You should try to use your Google Account if you have forgotten the pattern to the Galaxy Y. Once you are inside of the Settings on the phone go to Security and then choose Clear Credentials. First, you may have to select an option like Pin lock and then go to Clear Credentials. Then put the phone in Recovery Mode with Volume Up and Power held down. Choose Wipe Cache Partition and then Clear Dalvik Cache. This will not hard reset the device but it will clear the credentials permanently. You can also go to Samsung's Find My Mobile and under the lock tab change your pattern lock to a pin lock.

For Marshmallow 6.0 pattern lock on my phone?

Forgot Marshmallow pattern lock

With the Marshmallow 6.0, you will need the Google Account last synced to the device so it is best to use that to open the Pattern lock once you click Forgot Pattern. If you can't remember the Google Account go to Google Accounts Recovery to get the credentials. Without your Google Account even if you hard reset, you will need to install a new Marshmallow OS to the phone before you can use it. It is the Google tighter security measure that makes you have to have the previous Google Account to prevent theft.,

I don't have any pattern selected for my phone (HTC Desire). Since morning I am unable to open it, just by dragging the lock?

I don't have any pattern selected for my phone (HTC Desire). Since morning I am unable to open it, just by dragging the lock. I have tried: I shut it down by removing the battery thrice but unable to open it. I think it was caused by: Some zapya (data sharing app ) was getting updated when it got restart automatically. After that I am unable to unlock my phone

Keep attempting until you can click Forgot Password and use your Google Account. You will have to hard reset the phone or use the Google Account since it is not accepting your pattern. The phone restarted possibly because it was installing an updated OS and this is why your pattern does not work.

My mobile S4 Samsung pattern, some digits are not working, how can I unlock this without those?

Sir actually I do not want to remove my pics

The only way would be with your Google Account. If your keyboard is corrupt then go to Google Play on the PC and try to remotely install a new keyboard app. You can also go to Samsung's Find My Phone and use your Samsung Account to remotely unlock the phone but you will need to disable the pattern right away or this will keep happening.

I have downloaded an app lock software and have locked all the apps including settings. Now I wanted to unlock the apps, but I don't remember the unlock pattern.

I think it was caused by: I have locked the apps, but I forgot the pattern

All phones have some sort of button hard reset. What you should do though is contact the app company and request help. If you have the Lookout app, they have a request form to remotely change your password. Other lock apps that are reputable do as well. Do this first before performing a hard reset. In the future, never allow an app to lock all your other apps including Settings. Especially third party applications that can glitch.

How do I unlock my Samsung tablet without deleting the pictures?

I forgot my password and I don't have a Google account. I want to keep the pictures I have on the tablet. I don't care about the rest.

If your WiFi is enabled then you can use Samsung's Find My Mobile depending on which model Samsung tablet you have. You will have had to create a Samsung account to use this. Although not all of us want a Google controlled phone, you should always create the Google Account even if you use it just for backup purposes such as this. If you used Google Play then you signed in and that would be considered a Google Account. YouTube as well is controlled through your Google Account.

If your Google Account is correct but the phone is refusing it, login to your Google Account on the PC. Go to My Account and then Security. On the Security page, is an option to control 2-Step Verification. Disable this and wait a few minutes. Restart your phone then use the Google Account again.
