. Actually when setting up the privacy protection anti-theft security, There would be a setting to add a trusted administrator as an emergency contacts phone number. Your emergency contact can easily get your protection number by sending a request to your phone. They will received a text message to confirm they had been added but they would also get one anytime a new SIM card was inserted into the device. This user will also be able to send requests to the device which can allow you to get your protection number.

The registered mobile number you add as a trusted administrator(Emergency contact) in anti-theft
 during the privacy protection password setup process, should receive a text message that your phone has been stolen. You can reply to this message using certain hashtags to get responses back which can be very beneficial to you. By just replying to the message with # password# or #mima#  (with hashtags )within few seconds you will received a message containing your pin entered that pin and unlocked your phone.

   There are three commands that you can send to your phone ( from your emergency contacts cell phones) . One of the commands will send you back a new privacy protection password to unlock your phone. The command is # mima # (with hashtags ) . I sent that word from my husband' s phone and I received a message with a new code to unlock my cell phone. Once I did , I obviously changed the code and also you can turn the anti theft off so you don't have the problem any more.
1. Emergency contacts are used to send remote control commands.
2. When SIM cards are changed, notifications will be sent to emergency contact via SMS

List of Remote control commands:

For the text message they are sending, have them(the Emergency contact) use either (#password#) or (#mima#) (without the bracket, just the number sign) to fetch the anti-theft PIN and be able to get past the privacy protection password screen.

1. Remote phone lock send message #suoding#
2. Remote data wipe Send message #xiaohui#
3. fetch back anti-theft PIN  Send message #mima# or #password#
4. New Remote unlock command #unlock#

    1. You can try using the Miracle box method 3 if you have a PC. It won't erase your data and files just make sure the required MTK drivers has been installed on your computer

    2. Can you show me the way to download mtk. Drivers

    3. I just resolved PPP issue without flashing. You need to recall who you nominated as emergency contacts at the time you activated the anti theft feature. That person would have received a message allegedly from you informing them your phone may have been stolen. With your sim card still in the said phone, ask your emergency contact to send these codes to your number #unlock# OR #password#
      The first one instantly opened the phone remotely. The second option sends a code to your emergency contact's which you can retrieve and use. This is what worked for me just some hours ago after several frustrating days.

  15. I had asked my recovery recipient to try out #mima# or #password# and it didn't work for me but what actually did was the command #unlock# it responded and opened immediately. At least it saved me the hustles of not having to flash my phone or format it but I can use my phone though I still had no idea what that password was. So I upgraded to Android Nougat which no longer has that option but still offers some awesome security features. So hope this helps you too.

  49. Thank you so so much. You're a life saver. The codes #unlock# and #password# worked perfectly for me and i didn't have to flash my phone after all.

    #Unlock# instantly gave me access to the phone (infinix zero 3). Whilst #Password# sent the password to the emergency contact's line. Trick is to ensure the SIM is in the same phone and not another.

    ReplyDelete
  50. if a msg. send to a trusted administrator, is it the number of the person who is phone is locked?

  56. Thanks a lot. I was already sweating thinking if having to flash my dad's phone. I felt it was my fault for removing the Sim before backing it up.
    I was the emergency contact but I didn't make any sense of it until I stumbled on this site.
    I was able to calm down and send the message and it went. It was so awesome. Had to note your website and come back to thank you.
