    Go to your phone's Settings (the gear icon at the top right of the screen when you drag your finger down the screen from the top). Under the Display setting or Auto-Rotate box, make sure the Auto-Rotate option is checked/highlighted. Go to your messages app and open the Settings (three dots at the top right of the screen). Open Settings there, tap and open General. Now rotate your phone to the landscape (long-ways view). Inside the General tab scroll down to Settings and click on Password. Now in this rotated view you can see two fields instead of one. Input your "Old Password" (whatever you choose) and then retype that in the "Enter Password" field below. Click "Ok". Now use this password to access your "secure box" messages by clicking the Messages menu (the downward pointing triangle on the top left of your messages screen) and choosing Secure.

    If you delete the contact that you sent to your secure box from your contacts then it returns all messages with that person to your general box.

    Thanks to all for help with this.. (Except the unnecessarily unpleasant comments from a couple of earlier contributors..)
    I have an HTC One M8 and moved some texts to Secure... When I tried to retrieve them it asked for a password but I hadn't set one up.
    Thanks to the help on this forum I went to Messages, then Settings (3 dots at top right), the Settings again and then General and finally Password and it enabled me to set a Password (had to type it twice) and now I can retrieve them. RESULT! I am afraid that if you have FORGOTTEN a password set earlier this won't work as you have to enter the old password first.

    Try using your Google Account password. The one that you are signed into your Android with. Not the screen/phone lock, the actual account loaded with your contacts and more.

    Anyway, I thought it was my only password that I use for any password that I create. So regardless, I need to know a solution, because I need them for court as evidence, so I wanted them SECURED!
