How can I open my Android tablet when it is locked from too many password attempts?

My baby sister attempted too many passwords, and my Tablet got locked. I do not know how to open it. I tried to sign into my Google account, but still nothing.

Make sure you're entering the correct information by recovering your Google account here. If you can't recover your account information, you will have to perform a Factory Reset to remove the password. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read this VisiHow guide.

My tablet got locked after entering multiple wrong patterns?

Now it just asks me to sign into a Google account, but I forgot it.

Please reference the earlier question in this Q&A, where you will find a link to the Google Account Recovery Tool. When you open that link, you'll be able to establish your ownership of the tablet, at which point Google will remotely reset your pattern over the internet. Once that is done, you will need to enter a new password, and will then regain access to your locked Android tablet. If you need additional help, let us know in the questions section.

Hi! My tablet was locked after trying a lot of wrong patterns, and now I tried, with the power button and volume-down key, to go for a Hard Reset. But the tablet asks for the OS download?

Samsung GT6200. But it asks for the OS download

Your indicated key combination activates the download mode, which is useful for firmware flashing. In order to enter the recovery mode, instead (in the powered-down state) press and hold the power and volume-up buttons simultaneously until the image of a green robot appears. Then, select "wipe data/factory reset" by navigating to it with the volume buttons and selecting it with the power button. Afterwards, do the same to select "Yes -- delete all user data". Then, choose "reboot system now" with the power button.

I have tried: I do not know what to try as it keeps coming up with incorrect. I think it was caused by: Do not know?

Hello, how do I unlock my phone, accidentally locked with my phone number password?

Hello, I was checking the 'find my phone' feature on my HTC one V Android phone and it asked for the password ---email/ID/phone number.I have used both the email and phone number in the past for my Google account. However, when I entered my phone number, the screen locked and froze there and would not obey any commands. I don't want to factory reset and lose all data. I installed CM security antivirus on the phone. Could this be the problem? Your insight would be appreciated. I have tried: I used unlock pattern and powering the phone off/on. I think it was caused by: The find my phone feature thinks my phone is lost and probably went into a safe mode.
