How to unlock forgotten password without reset?
So I set my password last night. The next morning I forgot. There is no option for forgotten password. What can I do to unlock my phone without data reset? Is there possibility to unlock without IMEI too?
If you enter the wrong password enough, your phone will ask you for your Google account information. Enter it, and your Tablet will unlock so you can remove or change the password. If you don't remember your Google account information, recover it here. If you didn't log into a Google account, however, your only other option is to perform a Factory Reset. While this will delete all of the data from your phone, it's your only option at this point. Follow the steps in this VisiHow guide to learn how to perform a proper factory reset. When the Factory Reset is complete, be sure to sign into a Google account on your phone so you won't have to reset it should you forget the password again.
