    Hello,
    I'm currently using TWRP recovery, with a custom ROM installed. Changing lock screen password doesn't change the secure boot password, I'm not able to disable secure boot either. I tried to wipe system, data, internal storage and cache partitions, but I couldnt disable secure boot.
    Thanks in advance:)

    Don't use Secure Boot password feature when using a custom ROM or TWRP recovery, as it will cause more issues than its worth.

    What do you mean you cannot disable it?

    I tried to disable lock screen password, tried changing password, And also switched ROMs, but I have to enter the password during the boot up, and it doesn't change with the lock screen password either

    So you're saying you need to enter 2 passwords when you bootup?

    No, I can't remove or change the password which is asked during bootup,

    There will always be a password after bootup if you're encrypted.

    The only difference is if it's Secure Boot on boot that doesn't allow usage of the device state all until the password is entered.

    With Secure Boot enabled it also ask for a password when booting into TWRP recovery, if you select No secure boot, it doesn't.

    Thanks for your help,
    My problem is in oxygen os I could disable or change the password which was asked during boot up, (It changes when I change the lock screen password), but when I use ROMs I couldn't:)

    Yes, as I said don't use Secure Boot password with Custom ROMs, or if you have TWRP installed for that matter.

    Even if you make TWRP nandroid backups or flash different ROMs, always disable any password/pin.. etc and fingerprints before doing so.

    Best bet is probably return to stock flashing OOS, wipe/factory reset afterwards.

    Boot into TWRP and use the built in file manager to delete /data/sytem/locksettings.db.
