If you can't get pass the lock screen then only way i can think of is to format it And be careful next time.

thanks for the explanations..
I have privacy guard with advanced options. can you tell me the difference between manual setting (long press), and toogle (single tap, and then the little shield icon on the right will toogle on/off)?
if I manually set the permission, the shield does not turn on, should i turn it on?
if I turn on the shield icon, what permissions will it block automatically (without us set it manually)?

thanks

edit: I see that manually set app's permission related to contacts will turn on the shield icon. does this mean by "enabling by default" (for new apps), it will automatically block all permission about personal data (contacts, calls, and calendar?)?

Single tap will activation privacy guard for that particular app. What kind of permissions it will block depends on the app. Normally wake up and keep awake permissions are never blocked. You have to do that manually. Personal info is blocked with a single tap.

Icon should be activated with single tap and once you change any permissions. Even if doesn't if you change some permission by long press then don't worry. Its still on. Maybe it changes only when certain permissions are changed. (Never noticed this before, so giving my best guess at the moment. Will try to find out something about it.)
