The most obvious thing that many people do when they are first faced with the privacy protection lock is to try to do a hard reset. But it dawns on them that a hard reset cannot solve this problem. It is a serious problem that can’t be solved by resetting your phone to factory settings.

What is Privacy Protection Lock on Android?

First, before we proceed on our topic on how to remove Privacy Protection Lock from SOWHAT S5 Smartphone Using a Computer, we need to first understand what this we are dealing with is. Privacy Protection is a kind of special protection for Android devices, besides FRP, that ensures that no one will use your phone after doing a factory reset with a SIM card different from that which is set to be used. For example, if I enable mobile antitheft settings on my phone, it’s only the SIM cards present during the time I am enabling this setting that will only be allowed to be used. If I insert any other SIM card, then I will have to provide Privacy Protection Key to unlock the phone. I sometimes back did an article on how to unlock the security code on itel it5081.

Now, since carrying out this exercise is going to cost you all the data you have inside your phone; make sure to make a backup. If you have decided to forfeit all your data, proceed. The first step is to launch the NCK Dongle MTK version. If you have the NCK dongle or box, it is good for you. If you don’t have one, you can use NCK Dongle MTK version Crack. Launch the NCK Dongle tool. In this tutorial, I am using NCK Dongle MTK version

Step 2

Now, after you have launched your NCK MTK tool on your computer, the second thing you do is to select the correct flash type for your SOWHAT S5smartphone. Now, the reason why I chose NCK is that it works pretty fine with NAND flash, unlike Miracle Box. Miracle Box works fine with EMMC. NCK works well with both. Now under Flash type, click on the dropdown key and scroll down to MT6572 NAND. This is the flash type for SOWHAT S5. After that, on the dashboard, click on the SERVICE button.

Step 3

Now, Under SERVICE, you will see many other options, Click on the RESET PRIVACY button on the far right side.


Now, at this moment, the NCK Dongle MTK tool will initiate this command and will now wait for you to connect your smartphone to the computer through your USB data cable.


Step 4

Now, it’s time to connect your phone. Switch off your phone or simply remove the battery and place it back. Don’t hold any key; connect the phone to the computer with your USB data cable. After the phone is connected, as soon as the connection is established, NCK will detect your phone, and immediately, it will start removing the Privacy Protection lock on your SOWHAT S5. Wait and don’t interfere with the progress. It should take about a minute.

As soon as it shows the green bar with 100% on it, it means it’s done. Disconnect your phone from the computer, remove the battery, and place it back. Power your phone on and wait until it boots up. It should boot up successfully and this time around, without Privacy Protection Lock.


Kindly follow the steps above keenly. While NCK is reading your phone, put the phone in a stable place where you will not move it or temper with it. If you accidentally interfere, it might result in your phone getting damaged.
