Questions and Answers

Hi, there is no message with " forgotten passwords?" after I entered the wrong password 5 times. And I did not see any email to show me the correct PIN in my Gmail mailbox. Could you please advise?

If your phone is not asking for a Google account username or password, try entering the wrong password another 15 times. It can take up to 20 wrong attempts for your phone to ask for your Google account information. If it doesn't pop up afterward, your phone may not support this feature, or your wireless connectivity may be disabled. If this is the case, you will need to perform a Factory Reset to open your device again. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android device, read through this great VisiHow article.

Forgot password on Samsung S5 screen. Locked out of phone?

I have a Samsung S5 phone. I have forgotten the screen saver password and am unable to get back into my phone. I have a Samsung ID but not for the device that is locked. I've tried Android Device Manager but it hasn't worked. I understand I can recover the password if the device is linked to my Google account. I'm not sure if it is, could you help?

I found an iPhone 5 and it is disabled. I tried all kinds of techniques, but it did not work?

I tried DFU mode in iTunes, but it did not work.

This great VisiHow article is dedicated to unlocking an Android phone to which you forgot the unlock password. If you have found someone's iPhone 5, you will need to return it. The owner likely used the Find My iPhone service to disable the phone so nobody could use it since it is their phone. If the phone does not show any message to help you find the owner and return their phone to them, you should take the phone to your local police station so they can track down the owner.

I did what it said I held down the power and volume key, and I came to the recovery page, I went down to the Factory Reset option I tried to press the power button that did not do anything so I hit the home button it took me to the list of no's and right in the middle there was the option to Factory Reset I went to it and pressed the home button again and it said confirm password but that is the whole reason I was trying to Factory Reset was because I had forgotten my pin number and my WiFi was off?

I have a Samsung Note5, earlier today the fingerprint reader failed and it will not accept a password?

When this first happened to the reader, I got a screen allowing me to reset my password using Google. I did so, being careful about the new password. A few minutes later, the phone locked but did not recognize the fingerprints any longer and the password did not work. I can't get past the request screen. When I enter it too many times, it makes me wait 30 seconds then lets me try again, I never get any other screen.

I set a password on my phone a day ago, and it was working just fine, but now that I wanted to unlock my phone it just wouldn't work, even though I am 100% positive this is the right password?

My phone is a Galaxy Note4, and apparently, in the Android version I have there is no such thing as a "forgotten password" link to access to the Google account and change the password. I also tried to log in my Google account from another device to change the password, but since there is already one set it just wouldn't work (this service is for stolen phones, and you can whether ring it, erase all the data, or set a password if there isn't any already). How can I proceed ? Thank you
