How to unlock the password pattern on my Xiaomi phone?

Hi, I have completely forgotten what pattern I drew as my password pattern on my Xiaomi phone. Now I cannot enter my phone and access even the main settings since my phone always asks me to draw the pattern which I forgot. Please help.

If you have forgotten the lock screen pattern password on your Xiaomi phone, you have a couple of things you can try to unlock your phone. First, enter the wrong pattern up to 20 times until your phone asks for your Google account information. When you enter it, your Xiaomi phone will unlock. You can then remove or change the pattern to something you can remember. If you have forgotten your Google account password and username, too, you can use this online Google tool to try to retrieve them. Unfortunately, if you are unable to recover your Google account information, your Xiaomi Android phone doesn't ask for the information, or if you never logged into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset on your phone to unlock it. This will wipe all of your phone's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Xiaomi Android phone, follow the step-by-step instructions in this great VisiHow how-to article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to draw your pattern password on a piece of paper so you can refer to it in the future if you forget it again. Keep this piece of paper in a safe and secure location so nobody can find it and you don't lose it. In addition, be sure to log your phone into a Google account to which you know the information so you can use it to unlock your Xiaomi Android phone if you forget the pattern in the future.

Hard reset the phone. Try a soft reset first by holding the power button down for 30 seconds. Follow the steps below in the VisiHow article to recover your phone. If that does not work then you will have to flash the firmware again.

I broke my phone, and I want to retrieve the pictures that I saved on it. What to do?

I broke my phone screen and it "unlocks" but not really because the screen stays black, but the home button and the back button, light up. I also feel the vibrations when I type on the screen, but I don't know where I'm pressing, plus the broken screen also types on its own (random vibrations like buttons being pressed.) I'm planning on buying a new phone, but I have pictures on the phone that I'd like to save. Fixing the phone would cost too much in my opinion. Is there a way I can use my Android file transfer WITHOUT needing to enter my password?. I have tried: Not really sure what I can do.... I think it was caused by: Dropped a dumbbell on the phone. 24 kg one

Since you have not mentioned what type of phone you have there is the option of using Samsung Kies with a Samsung device or using the root tool in the article below to transfer the images. However if the SIM card is damaged or other parts of the phone are corrupted you may not be able to retrieve the pictures. In the future use cloud storage like Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud or DropBox.
