I have forgotten my Google Play Content filter pin and would like to reset it so I can download some apps that are being blocked.

Does anyone know how I can reset the pin?

This article suggests that it can be disabled by clearing the app data for the Play Store. I'm not sure if that's still relevant though. EDIT: Confirmed it works on Android 4.4. – dotVezz Dec 18 '13 at 14:28

You can reset the Content Filter pin by clearing the app data for the Play Store. This will clear the pin and also remove the filter.

  1. Go to Settings > Apps
  2. Tap on "Google Play Store"
  3. Tap the "Clear Data" button.
