I have forgotten my Android device password?

I don't want to loose any data


Is this the password to get by the lock screen? If it is, then try a few more times and see if the Tablet will prompt you to enter your Google account info. If it does not, and you have a Google account linked to the Tablet, I suggest you pay for an unlock app. Log in to the play store website using the same Google account on your Tablet. Search for and install Screen Lock Bypass Pro here:

When you turn or or charge your Tablet, the app should have installed over the air (if WiFi was turned on). Follow the instructions to bypass the lock screen.

There is no forgot password on my phone after few attempts to unlock?


Not all Android phone has the option to enter your email address if you forgot the password or pattern you set on your mobile phone. Unfortunately, the only way that you can open the phone home screen is to reset the phone to factory default. Resetting the phone would mean to delete all data on phone internal storage. However, data in the SD card will not be affected as you are only resetting the phone back to factory settings. If you made a backup to your personal computer recently, then you can restore it back on phone. But if not, then you need to start from scratch to have them back.

I've forgotten my pattern to unlock my iRola752 Tablet?

I have tried connecting the Tablet to my computer but it cannot find the device

Yes, this is because you do not have the debugging option on your device. You are going to need to press the Factory Reset buttons on your device so that you will be able to reset the device. Turn device off>>press and hold the power button + volume up key>>this will take you to the boot menu.

How to open Samsung T700 Galaxy Tablet?

Tablet automatically updated and now requires a password to open. I never had to use a password before, and the one I think I originally entered is not correct. I have tried to get to factory settings by powering off, then holding the power on button and the up volume button simultaneously until the Samsung logo and the powered by Android appear, but the Factory Reset Dropdown never appears.
