How to unlock my Android Tablet, having forgotten my pattern?

I have a current Google account for my Laptop. Can I use it to unlock the Android? It says 'to unlock sign in with your Google Account. ' But it won't let me. I do not want to do Factory Reset, as I have photos I don't want to lose.

Yes, you can in fact use the Gmail information that you use on your computer but understand that the account must be linked to the device. The device will need to have been registered with the same Gmail account and not just a random account that you are trying to use in order to gain access to your device.

When it comes to your Android device without having the password or Gmail information you are going to need to perform a Hard Reset on the device:

1. Power off your device

2. Hold the volume up + power button

3. Hold these buttons until your device reaches the boot menu

4. On the boot menu use your volume keys to highlight Factory Reset or data wipe

5. Press the power button to make the selection

6. The device will begin to perform a Hard Reset on itself

These steps will help you to perform the Hard Reset on your device erasing all of your data:

Too many failed pattern attempts would normally lead to a ban from access for a few hours. Depending on your device, this may be an hour to about 4-5 hours. If you have been getting banned several times, the duration of the ban may be longer. This is a security feature of most smartphones.

If you have registered a Google account when you were setting up your device, you can use that to surpass the ban. However, you would need internet access for this.
