How can I open my Android phone because I forgot my pattern password?

I forgot my pattern and unluckily my Google account that I entered before is not registered in Gmail? How could I recover my Phone?

You'll need the same Google account that was used to set up the phone when you first bought it. If you can't remember the details, try to recover it at Google's site here:

https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery/

Your other alternative is to do a Hard Reset on the phone, but that will erase all your user data including the pattern password.

You'll need to first find out the brand and model of your phone so you can find out the available Hard Reset methods. Most phones have a recovery mode built in that can be accessed with a button press combination. Different brand phones have different combos.

Some Samsung phones also offer a way to flash a stock ROM image back onto your phone and that can serve to erase your phone's current setup. You'll need the PC flashing tool, USB drivers and the firmware image.

If you do not want to hard-reset your Samsung Tab 3 7.0, then use the methods below to unlock it. If you still cannot unlock it, then you will need to resort to the factory reset.

  • First of all, navigate to https://findmymobile.samsung.com/ and log in with Samsung (not Google) log-in name and password. This will open up a menu where you should click the device that you wish to unlock. Then, click "Protect my device" to expand it. Click "Unlock my screen" and confirm it with "Unlock".
  • If you did not have a Samsung account, then you will need to log in to https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager, where your Google credentials will be useful. All you need is to choose your device and click "Lock". Then, set a password for the lock screen and click "Lock" once again. Check your device for any prompts and enter that password to unlock the phone.
  • You may need to restart your device before you try to unlock it.
