The built-in pattern lock tool is useful for adding an extra layer of security to your Android smartphone. What happen if you forgot your pattern and want to know how to unlock android phone or tablet? Pattern lock is very important for those who have sensitive data or have personal files in their android devices. This will help you to prevent your device from unauthorised use but the trouble starts when you forget it.

This tutorial will show you how to unlock and reset your android device lock pattern if you have forgotten your lock pattern and can remember your Google/Gmail account.

How to Unlock Pattern Locks on Android Devices

Today, many android phone users use the inbuilt unlock pattern to give security to their phones. This is very easy to use but after many wrong attempts it locked permanently after that you need to enter the user id you enter in the google play store to unlock phone but there is some problem to unlock again if u stop data usage in your device so it can’t be connected with internet and then you cannot unlock phone without this trick.

Unlock pattern without Google account:

In this tutorial will show you how to unlock and reset your android device lock pattern if you have forgotten your lock pattern. Just follow these simple steps to unlock your phone and use again free of cost.

  • Just switch off you android phone and then wait for a second to switch off it.
  • Now hold this buttons all together at the same time “Volume up + Home Key + Power Button” until the phone boots (if your device doesn’t have a home button, just hold together volume up key and power key)

  • Now a screen like DOS will come up with different options.
  • Use the volume key to move up and down then scroll down to “Restore Factory Defaults” or “Delete all User Data” depending on your device options.
  • After clicking on the settings above, now scroll down to “Reboot System Now ” and wait for your phone to reboot.

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.
