Welcome SA Tech Help.
Hi! I've successfully ported a Samsung S6 ROM to my phone. However, after flashing the ROM, it is asking for a Privacy Protection Password which I never set up on my phone. Is there any files I need to replace or a command I have to consider (maybe in the updater script or build.prop?) to get rid of this problem? I really need an advice. Thanks in advance.

BTW, my stock ROM is Starmobile PlayClub (Philippine Brand)

Hey Ash, where did you obtain the Samsumg S6 ROM. It must sadly be that the Privacy Protection Password (also know as the Mobile Anti-theft) must have been setup on the S6 the ROM was taken from. This security feature is triggered by a SIM card change. You need to format a certain HEX address using SP Flash Tool - the exact address will require you to do some Googling as it varies from model to model :(
