I switched off my phone last night. And when i switched it on, even after entering the correct password it showed incorrect password. So only option left was to reboot my phone. And when i went to lock screen setting to change my lock screen from swipe to any other lock screen type. It showed "screen lock was already changed. Try again with a new screen lock"
Really bad experience.

Many of us are facing the same problem. Had to do a hard reset of the phone. it cannot be a bug I think someone did something online otherwise how can it affect so many phones at the same time.
