First, restart your Android tablet. This may fix the problem that your device is having and may allow it to work properly for you to go on to the next steps. If you enter the wrong password up to 20 times, your tablet may ask you for your Google account information. Enter it; your tablet will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this site to try to recover it. If you can't recover your information, your tablet doesn't ask for your information, or you never signed into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset -- which may also help with your tablet's other issues, as well. Keep in mind, though, that this process will remove all of your tablet's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow guide. When the reset is complete, be sure to write down your password and sign your tablet into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future. If your tablet is still suffering from its other issues, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your tablet to further troubleshoot your device with a customer service representative who can help you determine the issue and, if necessary, schedule a repair for your device if the problem is unsolvable over the phone.

If Google has locked your account and whatever program you are using, or device (like a tablet, is not allowing you to reset your password then you need to use a web browser to go directly to your Google Account. Open a browser and head on over to the Google Accounts main page[1]. From there you can reset your password or deal with your account being locked, and then once you fix that you will be able to log back into tablet or device.

My daughter downloaded "love photo keypad lock screen" on her Samsung tablet and has no clue what the password is?

My daughter says she never set up a password, only downloaded the app but the screen is locked and we cannot bypass it to uninstall the app. The tablet is useless now. The password contains pictures, not numbers or letters. I have tried: We tried to access through Google account and tried to add a user but you can't access anything from the main account. I think it was caused by: She downloaded the application and opened it without setting a sequence then closed it
