How can I unlock my Samsung 2014 10.2 tablet?

I set up a password on my 10.2 2014 Samsung tablet. I went through the process following the instructions in settings. I was able to lock-down and reopen successfully several times, then I decided that I didn't want it. When I went to reopen, my password stopped working.No matter how carefully I typed it in, my device would not accept it. Is there some way that I can get in and disable my password?. I have tried: Other than carefully retyping my password I didn't do anything else.. I think it was caused by: I was setting up for a more secure set up with "lookout" (antiviral, anti-theft). I think in doing so I also made look out the administrator on my tablet.

Login on the PC and go to [https://my.lookout.com/user/login Lookout Dashboard and remove your device. You can then disable the app on the tablet. Then try your passcode. Hopefully, it was the app causing the conflict. Try your password numerous times until you get the option to use your Google Account.

With the Micromax a67, you have to use your Google Account once you tap Forgot Password in the lock screen box. If you have to hard reset the device because you could not recover your sign details with Google Accounts Recovery, hold down the Power and Volume buttons until you enter Recovery Mode.

Screen unlock problem with my new Samsung Galaxy j7?

Hi, I tried in my ways to unlock my new Samsung Galaxy j7 mobile but still I'm not even able to open my screen home page. Can you please help me?

Is your data disabled? Because you should have received a warning to a 30-second timeout which also gives you the option to use your Google Account. If your data or WiFi is enabled then you can unlock it with your Google Account or go to Samsung's Find My Mobile. You log in on the PC with your Samsung Account to access this. Choose the Lock tab and there is an option to remotely unlock a Samsung device from there.

With no WiFi or data, unlocking will require a hard reset. You could not even remotely install an Unlock app from Google Play without service or WiFi. Sorry.

I forgot my password for Gmail I want to unlock it by connecting it to a computer, is there any software?

Go to Google Accounts Recovery and type in your email address. Google will then help you regain your password after answering security questions. This is simpler than downloading any ADB tools onto the PC and usually, those hard reset your device.

Hello, I have an LG p710 and forgot my code,how can I unlock without loose my data please

Using your Google Account when you see Forgot Pattern/Password allows you to log in without the loss of data. Do whatever you can to use your Google Account because if you hard reset the then it will still prompt you for the Google Account last synced to the device before a hard reset. Without this, you have to go through a few hoops and use RootJunky which can be seen in this Youtube Tutorial.

Forgot the pattern lock of my Lenovo A-536 Android phone please help me with no data damage as I haven't backed up? Regards.

Forgot the pattern lock of my Lenovo A-536 Android phone please help me with no data damage as I haven't backed up? Regards.

Data can only be saved if you use your Google Account to unlock the Lenovo A-536. It will have Lollipop or Marshmallow Android OS onboard which means you will still need a Google Account even after a hard reset. You could try to us Screenlock Bypass Pro by remotely installing it on your phone from Google Play but save yourself $5.00 and use your Google Account. Google has put in place several ways to regain your credentials if you forgot them. Do not change your password through Google as that will put your phone on lockdown for 72 hours.

Can't unlock my Lenovo k4 note after marshmallow update?

I remember my lock screen pattern, but the phone does not unlock afterward. I have tried: Tried unlocking via Google devices, by setting a new password. however, the message I got was that there is already a lock screen set up so the password that I have just entered is not needed. I think it was caused by: The upgrade to marshmallow

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Click Forgot Pattern even though you know what the pattern is and then use your Google Account. You could also put it into Recovery Mode but choose Wipe Cache Partition and then Wipe Dalvik Cache. This does not cause a loss of data but some users reported that after the Marshmallow Update this allowed them to use the old pattern.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If for some reason your Google Account is not working to let you bypass the pattern lock, it will be because you have 2-Step Verification enabled on the account. Go to Google Accounts on the PC and choose My Account. Then click Security and towards the middle of the page will be the 2-Step Verification settings.

I can't unlock an Alcatel Pixi which is been lost and I found it?

Can't unlock a lost Alcatel phone which is been lost that includes the user name and Gmail account password. I have tried: Trying to get the phone unlock but don't know the password for the phone. I think it was caused by: I don't know the password word for the phone which includes the Gmail account username

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You should not do anything to that phone to try to unlock it because it is not yours. Remove the back cover and get the IMEI number and then call the carrier listed at the top or back of the phone. Tell them you found the Alcatel and here is the IMEI number and see if they can find a file for who the person is. If the phone rings, try to answer it because then you can ask that person who owns the phone. You should also report the device to the police as well as locations near where you found the phone.

I can't unlock my S7 edge with a direction swipe lock screen?

Well, I was exploring the settings of my phone. When I stumbled on a new kind of screen lock. It is the one where you only have to swipe in different directions to unlock. So I was curious and activated that one, keeping in mind that I always could use my fingerprint scanner on my home button in case I forgot. BUT, when I closed my phone and wanted to open it the fingerprint didn't work anymore and I could only do the swipes to unlock my phone, and of course I forgot those. Also, I can't find any recovery possibility on that screen
