Lockscreen Loop: Pixel looping back to PIN screen after correct PIN is entered 2 Recommended Answers 122 Replies 192 Upvotes
Last edited 8/24/19
I have recently updated my Google Pixel XL to Android 9. Noticed that when I entered in my PIN it didn't unlock straight away so was using just my fingerprint to unlock whenever I went to use the phone. Then had the bright idea of restarting the phone to see if that fixed the PIN issue...except when restarting, a PIN is required as double security. I am now stuck: I enter my PIN and the screen goes black as if it was unlocked but then comes back to the lock screen. I keep typing in my PIN and it just keeps coming back to the same lock screen.
- No, I have not forgotten my PIN. It accepts the PIN as correct because any other combination comes up as "Wrong PIN" but when I type in the right PIN it goes black and comes back to lock screen.
- I have since done several restarts and still no change
- Tried rebooting in safe mode but still comes back to lock screen after I log in
