How must I login, I forgot my password?

I sent my phone for repair, when it came back I lost all my contacts, songs, photos, and WhatsApp. When I tried to reset my password and when I reached the stage after submitting security code it asked me some information which I put in but I don't have the other information they request like emails that I've sent before passwords that I've used before names of folders I've created before. I have tried: I tried to log in after I googled the steps to log in. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Since you have forgotten your email password and tried to change it already, you will need to contact Microsoft to see if your account accidentally was put on hold for the password reset. You also might need to request a code be sent to your device for any new updated password to work.

Access Outlook on your PC. Most likely you saved "Remember Me" and the email you used will be there. Otherwise try to think of someone you recently emailed using the Outlook account and the Username as well as the email should be in their email account.

You will have to hard reset the Microsoft Lumia 535 if you forgot the password. Unfortunately, this means you will lose all of your data. If you keep attempting your pin on the phone it could lock you out indefinitely and you will need to do a hard reset anyway in this case.

You will have to hard reset the device. When the screen was repaired, the shop should have hard reset the device for you. Do it now so that you can access the phone again. You will need to go through the steps of setting up all of your accounts all over again.

Please help me to update my WhatsApp. I have tried: Sobiaasad123456789. I think it was caused by: Forgetting password creating problem

You can change your Microsoft password as explained in the VisiHow article on this page. If you are referring to the pin lock on the device then the only way to gain access will be a hard reset. This will delete WhatsApp so you will have to reinstall the app once the phone restores itself.

I lost my mobile screen password?

You will have to hard reset the device if you are on Windows OS. On Android or iOS you can use an email recovery program but not with Windows OS.

Every time I try to do a factory reset it says you must do it in a sequence of patterns with the volume up down and power button but before I can finish, it switches off what can I do?

Try to a factory reset, you are supposed to hold the volume up button then it will show you the exclamation mark then it tells you; you must press in a sequence while the exclamation mark is on but before I can finish, it switches off, what can I do?. I have tried: I tried going on to different websites, they all give you different information but none of them seem to be working. I think it was caused by: I forgot my password

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Your screen lock is short. This is why it is doing this. The only way to hard reset is to write that pattern down then do it quickly. You only need to press each button in the sequence once. Remove the battery if you can on the device first before starting the hard reset process.
