Using your Google account to unlock your phone is one of the best ways to restore access. In your case, if your phone keeps rejecting your username and password, you may be entering an incorrect password. However, sometimes Google messes up, and even with the correct login information, you might not be able to unlock your phone. In these cases, you'll need to reset your password.

If you forgot your Google account information, go here to try to retrieve it. Then, enter the wrong password up to 20 times until your tablet asks for the information. When you enter it, your tablet will unlock to allow you to change or remove your password. If you can't retrieve it, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your tablet's data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. When the reset is complete, be sure to log your tablet into a Google account to which you know the information so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future.

How do I unlock my Samsung Galaxy Tablet with my Google account?

I am trying to unlock my Samsung Galaxy Tablet, with my Google account but it doesn't seem to work.

Make sure you're entering the correct Google account information by going to this site to retrieve it. If you are unable to retrieve your information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset since you don't remember your Google account username and password. This method will delete all of the data from your tablet. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. After the reset is complete, log your tablet into a Google account to which you know the username and password. This way, if you ever forget your tablet's password again, you won't have to redo a Factory Reset to unlock it; you can simply enter your Google information to change or remove the forgotten password.

I have a Galaxy Note4. I had it set to unlock through fingerprint which also had a back up password and Google login as a last resort. Out of the blue it changed itself to a pin login and does not have any other options to log in.
