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 Xolo X900, I can't open through Google account?

I can't open it because I forgot my password and my pattern, the phone is not accepting my Gmail


If your phone is not accepting your Gmail, you may have 2 step verification enabled. Login to Gmail on the PC and go into My Accounts. Under Security towards the bottom of the page there is a section on Applications. Go in and disable 2 step verification. You can then use your Google Account to access your locked device.

The Xperia Z1 comes with a hard reset button underneath the SIM card. Push that to hard reset the device. You will then have to install new firmware which can be found here.


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

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.

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.

Clicking on the given site I just got the apps connected to my device. What's next?

I clicked on the given (blue colored) address and got a page showing the apps connected in my device.Yes , that's true. What do I do next ?

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.
