As per recommendation to the above suggestion. You need to reset the Tablet to the default values and this will delete/wipe data in the internet storage only, but all other apps, documents and other stuff will be left if they are being installed or saved to your SD card. It is best that you try to recall the email and password and if you cannot recall what it was then reset will be the option.

What you are going to need to do once you have forgotten your password and email for your device is perform a Hard Reset on your device. When performing the Hard Reset the device will lose all of its memory and also will no longer require you to have to enter a password to get into the device.

Also with this device I would need to know the name in order to be able to give you the proper information in regards to how to Hard Reset the device:

Generic steps for a Hard Reset

-Power off device

-Hold Volume up + power

-On the boot menu release the buttons

-Use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

-Press the power button to make the selection

-After this use the volume buttons to highlight the reboot device option

-Press the power button to make the selection to reboot your device

This will reset all data on your device causing you to no longer need a password to enter the device

I forgot the pattern to open my Android tab. How can I open it?

I made an intricate pattern as my password for my tab- which I unfortunately, do not know the brand. When I opened t the next time, I could not access it anymore. I forgot the pattern that I made.


Hopefully, you set up a Google Account either in Google Play, Gmail or YouTube. Keep attempting until you get the option to login with your Google Account. If you do not know your account, you can find out with Google Accounts Authority. Since you do not know your tablet make or model, try hard resetting with the generic hard reset instructions. Most tablets, you hold Home, Power and Volume + or -. If your tablet is a Polaroid, you will have to update the firmware through the Southern Telecom website. If you access the back of your tablet by taking off the cover, usually above or under the battery is the device make and model.

How do I reboot Galaxy Tab 3? Without username pass or backup pin?

I'm trying to reset my Galaxy Tab 3 before the backup pin and info aren't working, but I'm stuck in "ODIN mode"

If your tablet gets stuck in ODIN Mode, hold the Power Button down for 10-20 seconds. If it still will not exit ODIN Mode, let your tablet drain the battery and then process the Hard Reset again if it did not finish before the battery died. Some people have success flashing a blank file onto the tablet to get it out of ODIN but it does not work 100%.
