Ok, solution was really quite simple, this may be enough:
Disable lock screen password
Enable the lock screen password. When it prompts for the new password, it should show just the numeric phone dial keypad.
Makes sense in the hindsight, though I tried other things before I figured it out. Just in case, here's a list of steps I did. Again, the bolded ...
It sounds like your company enforces a security policy on devices that are connected - you may see that the option to turn the password off is also disabled. This is the case with my employer's connection, although they allow up to 5 minutes before requiring a password.
If you remove your work email account, you should see the restrictions lifted until you ...
in case you lose your phone every service has (or should has) a contingent plan.
In Outlook.com (Security Info) you can configure your phone to be called(sms too) after that you can generate a new QrCode to read in a new phone.
YESSS!!! IT IS POSSIBLE. here is my simple cheat for the voicemail p/w dilemma on my WP8... Without creating a contact in your phone book. The commas wouldn't save for me after trying the above. So I used a lower case letter p. AND yes I know WP8 limits the input in the phone settings area SO- The trick is to type it into a text anywhere else-
Perform a Hard Reset on your phone. That seems to be the only way out. But be warned. It obliterates all the data in your phone...and you will start everything all over again, just like you got a new phone out of the box:
Press and hold Volume Down and Power at the same time until you feel a vibration (about 10–15 seconds). Ignore the slide ...
No there default password. Could someone else have set it? Did you buy it from someone?
The only way to access the phone if you can't figure it out is doing a hard reset.
(I'm assuming you're not taking about the Microsoft account but the lockscreen pin)
There is currently no way to back up these codes, unlike Google Authenticator on Android, which has a convoluted (but possible) backup process.
Best practice seems to be to backup the original QR codes yourself (the ones that you used when setting up the auth).
I wouldn't want to rely on each service's contingency plan, that sounds like it would be a ...
There is no way to do sync this in any way.
My guess is that they just do some mind tricks or read the fingerprints on the screen.
Who is this "someone"? and how does he/she guess the passcode? does he tell it in 1 go without talking to the phone owner?
I use and would recommend LastPass, but don't go on my word alone. Steve Gibson a security researcher did an in-depth review of LastPass technology and explains in easy to understand terms why you can trust them. A shorter text-based explantion can be found on the LastPass Blog that references Steve's work.
They do not ever know what your passwords are. ...
You would first need to know your Voicemail number. You can go to the website of your carrier, or simply call.
Then, you would need to use the copy/paste method used on Cellenbow's answer.
Type the number in a normal text box, then highlight and copy, go to the Voicemail input box. And paste.
You would need to use either , (comma) or p (pause). Comma can ...
