How to unlock the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 if I have forgotten the PIN code?

Ad

If you've forgotten your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2's lock screen PIN code, there are only a couple of things you can do to try to unlock it. First, enter the wrong PIN code password up to 20 times until your tablet asks for your Google account information. When it does, enter it; your tablet will then unlock, allowing to you remove or change the password to something you can remember so you can use your tablet once again. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this Google website to try to recover it. If you are unable to retrieve your Google account information, your tablet doesn't ask you for the information, or if you never logged into a Google account in the first place, you will, unfortunately, need to perform a Factory Reset on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. This will wipe all of your tablet's data to bring it back to its original factory settings and unlock it so you can use it again. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android tablet, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your tablet into a Google account to which you know the information. In addition, be sure to write down the PIN code password that you choose to lock your tablet with so you can refer to it in the future if you forget it again.
