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.
