    I have activated the fingerprint reader on my OnePlus 3T. As such I was asked for a backup security measure, which will be asked for after each reboot, and there I chose the security swipe pattern.

    Until this morning everything worked as expected and I had to use my security swipe pattern once, at the beginning of each session.

    Then suddenly something changed and the phone is now asking for a PIN code instead of a swipe code, only problem is: I have never set a PIN code, so of course I don't know it!!

    Is there any way to switch the PIN code back to a security swipe pattern or disable it all together? If I don't find a solution I will have to reinstall everything from scratch, which I would really like to avoid. Any help greatly appreciated!

    If you have a backup you don't have to reinstall anything.
