I figured there was probably no way it would change the PIN by itself but it could be some sort of bug. Are you saying that it's possible to change someone's PIN through their gmail account? The only way I can think of that working is if they logged into my account and used the Android phone locator to change the PIN but to do that my phone would have to have been unlocked at the time. I use an authenticator to access my gmail account so I don't know if that would even be possible.

Hello, My Xperia XA ran out of battery yesterday and turned itself off, when I was able to start charging the phone it turned on and kept saying incorrect PIN when I used the same PIN I've always used on this phone. I've tried multiple methods to figure this out but ultimately I am absolutely sure what my PIN is supposed to be and the phone won't accept it. Sadly I didn't think to connect this phone to a Sony Account for the "Find my phone" service which could've been able to bypass the lockscreen and I don't have MTP mode enabled so I can't transfer my personal data from the phone to do a hard reset without losing everything. I think my only option is to forget all about my personal files, contacts, and messages to do a hard reset and regain function of my phone but I was hoping there could be another option? Maybe something through recovery mode? Or if there have been cases of the phone changing the lockscreen PIN by itself if it changed to something in specific? Or even if this might be a bug? Thanks
