Today, many android phone users use the inbuilt unlock pattern to give security to their phones.

Important: 

  • This method deletes all your data and apps.
  • In step 2 of this method we use three keys Volume up, power and home. But in some phones home is not available so you can press Volume up and down with power button.

Here we are not going to tell you all combination of buttons for factory reset. So you can search for your specified android smartphone or tablet.

Use your Google account for unlocking

  • When you try different patterns and unable to unlock your phone in five attempts. Then a message pop-up on your screen which shows two buttons “next” and “try again”.
  • Now click on “next” button and you see two options for unlocking your phone. One is to answer the security question and the second option is to provide Google account details.
  • Most of the people don’t set a security question. But if you set it then simply answer the question and unlock your device quickly. Otherwise, check the Google account option and click “next”.
  • Now provide your Google account username and password attached to your device and click on “sign in”.
  • After that, you are directed to choose new pattern and now you can unlock with this pattern.

After following this guide tutorial, now you can access your android device as the pattern lock has been completely disabled. This is all about how to unlock android phone or tablet if you forgot the pattern. Hope this helps you in unlocking your device.

Other Screen Lock Options:

Most Android devices running at least Android OS 4.0 offer five different security options to lock your display. In addition to drawing a pattern, you can slide a finger across the screen, use facial recognition technology, or enter a PIN or password to unlock it. Device manufacturers may label options with slightly different names, but functionality should be fairly uniform across brands.

  2. This is just a normal process and YES, you cannot access if you do not have internet enabled through Email recovery process. And next is, if you reset the whole handset, your data is gone forever. So, I’ve given a way to reset the passcode without loosing any data. And also, for future safety, always enable debugging settings on your phone before you encounter such issues. Link-> http://bit.ly/1D8RPqf
    Also, what if you delete your files accidentally? There’s an app to store all the dump files and through that you can recover any file you want. Check the link above for this too 🙂 Hope this helps you guys.
