Even though your phone is locked, because it's connected to the Internet, it's possible to unlock it without losing your data. Using your Google account to unlock your phone is one of the best and easiest ways to unlock an Android device. However, in order to use this method, you must have access to your Google account. If you can't access to your account, in the event of a forgotten password or username, you can reset the account using the Google account recovery tool.
