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 the original SIM card, there is no 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.

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 users 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 Forget Mobile Anti-Theft PIN.
  • You have wipe or reset your phone.
  • You have previously set up a 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 feature, 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 checkmark 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 on your phone without getting a privacy protection password lock.

Method 5: Emergency Contact Solution

8 Ways To Remove Privacy Protection Password On Android Phones 10

This is very useful if you or the former phone user has forgotten the password. Actually, when setting up the privacy protection anti-theft security, There would be a setting to add a trusted administrator as an emergency contact phone number. Your emergency contact can easily get your protection number by sending a request to your phone. They will receive 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 receive 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 anymore.

    • 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.

  1. #mima# worked for me amazing , can't believe that , and there was a list whe n i set the antitheft , but #mima# was not there in the list of codes , i was thinking , that i'm domed , since SP tools and many other tools , doesn't support my recent MTK chipset , and i don"t have a scatter file and no original rom , are posted yet on the net , thank you brother

    • Please with #mima# being sent from a trusted administrator number, who will receive the new password me whose phone is locked or the trusted administrator? and please what does the #password# works for.Please respond i have been having this issue for 3 days now cant access my phone

  2. Thanks dis mima of a thing worked perfectly, thanks again but like 3 different passcode sent to my trusted admin and only one worked guess its due to persistently sending of d mima, so with d one that worked i can still use it for future openings.God bless you

  3. thanks very much, #mima# from it to my phone i got privacy protection password as message
    one condition both phone need balance to send message

  4. 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.

      • #mima# worked for me, damn anti theft. Have oukitel k6000 pro. Was very weird password tbh, but luckily managed to change it. My gf wondered why I sended sms where reads china and some weird number combination lol. Thanks! -J

  5. Thank You Very Much Mr. Collins! I have tried so many ways just to open My Phone ( Cherry Mobile Flare J5 ), for almost 2 weeks! Coz my last resource would be send back to phone manufacturer to re store my phone fron " Privacy Password Protection ". I tried the two keyword first, but #unlock# was worked for my mobile. Thank you Again-Jovic/ Philippines

  6. Thanks Collins and Abbey. #unlock# worked for me. Others didn't work. But still haven't got d damn password. How will I get the password or remove the antitheft totally

  7. Thank you people. #mima# worked for me. Got the unlock code by SMS in my Emergency contact phone.
    It was simple. My emergency contacts received SMS from the locked phone that it was stolen blah blah…I just to told them to reply the SMS with #mima#. Voila ! In next few minutes they got an eight digit numeric code (must be factory set). That's it!!!

  8. Pls…I'm in Ghana right now…and my infinix hot4 is requesting for my privacy protection password which I can't remember..I used my sister's phone as back up in nigeria…. And she sent d recovery message to my phone so I can recover d password but the msg is not delivering cos I can't receive msg on my Nigerian glo line in Ghana ….pls…any alternative help…please…

  9. Pls help a brother brother..my Sony Experia E4 is demanding for a privacy protection password and i have forgotten the passpowrd.pls how do i unlock it,pls help me now.

  10. Have received code previously when this happened but this time no code is being received just a message that the may be stolen pleas keep the no. Is being received
    What to do?

  11. hello,

    whenever my phone goes into the anti-theft mode, my contact usually sends #mima# as a text to my phone and receives a passcode back as a text, whic i then use to unlock my phone. But this time, she has been sending #mima# for 3 days now with no reply. My phone is an Infinix HotNote.

    what can i do please?

  12. I did the factory reset for my BLU Studio 5.0C but still getting a message to input my privacy protection password. Can anyone help me in this regard to bypass haven't been able to use my phone in almost 3wks. Thanks.

  13. 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.

  14. I do have the same problem with my cellphone (Infinix Zero 4) i need to know if there is a default passcode to unlock the device. I have tried all what mentioned above(0000, 000000, 1234,and 123456)

  15. 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.

  16. #unlock# worked for me. This is how it worked. From my emergency contact, I texted #unlock# to my phone. Then it replyed with a message "phone successful unlocked" that all!
    Thanks.

  17. Thank you so much for sharing such an awesome post. This is very helpful to remove privacy protection in the phone for unlocking. I was also stuck in the same type of problem while changing the network carrier of the SIM, my phone got locked. I searched on Google and found the many software but no one can trusted. At last, my brother suggests me to use unlock codes for instantly unlocking the phone. Just sharing the IMEI number of the phone with country and operator with phone unlocking company. I easily unlocked my phone without any difficulties

    • I use the sim card i ise to set it up, but I didn’t get it done on my itel p33 and ifor the password and mima didn’t work also, pls what can I do?

  18. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!|

  19. Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and amazing style and design.

  20. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  21. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

    • Most of the software like miracle box, gsm alladin and nck box will work for both spd and mtk Android smartphones. Make sure u have your device correct drivers installed and try them.

  22. Perhaps this is a bit off topic but in any case, I have been surfing about your blog and it looks really neat. impassioned about your writing. I am creating a new site and hard-pressed to make it appear great, and supply excellent articles. I have discovered a lot on your site and I watch forward to additional updates and will be back.

  23. Woah this is just an insane amount of information, must of taken ages to compile so cheers so much for just sharing it with all of us. If your ever in any need of related info, perhaps a bit of coaching, seduction techniques or just general tips, just check out my own site!
