I forgot my App Lock PIN

If you forget your App Lock PIN and do not have a fingerprint saved to your device, you have two options for unlocking a locked application, depending on your Anti-Theft settings:

If you activated the Anti-Theft feature in ESET Mobile Security:

1.Open ESET Mobile Security.

2.Go to the App Lock feature.

3.Type your PIN. Tap Forgot your PIN? in the middle of the screen.

4.If the Anti-Theft feature is active, you are prompted to type your ESET HOME password. Type the password into the Password field and tap Enter.

5.Type your new PIN and tap to confirm it.

6.Type the same PIN again to confirm it. Tap when you are finished.

If you did not activate the Anti-Theft feature, uninstall ESET Mobile Security and install it again.
