Hi. What is the password name/type you are prompted for after wiping data - Google account, Privacy Protection Password or which? Kindly reply below.

Hi, I tried the above. It does not work. Especially the wipe data option is not under factory mode but under recovery mode. Wiping data does not remove the Privacy Protection Password. It's the one I want to reset.

Yes wiping data does not remove Privacy Protection Password but it does remove a Pin code, Password, Pattern and Vodafone Protect pin.
