Yes, you can reset your device with your PC if it is set up to allow that. You can use the ADB tool, but only if you're previously enabled ADB. Information on using that tool to reset your Android password is linked in the main guide. To get there, either scroll to the end of the article summary presented in this Q&A, and follow the link at the end of it to the full guide, or click the title of this page. In the intro, select option 6, which will take you to our guide on using the ADB tool.

In the event you do not have ADB enabled on your device, you will unfortunately need to perform a factory reset. In the event your data is extremely important, you may try using the paid Screen Lock Pro app to unlock your Android device. Just note that it requires an internet connection, and is not guaranteed to work on all devices. For device specific help, you'll need to follow the link and contact the developer for more information.

How do I remember the password to my Tablet without resetting all the data?

I can't remember the password to my Android Tablet and I really don't want to perform a Factory Reset on it, as that will erase everything. Is there a website that will tell me what it is with just my Google account information?

You can not get your password using Google tools, however, if you have an internet connection, you can reset your password. To do this, visit the Google Account Recovery Portal, where you'll be asked for to establish your account details, and can then remotely reset your password. Once this is done, you'll then be asked to set a new password, and can log back into your device normally.

I need to reset my password on my Android device but I am failing to. I don't want a Factory Reset because I have important documents on it?

I used my Android device last night, but this morning I found that the password I have always used is being rejected. Either someone changed it while I was sleeping or something else weird has happened. I have a very important document on it and need to access it like yesterday. Please help

I have forgotten my sign-in password for my Lava Android phone?

I have tried to enter different passwords 30 times in my Lava phone. It gives me 5 chances, then asks me to wait 30 seconds before re-trying. The cumulative count continues!. My problem is that the phone is not prompting me to provide my Google sign-in ID/password details, which you say will enable me to fetch my Lava password.. In the circumstances, how do I go about invoking Google?. Grateful for your response.. Anil Lamba. When will Android require me to provide my Google sign-in details? After how many password attempts? I have tried 30 times already but no such prompt has come up which allows me to retrieve my Android password without factory reset. I have tried: I have tried different permutations/combinations as password 30 times. I think it was caused by: I have forgotten my exact password, hence I am trying the gamut of password possibilities that I employ
