I cannot access my Android because the Google account I used and the pattern was changed by the person who stole it?

My Android was stolen and the thief changed the log in details including a Google account now am locked out please help me to unlock it

Hard reset the tablet. Thieves will install spyware sometimes to get your personal information for banking and other financial passwords. Hard resetting will wipe these out! This way you can start fresh again on the tablet. You may also want to flash new firmware on the device but that is not completely necessary unless you hard reset and it does not let you set up a new password.

How to unlock my Android Tablet, even I cannot remember my Google account I.d and pass?

I cannot remember my I.d and password.. but my pattern password I remember those..

If you remember your pattern on your device then this means that you can gain entry into your device without having to perform a Hard Reset or logging in with your Gmail account.

If you wait patiently for the device to turn off the time limit because of the wrong pattern attempts then you will have the option to enter your pattern unlock so that you will, in fact, be able to enter your device.

If this option never presents itself then you can use the Gmail account entry, if you have forgotten you information then you can visit the link below to recover your information:

My Samsung mobiles is locked after too many unlock patterns by my little brother, it displays Type email ID and password, but ... it doesn't accept it even if it's correct, is there anyway to save data without using Factory Reset settings

First, try to unlock using Samsung's Find My Mobile. Your Google Account may not be working because you have 2 step verification enabled. You can find out on the PC in your Google Account under Security and then Applications. If it is, then disable that.

If you still have to hard reset, transfer important data to the PC via [www.samsung.com/ca/kies Kies]. You can then restore your device with Kies also once you have completed the hard reset.

HOW DO I UNLOCK MY NEXUS 5 DEVICE?

Unfortunately, I have forgotten my pattern combination, I tried too many times but I fail. How can I unlock it without losing my files.

The only way to not lose data is to follow the instructions in the VisiHow article on this page under the section about backing up data. You should keep attempting until you can login with your Google Account. This way you will not have to hard reset.

I can't reset my password on my Google account with my PC. It requires my old phone number and that phone number was already lost. Then also I've tried to create a new one but Google keeps on saying that "there was a problem in creating your account..." That's it?

Additional info. I can still access my Google account in my phone. I can open it because it has been saved. The problem is, my tablet. It requires my Google account but someone changed my password.

Hard reset the device. If you can't complete the process of retrieving your password through Google Account Authority, it is best to hard reset. Sadly, you will lose data but be able to set up your tablet. If you synced your Gmail with your PC, you may be able to go into Chrome and see what the password is.

Restore LINE account which was accidentally erased by Android Device Manager?

My friend's phone was stolen so I came up with the idea of using Android Device Manager on my phone to track her phone. Short story, I accidentally erased all the data that I thought was hers, including my LINE account that was signed in on my phone. I don't want to make a new LINE account because I have so many contacts on my last. I already tried to sign in with my last email and password after I downloaded new LINE app, but it says 'error occurred'. is there anything I can do to get my last LINE account back? please help. I have tried: Make a new LINE account. I've searched the solution, said I can get it back by name my LINE ID with my last one so the contacts I have can still reach me through my new account, but when I want to name it, it said 'this ID is still in used'. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You should have received a new email verification when you installed the new app. This is why you are not getting access. You can see how to do this through Line's Help Center. You can also cancel the old email address to put a new one in.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If you still can't access, wait 24 hours. Line will lock out users that make too many attempts for 12 to 24 hours as a security measure.

You need to go to Google Accounts Recovery to get your forgotten email or password. You may have clicked on a link while skipping steps in the VisiHow article. You need to follow the steps to gain access to your device. The link you clicked I think was for the Unlock app which would bring you to your Google Play account.
