Out of the blue- G3 asks for PIN to unlock...
Knock codes working fine most of the time.
Just checked some email.... took a phone call.
After the phone call ended, there's a screen asking me to enter my backup PIN code or sign in with my Google account. I cannot "go back" or get out of it until I enter PIN, reset knock code, etc.
Why? Has anyone run into this?

Re: Out of the blue- G3 asks for PIN to unlock...
THAT sounds very odd...suspicious even.
Why would, for no apparent reason, the phone ask to confirm the backup PIN?
I have had some issues (see recent post) about the double-tap to wake and the knock code not working on the first try.
I wonder if there's something really glitchy with the wake and unlock sequences and this is part of it?
Supposedly the new Android update description that refers to fixing knock code.

The Microsoft thing just asked me to enter my account password, which seemed all right to me....I could probably have backed out but couldn't have proceeded with whatever I was doing at the time. There's no money accessible on that phone.
Yes, yours does sound a tad dubious in comparison and all the more so if you have got money in there. But don't get paranoid on my account.
Edit. It could well be a knock code glitch. The v10h EUR update addressed that among other things but since I use PIN rather than knock code I can't comment on that.
