Google implemented the Google ID and password feature since a lot of people forget their pattern locks. Entering the credentials for your account will allow you to unlock the Tablet and make a new pattern unlock that you can remember.

If you don't remember your Google account details, your device will stay locked unless you perform a Factory Reset. Note, however, that performing a Factory Reset will wipe all the data from the Tablet. With that in mind, read this in-depth VisiHow guide to learn how to properly perform a factory reset on your Android tablet.

As long as you know your Google Account credentials, you will be able to access the device quickly. Attempt until you can use your Google Account. If this does not work, then you will have to hard reset your phone, and all the data on the device will be wiped out.

Go to Google on the PC and login to your Account. Under My Account there is a Security section and within there is an Applications section.
