Before you try to unlock your Android phone by performing a Factory Reset, try to recover your Google account information by going to this online Google tool. If you can recover your information, enter the wrong lockscreen password up to 20 times. Once your phone asks for your Google account information again, enter it; your phone will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password to something you can remember. If you are unable to recover your Google account information, however, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. Remember: a Factory Reset will wipe all of your Android phone's content, including your pictures, videos, contacts, and music. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in the VisiHow guide linked here. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the information so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future should you forget your Android phone's lockscreen password again. If you need to sign up for a new Google account, click this link. After you've signed your device into your new Google account, be sure to write down your new lockscreen password, as well, to make sure that you have a backup in case you lock yourself out of your Android phone again.
