    We can't help you, really sorry for your data loss though but once it's gone, it's gone.
    Maybe there had been alot of pocket touches due to the absence on pocket mode in 7 series, and wiped all your data once max. numbers of tries were reached.

    Also you can't lock your phone settings

    This is not normal and should not happen to any person. However I don't think it has anything to do with Oneplus software or even native android software.
    My bet is, you were using some sort of security app which you had granted permission to wipe out phone if a defined number of password attempts is reached. Yup, that's just it. (Blackberry had it as a native feature. On Android a few external apps do this job).

    Yeah, because it doesn't happen every day. I wear my phone in my jeans' pocket and the biggest thing happened was the notification area was pulled down. If the phone is locked the chance that you unintentionally press the correct PIN is very-very-very minimal.
    Except if smart lock keeps the device unlocked, then, of course, it can wander in the phone's menu.

    Well, switching between user isn't possible when the phone is locked.

    If the phone was locked when it was kept into the pocket, then this would not have been the case.

    Well there's a lot that can go wrong here! I wish that the thread creator had checked his phone prior keeping it in the pocket.
