Hi, how to unlock HTM Android phone, too many patterns?


If you've entered too many wrong patterns into your Android device as you tried to unlock it, there are two things you can do to unlock your device. The first and easiest method is to enter the credentials for the Google account with which you associated your device. If you forgot the credentials, or you didn't associate your device with a Google account, you'll need to perform a Factory Reset. Follow this awesome in-depth VisiHow guide to learn how to properly perform a factory reset on your Android device. After you reset your phone, we suggest that you create a Google account to link with your phone so you never have to worry about locking yourself out again.

I have forgotten my Google email address, what can I do to unlock my phone?

After several attempts with a wrong password to unlock the pattern screen, that is when my phone got locked.


Your phone is only temporarily locked when it is in this state. All you need to do is visit the Google Account Recovery portal, and you'll be asked a series of questions that will help establish your identity and ownership of the account. Once you've done that, you'll be able to reset your phone pattern and get back into your phone. Note that you will need internet access for this. If you do not have internet access, then you'll need to follow the other steps listed in the full guide, such as performing a Factory Reset or using the ADB to unlock or reset your pattern.
