I have Gionee P5L phone. I was not able to access a site, then thought on starting VPN of the phone; went to VPN, and then it asked to set any of the security: password, swipe, etc. I entered into password section, but didn't press any password, then pressed back button. Now, phone is asking password, but I didn't set any password before.

I didn't really type any password, as I remember. Same thing had happened before with my other Gionee P5W; but then I tapped on forgot password, it asked me security question and allowed me in. Here, with P5L, on tapping forgot password, it says me on me to have not set any security question and the only option as to factory reset.

What do I do to remove this password wall?

  • If that's a VPN app try uninstalling that from safe mode if possible – beeshyams Feb 13 '18 at 11:27

    Thank you for the comment. I didn't install VPN app, I tried starting the in-built VPN. I don't know about safe mode, I will see on whether I can remove password via it or not. – Immortal Player Feb 13 '18 at 11:38

In order to enable built-in VPN, you must put a screen pattern or pin code, that's a security feature. So you did put a code, just remember

  • NO I DIDN'T PUT A PASSWORD, I REMEMBER THAT! :) – Immortal Player Feb 13 '18 at 12:37
  • I tired with my first 4 numbers of my phone number, it opened! If any are having this problem, try doing this. – Immortal Player Feb 13 '18 at 12:45
  • You put your firt four numbers as password, that's a fact! This won't work for everyone having this issue . – esQmo_ Feb 13 '18 at 12:48
