I was able to unlock my screen this morning with PIN and Fingerprint but then it stopped working telling me that my PIN was incorrect.
The only option was to Factory reset my phone but now when I want to setup a Screen Lock and add a PIN I get the following error:
Screen Lock PIN has already changed. Try again with the new screen lock
I cannot set any Screen Lock so my phone is open and vulnerable, has anybody had this and solved it?
Screen Lock is secured by Knox so is there away to delete a PIN in Knox?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have just received the news that the patch is ready to be sent.
It will be available for Beta users and also for users that rolled back to Android 9.
For now, it will be available as a regular FOTA update (So please make sure to go to Settings > Software update > Download and install).
We are also working on forcing an update on the device for users that have the screen locked but can't (or don't want to) the factory data reset.
I will try to update you if I learn anything else! Cheers!
Same issue too
It just started a while ago...but its not recognising my pin anymore
As you can imagine this can be a huge Issue as if I restart the phone it will ask for the pin to unlock...and if it doesn't recognize it ...I can't access my phone which is super bad as I don't want to reset my phone
Can someone please tell us what's going on...this seems like quite a severe issue
Same issue. Somehow managed to reset as I was completely locked out. Now cannot set a screen lock or biometrics. Tried to with/without data restore after the factory reset but still same issue.
Same problem. This is ridiculous. Today all of a sudden my screen was locked and it was not taking my screen lock pwd. I had no option but to wait for the battery to completely drain and then do a factory reset from recovery menu. Now after all this circus, i am unable to set any lock pwd/PIN.
