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 have a Lenovo TAB A10-70 I need to unlock?

I have a tablet as I listed above. I put a password lock on it and cannot remember the password. I am looking for a way to unlock the tablet so I can use it. I will not put a password back on it. Can you help?

Click the Forgot Password prompt or the sign in with your Google Account. You can then access the tablet without hard resetting as long as the tablet accepts your Google Account credentials. If it does not, you will have to hard reset your Lenovo TAB A10-70.

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%.

I hadn't used my Galaxy Tablet 7.0 in a while?

Now when I turned it on, the password screen looks different and it is not accepting my "unlock" password. I do not know what to do.. I have tried: Turn off and turn back on. I think it was caused by: Long time since last use.

Just hard reset the Tablet. You have let it sit for a long period of time and wiping the tablet and then checking for any updates within Settings can refresh the tablet.
