At this point, all you have to do is enter the popular PUK code for your Pixel to generate a new PIN. Since then, the smartphone does not require any password and it unlocks automatically, leaving the door open for any malicious person. According to David Schutz, this problem is the direct result of design selection on the part of Google.
The developer explains that the company Mountain View has created a security screen system that determines the order of priority between the various barriers to unlocking: PIN code, fingerprint, PUK code, etc. The latter’s access to the screen, all others are deactivated, due to the low priority. A minor bug that has thankfully been corrected in the latest security patch, available on Android 10, 11, 12, 12L and 13.
