    Question Trusted Credentials - What happens if they are all erased?

    I noted that my phone comes with a list of Trusted Credentials.

    Back when I had my phone messed up and it looked like a Factory Reset was in order, I thought about erasing all of those to see what effect it would have.

    Rather than do that exercise, I am asking what the downside would be?

    Nothing. I do it all the time to clear the lock screen on my phone after using FoxFi.

    I wiped mine when I was configuring OpenVPN and it somehow disabled fingerprint unlock. Wiping the creds reset it.

    Knowing that now, means that when I first messed up my lockscreen, I still knew the pincode.

    Clearing the Trusted Credentials then would have allowed me to go back to my Pattern Swipe w/o rebooting/erasing the phone?
