Phone asks for extra password

    This morning I was playing about with Tehering and hotspots to use a phone intercom. As (it seems) a result, now every time the phone even goes to sleep fter its 2 minutes of inactivity, it aszks for a password. That is addition to the one it asks for after a reboot. The passwords were different, but re-enteringthe password on the screen lock settings made them the same. The intercom setup at one stage asked to create a password, and until I changed the screen lock password, that one was the secondary one being asked for. Trying to get wifi and BT working between phones was messy, so I do not know where I set the password that was coming up as secondary. It is not portable hotspot password.

    Sorry this is messy. Can anyone help, please?

    Hmmm....edit: My wife swears that she never had to enter a PIN/word except when actually powering down and rebooting. I have exactly the same phone, but I have never secured it. I did that today....and now it asksx me for two pins as well.
