Vodafone Protect app has locked my device

I have the vodafone protect app on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4), and the vodafone protect app has locked it.

 

It asks for a pin number, and when I try to reset my pin on the vodafone website it says "There is no valid account associated with your number."

 

I can't remember my password or pin, and i keep getting that my number isn't valid with the app.  I've had a link sent to my email but I continually get the meesage above and there is NO link to click that says "forgot my pin"

  

Any help would be much appreciated as this is just SO frustrating :smileymad:

Re: Vodafone Protect app has locked my device

Hi Tech team - I too have a Galaxy S4 with the Vodafone protect app on. Having taken out the SIM card and re-inserted the same SIM it now asks for a PIN which I'm sure I didn't set up in the first place. Please could you guide me through how to go about un-locking my phone.

Hi Ihosein,

 

The default PIN for the phone will be 0000.

 

Give this a try and let me know how you go on.

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew

Hi EricaMateus, 

 

The default pin is 000000. 

 

What is happening when you click the link in the email you've received?
