Reset password for HTC Explorer

You really do not want to reset your password if you are locked out. Google could suspend the lock function for 72 hours if you do this. Use your Google Account to login. You will see Forgot Password after several attempts of the wrong pattern. Here is how you hard reset the HTC Explorer:

If you can't use your Gmail, you need to go into your account on the PC and make sure that 2 step verification is disabled as mentioned above. The only other option is a hard reset after you attempt with your Google Account again.

I know the pattern, but I was playing with it by doing the wrong pattern so it has a login page, but to login I need to access the WiFi, yet how can I access it without unlocking it?

What should I do? please help me

Oh no no no! Perform a soft reset on your device by removing the battery for a minute or two. Then power the device back on and try the correct pattern. If you can't login still then you will have to hard reset because there is no way to turn on the WiFi with a locked screen.

Android device is locked while configuring official e-mail through MDM?

My mobile device got locked while configuring my official email through inhouse MDM solution. Kindly help, is there any way to recover it as my support team said factory reset is the only option. My phone is not locked because of invalid attempts. Automatically password has been set with 4 characters but I have set 6 characters in our portal.. I have tried: We tried resetting from our portal and attempted all possible passwords. I think it was caused by: Mis-configuration of official mail had locked my device.
