How to use instabridge to access locked WiFi at a residence?

Can you please tell me the steps of connecting to password protected WiFi on instabridge. I've already downloaded the app to my Android phone

Instabridge allows you to share passwords with other trusted devices and finds open WiFi spots. So if the hotel does not have an open network and the instabridge app is not finding any other options, it means that the WiFi where you are is locked all over and there are no open spots such as the WiFi from the Starbucks in the lobby.

My HTC Desire HD has locked and I have no internet connection and my volume button is no more working so what should I do, my cousin have attempted too many patterns?

What should I do, when I try to enter in my Google account it shows invalid username or password?

If it says invalid username and password then you probably have 2 step verification enabled. Check in your Gmail under My Accounts>Security>Applications to see if it is enabled and disable it. This way you can use your Google Account. If it is not enabled then use Google Accounts Recovery to see if you are even using the correct login details.

Hi, I've forgotten the pin, don't want to lose data, how do I unlock without wiping all data, kind regards?

The phone is Alcatel one touch s pop, I don't want to lose my contacts as these are family, friends and work, regards. I have tried: Different combinations of what the pin might have been.

You can still unlock your device with your Google Account. If you are not seeing that option then use the Screenlock Pro after you remotely install it on your phone from Google Play on a PC. This way you will not lose your data because you will not have to hard reset the device.

I know you can't get into a WiFi network without the password, but I don't know how to get into one without software. Which one should I use and install?

What you are asking to do is illegal. It is against the VisiHow Community Guidelines to post content that can be used for illegal purposes such as the theft of secured WiFi.

My neighbor gave me their password but I am using another laptop and cannot remember their password, they have gone on vacation?

How can I connect to my neighbor WiFi if I forgot the password. I have tried: Well I really don't know what to do. I think it was caused by: I am using another laptop

Since they were nice enough to give you their password, you should wait until they return to set it up on your new laptop. This time, write the password down.

Well the problem is my router is down and my friend next door has got great service but can't remember his password and it does not have the push button?

Anything I can do to get access? I tried a few wps crackers, not working, the linksys router just won't budge

Have him contact Linksys to change the WiFi password. His internet provider can also do a Fresh Start remotely on the router possibly which would allow your friend to put a new password on the router.
