How to unlock phone if password attempts are incorrect and I don't remember the Google account email and password?

A child in our house made many attempts to unlock my phone which was locked by a pattern and now the device is asking to enter the Google account password and ID which I don't remember. What should I do?

If you don't remember your Google account information, you can try to recover it here. If you can't recover your Google account information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your data from the phone. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this awesome VisiHow how-to guide. When the reset is complete, be sure to log into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future.

Hi. The fingerprint option on my Samsung Galaxy S5 is locked, as it accidentally went off too many times in my pocket, and I cannot remember my alternate password. I have no access to my phone whatsoever. Could you assist me in getting back into my phone without losing any apps, photos, etc.

How to unlock Galaxy S3 without password or losing data?

Hi, I upgraded my mobile and gave my Galaxy S3 to my granddaughter at Christmas. She had previously used my old S2 so she is familiar with password. However, after setting up her own password (which we knew) she went around a friend with her phone and when she returned her password would not work...I tried umpteen times to get in, just changing a character at a time but without luck.

I know it is possible to get through the backdoor using Android developers tools to remove the password but am not confident in doing this. I do not want my granddaughter to lose all the photos she took over Christmas.....it doesn't matter about the other data and contacts etc. Can you help please
