  3. Morning Chuks. please i have been unable to reset my infinix hot 3 554 using this steps. My husband took out my sim and wanted to check if his sim registration was complete that was how my phone got locked. it asking me to enter the privacy protection password. How can you help me please

  4. Sorry about that. Just put back your SIM into your Hot 3. Privacy protection password is solely for your SIM.

  5. Hello! I'm sorry about your situation. Infinix Privacy Protection Password is activated with a dedicated SIM. It prompts you to enter the password once the original SIM is replaced. This step works only for resetting lockscreen password, PIN or pattern and not Privacy Protection Password. Kindly take your phone to technician on the street for ROM replacement.

    I hope you are cleared. I wish to write a guide for unlocking Privacy Protection Password soonest.

  6. If it doesn't work, then try this.

    Remember, when you bought the phone newly, you turned on Anti-theft settings by entering some PIN. Try and figure what PIN you first entered into your Hot 3 aside from lockscreen PIN.

    If you couldn't remember, then try tapping on forget password if you can see it. Enter the email address and your email password that you used to receive email in your Infinix Hot 3 then log in. If you have not logged in with your email in your Hot 3, then meet a trusted phone technician.
