Anything to do with security unlocking, Xiaomi service centre will not do.... even for local sets.

Coz the first thing everyone will be suspicious ... is this a stolen or reported lost set?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m just sharing my experience here...

Went to service centre before to repair power switch button... they will want you to unlock the phone if can power up for visual check. If cannot power up they will plug in charger let it charge for a few minutes then ask you to unlock.

Before accepting check-in they may ask you to produce copy of receipt to verify warranty then tell you terms and condition, about water damage and estimate charges, they will also tell you they will not be responsible for data loss if you did not backup your phone.... blah blah blah ....standard policy I guess...

For your case.... I assume no chance.

The only possible choice is... go back to your seller and see whether they can help reset the phone...

When the price is cheap.... it’s already a telltale sign ...
if a phone can be simply unlock by using a PC... I think many ppl will avoid coz this is major security issue.

Anyway.. go back to Qoo10 seller and check with them see whether they can help coz no one here is able to help you ...

Very likely you are sharing the same user ID on both phones or MiCloud... many instances ppl clone or transfer data from old phone to new phone and using back same ID. Then when they update some security questions or changing password on new phone, without realising it will also affect the security login for old phone when you attempt to update the old phone firmware.

You talking about Mi account? Its either you totally forgotten your PW, or your account has been hacked... Did you even try the forgotten password?

This sound like you suddenly forgotten your password overnight. Or someone you know changed it? Mi acc doesn't use swipe log in.
