Unfortunately, if you have forgotten your lock-screen password and your Android phone isn't logged into a Google account, the only way you can unlock your phone is by performing a Factory Reset. As you may already know, this will erase all of your phone's data -- including the forgotten password -- to take it back to its original factory settings so you can get into your phone once again. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow how-to article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your Android phone into a Google account to which you know the information. This will allow you to reset the lock-screen password in the future if you forget it without having to perform a Factory Reset. In addition, be sure to write down your lock-screen password on a piece of paper so you can refer to it in the future if you forget it, as well. Keep the paper in a safe and secure place so it doesn't become lost or stolen.
