Hi there..I shut my phone off and restarted..ever since it is asking me for a “secure startup” password, which I do not recall ever setting. I know my Koodo PIN, that's not it.. I'm down to a handful of attempts left and can't think of anything. It's an LG something...I don't have my original box or paperwork with me; bought the phone thru Koodo about 2 yrs ago. Any ideas?

"Secure Startup" on Android, protects your device by using a screen lock when your device turns on. Require a numeric PIN or password to decrypt your device each time you power it on.

You Can Bypass Android's Secured Lock Screen In several ways.
Method 1: Use Android Device Manager (ADM)
Method 2: Use Samsung's 'Find My Mobile' Service, if applicable to your device.
Method 3: Use The 'Forgot Pattern' Feature.
Method 4: Perform A Factory Reset.
Method 5: Use ADB To Delete The Password File
