If you are experiencing this issue, unlock your device manually by following the instructions from this article: How to unlock my mobile device.

This article shows you how to protect your device using the Lost Device Protection feature in Mobile Security.

For the Lost Device Protection feature to work properly, you need to:

  • Sign in using your Google account and Trend Micro account. Do not sign out.
  • Activate Mobile Security in Device administrators.
  • Keep Background data enabled in Accounts & Sync.
