The problem is that my little brother changed my pattern and he put his pattern but now I can't unlock mine?

My problem is that my little brother deleted my pattern and he put his own pattern but he forgot it

Use your Google Account to access your device. Click Forgot Password once you see it while attempting the pattern.

It doesn't work please help I don't know why?

The question is self explanatory

What doesn't work? There are several methods mentioned on this page to access your device in the event that you forgot the lock credentials. If your Google Account is not working then login on the PC to your Google Account and see if you have 2 step verification enabled. This would stop you from using your Google Account to login on the device.

How to unlock/reset egq327m-sl tablet?

My daughter added a random password on her Ematic egq327m-sl tablet. I am trying to either unlock it or reset it. It has no external buttons other than power and no hole for reset

If you assigned a Google Account to install from the Play Store, then you can use that email to unlock the tablet. The hard reset pinhole is actually by the headphone jack on this Ematic egq327m-sl tablet. You will need to use a paperclip or needle to push in on the button to begin the hard reset.

Can you explain how can an unlocking code be changed without me changing it?

Last night, my cellphone unlocking code was not working, and I hadn't changed it. I eventually tried several times with the correct code, but the phone said it was incorrect, and then reset and erased all of my photos, but kept my contacts and most of my apps. Can you explain this? Was my phone hacked?

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Not necessarily was your phone hacked. If the screen was dirty this could have also prevented the code from being recognized. Also, sometimes updates to the OS will do this. One thing to investigate is if you have 2 step verification enabled on your Google Account. You can find this on the PC in Google. Accounts>Security>Applications.

Could someone help me with unlocking my son's tablet PC?

The Cousin of my son has changed my son's tablet code pattern. I've tried several steps without result, except on a computer cause I do not have computer. My son got the tablet PC as a gift from my uncle.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

What Google Account were you using to install apps from Google's Play Store? You did not list what type of tablet your son is using but most give you the option of using Forgot My Password to login with the Google Account. If this is not working for you or you do not have a Google Account on that tablet then you will have to hard reset it. Usually, most tablets have a tiny hole in the back of the tablet or near the jacks to push a pin in and hard reset the tablet. Or use a combination of keys with the Power button to enter into the Recovery Menu.

OnePlus 1 phone is accidentally asking for unlock pattern but had disabled it. Now I don't remember the password. Please help?

I am using a OnePlus 1 phone. I had set pattern lock for the phone, but since it was painful as it used to get locked every time, I removed it. It was fine for a few months. Now recently, I removed the cover as was on a vacation and the flip cover was creating problems for me using the camera and thus removed the cover. It was fine for a few days. Later suddenly it started asking me for the unlock pattern. Now I tried some patterns but did not work. Also after a couple of days, the phone connection is also not there. Not sure how to fix it.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

First, open the back of the phone and check your SIM card. Sounds like there might be an issue with your SIM card. If it appears that the SIM card is inserted facing down properly, then check with your cell phone provider to double check your APN settings. Second, if these do not fix your phone then perform a hard reset. Backup all your important files and information, as the process may erase all data. Hold Power and the Volume Down buttons to enter the Recovery Menu. Select Wipe Data. You will use the Volume keys to navigate the menu and Power to select. Third, the hard reset should fix any firmware issues but if it is still acting strange then your phone has a hardware issue like the motherboard or your SIM needs to be replaced because of damage.

My unit is Huawei mate 8, just purchased the other day. I encounter 'Your unlock password is required' after a restart?

I did not set up a password yet, only fingerprints but my fingerprint will not be accepted or do not match anymore. Can you help me fix this?

Clean your screen with rubbing alcohol then try again. You may have to hard reset the phone, and there have been several people that reported the fingerprint lock on the Huawei Mate 8 is faulty with glitches. Try the last 4 digits of your phone number, 0000 or 1234 to use as the backup password. Because you did not set up any password, one of these codes may work.

Cannot unlock my Android Micromax canvas 3D phone?

My brother entered wrong patterns many times as a result of which phone is locked, now I am unlocking it with Google username and password, it is showing wrong password but it is the same if I am using to access my Google account in my laptop and it is working. What should I do

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Go into your Google Account again on the PC. Under My Account then Security and then Applications, disable the 2 step verification. This is what is stopping you from using your Google Account. One other thing that can stop your Google Account from not be recognized is if the WiFi is disabled.

Hi, I have a Samsung S4 and an S5 I'm trying to backup the data that is on these devices but the users are not coming forth with the unlock patterns?

Hi, I have a Samsung S4 and an S5 I'm trying to backup the data that is on these devices but the users are not coming forth with the unlock patterns. I have tried: Have connected phones to PC but can't browse data. I think it was caused by: Forgotten patterns

Are you using Samsung's Kies? You should try to unlock with Samsung's Find My Mobile first if you registered the device on the Samsung website. It can possibly remotely unlock the phone without performing a hard reset. Also you can use Google Accounts to unlock the phones. Use Google Accounts Recovery if you have forgotten it.

Can you help me access my Facebook and messenger, I forgot my pattern code and there's no timer after I've tried multiple times?

Someone was trying to get access my phone and so I tried to put a pattern lock code for my Facebook, messenger, and photos but now I'm locked out. I promise that I know the pattern code but I tried too many times and now there's no timer and I'm frustrated.. I have tried: I've tried over and over inputting the code, I've tried taking out the battery, turning off the power, trying different patterns.. I think it was caused by: I don't know never had a phone that did this before

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

During the pattern attempts, did you tap on Forgot My Password? If you can't use that to login with your Google Account then you will have to hard reset your device. This means that if the phone uses Lollipop or Marshmallow OS, the phone will require you to install new Stock ROM.

You can use Google's Android Device Manager to lock your phone remotely as long as it is still turned on. This will lock the phone and you can wipe all the data off the phone as well.

Child changed password on Android Note3 and I can not figure it out, need help?

I do not want to lose all my text and pictures that I have not saved to my cloud and I cannot access my phone due to my four year old locking it. I have tried: Passwords I also tried to see if I registered my device through Samsung and I didn't, also I read that there is supposed to be a forgot password button on phone!, that is not on my phone where it is asking for my password

You will see the Forgot Password option in the lock box. After several attempts of the wrong password, it will give you the option to click that and then use your Google Account. The Google Account is what you use as your password for Google Play. Reset Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note2, Note3 Without Losing Data is a VisiHow article that shows you how to backup your data before a hard reset. Once you do this, get the Google Photo app installed on your phone. It syncs often to backup photos that you take. This way you will not lose important photos.
