How can I get into my locked tablet if Google account won't accept my information, please help me?

I know it's the right information it just won't unlock it

It is probably because you have no internet connection. The only way to get it to work is by performing a Hard Reset. You will lose all your data and apps.

Do the following:

  • make sure to charge the Tablet full
  • turn off the Tablet
  • press the following:

power button

volume up/down or both (try different combinations)

home button (if any)

or look for a reset button/hole (http://screencast.com/t/eRfxnjsl)

  • release the buttons when you see a logo
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete all user data
  • choose reboot now

If all else fails, send your Tablet to the nearest service center to get it fixed.

I don't remember my password which I put on my device but on my laptop, I can access my Google account. I think I have changed my password?

I think I have changed my Google account password but don't remember which I put on my Android phone.

If you can remember your previous passwords, enter them until your phone unlocks. You can also try your current password since your Android phone should have updated itself when it was last unlocked. You can also check this site to make sure you're entering the correct password. If none of these options work, however, you will need to perform a Factory Reset to get back into your phone. Note: this procedure wipes all of your phone's data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android device, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your phone into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future.

I forgot my pattern and now Google account won't work?

I have just found my phone again after a long time, but I have forgotten my pattern password. Then it says to enter my Google account email and password. I entered the email and password but it says invalid. I went to my computer and I logged in with the same email and password and it worked on the computer but won't work on my phone. What do I do?

Unless your phone has a Valid WiFi or data connection turned ON, even if you enter the correct email address and password, it will not recognize it and it will not work. The last resort is to Hard Reset your phone.

How to continue with the set up after a factory reset on a Samsung tablet when I can't remember Gmail password?

My daughter has a Samsung tablet. She and her cousin decided to put a pattern lock on the screen and she can't remember the pattern. I did hold the power and volume buttons and got it to restart then I went to settings and selected factory reset. When the tablet restarted I went through the setup and connected to WiFi, then it asked for the Gmail account and password. The password I set up and I cannot remember for the life of me and I've tried several ones but no luck. I went to g.co/recover to try to reset the password but no luck either, this is the message I receive "Thanks for verifying your email. You weren't signed in because Google couldn't confirm that belongs to you", I blocked out the email address. Any suggestions?

The password that opens my browser is not accepted by my Gmail. Do I have to change my Gmail password now?

I open my browser and can access my Gmail. But, if I try to sign in specifically to my Gmail, it doesn't recognize the old password. My son is trying to orient a new tablet for us, using my old Gmail password and is now stymied. Can't change the dynamics beyond my consternation there isn't an easier fix. I have tried: I've tried nothing beyond repeating the earlier problem that the browser's functioning password is no longer independently opening my Gmail. I think it was caused by: Arbitrary security upgrade? Google trying to improve my security?
