Blackberry 10 Anti Theft Protection Removal

Remove Blackberry 10 Anti Theft Protection Lock

Its no news that the new update of Blackberry 10 OS (10.3.2) comes with an updated security package( Anti-Theft protection) which is found inside the Blackberry protect app.

This feature was made to take security measures like wipe, block or locate a Blackberry device when flagged as stolen or missing. When that is done, only the original owner of the phone with the valid Blackberry ID can setup the device again.

Unfortunately some of us buy used blackberry 10 devices which was originally setup using another blackberry id so after updating it to version 10.3.2 it ask to enter the Blackberry id which we do not have or know and thats a huge problem.

This tutorial will be showing you how to bypass the Anti theft protection. Follow the steps below.
