  14. John says:

    So, I have an Honor 8 running Nougat/EMUI5 and this doesn’t appear to work for me. I can follow this, but when I enter a pattern, it does NOT ask me for a backup pin. It just sets the lock to “Pattern” and that is it.

    If I then lock it and enter the wrong pattern 5 times, it says to “wait 60 seconds and try again” — and forces me to wait until I can try the pattern again. Never asks for any backup password.

    Any ideas?
