Brief Answer:
Confusion after a seizure

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I believe I understand what you are asking and thank you for choosing this platform for your question.
Usually, a seizure, which involves loss of consciousness, is followed by a period of confusion and drowsiness. The person may appear disoriented, nauseous and usually with little realization that they had just had a seizure. This may last anywhere from 5 to 30 or more minutes, depending on the extent of the seizure.
It is very unlikely for a person that has suffers a seizure to look up or figure out a phone passcode.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Kibd regards
