How do I get my tablet to work when I forgot my pin code?

I can't get my tablet to work because I forgot my PIN code. I have tried: Just to restart, can't understand what is the easy thing to try. I think it was caused by: I forgot my PIN code

Use the Google Account associated with the tablet. After 5 attempts you should get an option to use the Google Account. Use that to unlock your tablet. Otherwise, you will have to do a hard reset. Depending on your tablet, there are different ways to hard reset with keys. For instance, if you have a Polaroid Tablet then you will have to install new firmware from SouthernTelecom's website to hard reset their tablets.

How do I get access to my phone, I put a pin in and now it won't unlock?

Login on the PC to your Google Account and make sure that your account does not have 2 Step Verification enabled. This can stop you from using your pin. If you changed your pin through Google or Samsung's Find My Mobile then it will take time to sync. With Google there is also a 72 hour hold on the phone if you change your pin through their websites.

Use your Google Account or Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your Note4. As long as you set up and synced a Google Account or Samsung Account with your Note4 then you will be able to remotely unlock the Note4.

You can login on your phone with your Google Account email. You will not get your pin sent to you though but you can clear your credentials under Settings on your Note4 and then set up a new pin. This time, write it down so that if you forget it, you can easily remember it. Another option is to use numbers you are familiar with like your birthdate or anniversary date. Even your home address or first four digits of your zip code are good ones to use.

My girlfriend forgot her code to her phone?

She'd like to get the pictures off of it. How do I reset the phone without losing the photos

Have her use her Google Account. Depending on what type of phone she has there are also other ways of unlocking the phone but the universal way is using your Google Account if you have an Android. You can also connect her phone to the PC and see if you can transfer photos. In the future, she should install an app like Google Photos to sync and store her photos on the phone and PC.

I forgot my pin number? I am changing new pin every 4 days?

I am changing new pin every 4 days. Please send details

If you are changing your pin every 4 days then you definitely will want to make sure your Google Account is synced on your phone and that you leave your WiFi enabled. Switching that often can cause problems with the phone. It is best to make sure that you back up your phone regularly in the event that you forgot your pin or it would not work and neither would your Google Account.

I've tried most of the solutions, but is there a way of "hacking" the phone pin?

I can't seem able to remove the pin and my mother neglected to write it down. I haven't thought of every contingency plan to back up my phone. But if there weren't so many files I want to keep on my device (Samsung S4 Mini, Model SCH-I45).
