    Change Lock Screen Pin Number

    I have a Kindle for Kids, and the screen is all of a sudden locked.
    I did not assign a pint so of course whatever is entered is incorrect and the tablet (gen 7) is not usable.

    Kindle help suggests restoring to factory defaults which deletes all contents etc. with no further explanation.

    Surely there MUST be a simple way to change a locked screen pin???

    Tried changing the profile from the child to myself, and that prevents me also with a locked screen.
    Frustrating to say the least.

    Have the kids set it up?, Inadvertently or other wise ? , Pins are to protect privacy, it can't be to easy to over ride them or there would be no point having them

    Edit, if you try to use an adults profile, when a kids profile is installed, it requires that you set up a pin lock, maybe one of your cherubs has tried to do that, ?
