HOW TO REMOVE BLACKBERRY 10 ANTI THEFT PROTECTION



It is no longer a news that BB 10 unlike Iphones that has “I-cloud”, has something called “Anti-Theft” to help wipe or block your device if stolen…

But reverse is the case, maybe not stolen but you forgot your password and wants to bypass it, ease your apprehension For  In this brief guide, powered by sleader I’ll be explaining to you how you  bypass or remove the Anti-theft protection on your Blackberry 10 device in case you never set such or you forgot your login credentials.

The Anti-theft protection is a security feature which is meant to help you track, block or wipe your Blackberry 10 device if it gets lost or stolen.

Disclaimer! This guide assumes the device in question is not stolen. You are entirely responsible for whatever you do with this piece of information.

With the release of BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2, your privacy and security are further enhanced with the introduction of Anti-Theft Protection within BlackBerry Protect.
Provided you have confirmed your BlackBerry ID, Anti-Theft Protection associates your BlackBerry ID with your device, and provides you with the ability to disable your device using a new Flag as Stolen option.
When used, Flag as Stolen will erase your device memory and disable your device, unless the BlackBerry ID which was used to setup the device originally with Anti-Theft Protection, is entered on the device.
In other words, unless your device is returned to you, no one else will be able to setup the device again since they do not know your BlackBerry ID credentials.

It was said you cant downgrade to 10.3.1 but i was able to discover Q10 10.3.1 that support all bb10 model with 10.3.2.2639 to downgrade.

      Hi Stephen,

      thanks for the info. I already did that step as following:
      1. Flashd with original FW
      2. Flashd with Q10 FW >Theft Lock gone
      3. Reflash/Update to latest original FW via Autoloader from your link or OnlineUpdate via WIFI >Theft Lock reappears

      Am I missing somethig out here? Or am I not able to upgrade to the original, latest FW for the TheftLock to stay removed aka. The Q10 FW in this Version will be the Last FW the Z10 will ever see again?

      something close to that is what it seems,….there is another method of the clean unlock where you can now upgrade to latest version when ever u want to,…but for now reflashing your original autoloader will make the anti-theft re-appear…

      Hello, I am too stuck at the lock after the last step. It seems that the latest upgrade "Z10_10.3.02.2876_STL100-2-3.exe" triggers again the lock.

    I have been using Blackberry z10 since March-2015.To avoid automatic background working and draining the battery by BBM i deleted the BB-ID.Few day ago i upgraded my BlackBerry z10 to new version OS 10.3.2. and then i tried to sign in to Blackberry ID through my phone but it says"You can't sign in with a different Blackberry ID on this device. Sign in with the original Blackberry ID used on this device". For creating a new BB-ID i wiped my phone using Blackberry Link, However i didn't turn protect blackberry off.Now i stuck at enter BlackBerry Id. When i typed my Id username i used before on my BlackBerry ,it feedback" Please sign in with the BlackBerry id that was used to set up this device " . so kindly suggest me a solution

      what possibly could be the problem is that you might have forgotten the id or password you used…{remember Case sensitive} but if u are sure of the email then you can use password recovery option so you can get a new password…or better still you can download the anti theft file remove so you can bypass the activation screen…thanks

    The anti-locking works like a charm. But when unlocked, I cannot upgrade to the latest OS OTA or through BB Link. When I use autoloader to upgrade to latest version, the anti-theft feature pops up again. Please help. I cannot use Amazon app store and other android apps.

Both steps 1 and 2 have worked and completed. But after step 2 was completed the first time the phone would not and still will not turn on. Help.
