So I am playing around with fiddler web proxy. I need to decrypt https traffic. So I am trying to put the fiddler root CA cert in my device trust store. But it keeps asking me "Enter the password for credential storage". If i enter anything and click enter I see an Toast message saying. This goes on in a loop. The value for it increases each time the password prompt is shown. For eg - 3 CA certificates, 4 CA certificates and so on As much as I want my device to accept this certificate I would appreciate if someone could explain the "credential storage" concept and the weird increment of CA certs text.
Intercepting Android network calls using Fiddler Web Proxy. I could now install the certificate. I had to disable pattern screen lock and try installing certificate again.

How to fix the "credential storage" roadblock in Android - Pocketables
Aniket Thakur. Aniket Thakur Aniket Thakur If you are unable to disable PIN, password or pattern unlock on your Android device, it is likely that you have the setting in place in order to use one of the following functions see a more detailed description for each one after the list below:. The first three in the list above are fairly easy to spot as they are all located under the security section of the settings menu.
However, it can be easy to forget that you have set a password in order to use a VPN, so if having checked it is not one of he first three requiring a PIN, be sure to check that you have removed any VPNs. Screen security is either set by you, or can be required by a device administrator app. It makes your data more secure should you lose the device and takes around an hour to set up. If you are unable to remove the PIN code from your phone, check that you have not encrypted the handset.
You can do this by looking under the encryption part of the settings menu. Some applications will require administrator access to your device in order to perform certain actions. When using an app that requires administrator access, it will usually prompt you from within the app to turn on administrator access. The majority of apps that do this will also show a message to inform you that you need to revoke administrator access before uninstalling the app, which is important.
Some apps only require administrator access to perform certain actions, so you do not necessarily need to grant administrator access to use the entire app, but only to use certain features. Sometimes the app will require that you set a secure lock method as part of its administrator access. One such example of this is adding an Exchange email account. You need to grant the app administrator access with certain permissions and set a secure lock method.
Be in the know.
This is usually so that the device can be accessed remotely if lost or stolen. If you are unable to remove the PIN setting from your device, it may be because an administrator is requiring it. If it is an account, such as email, that is requiring the security setting, you will also need to remove this from your device in order to remove the PIN lock. This makes it easy to forget that you have set up PIN security for it.
If you have tried changing the three settings described above but your handset still requires a PIN number, you may have a VPN that needs removing. Hi, that was very informative. Thank you!
Why can’t I turn PIN lock off on Android?
I CAN!!!! I set a pin trying to set up a vpn network. Now my phone requires the pin when I want to use it. How do I disable the pin? I have a galaxy note 3. I would advise that you try adding a vpn and removing again, and then try removing the PIN through the normal means. You may also need to reboot the device. But I did so without revoking administrator access before uninstalling the app; as you so clearly state I should do. I already tried the other solutions provided here, to no avail: I have no VPN, cannot decrypt my storage, cannot clear credentials, and the only device administrator Android Device Manager is disabled.

You could well be Herman. That solved my problem exactly. Thanks, I would never have guessed that it was because I set my GMail account up on the email settings.
Do you have any idea what i can do to remove the pin? Hi Jesse, no this cannot cause any damage to the device. It is a way of removing stored settings for a device administrator.
