I have forgotten my password for my Lenovo tablet. What should I do now?

I want to change the password now.

There are only a couple of things you can try to do to unlock your Lenovo tablet at this point. First, enter the wrong password up to 20 times until your tablet asks for your Google account information. When it asks, enter the information; your tablet will unlock to allow you to change or remove the password. If you don't remember your Google account information, you can try to recover it at this Google website. If you can't recover your password, your tablet doesn't ask for your information, or you never signed into a Google account on your tablet in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset to unlock your tablet. This method will delete all of your data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. After the reset is complete, be sure to sign your device into a Google account to which you know the information and to write down the password that you choose to set so you always have it available to you if you forget it again.

This does not have to do with resetting the tablet. It is about your WiFi connection. Go into Settings and then WiFi/Network Connections. Under Advanced, see if it is configured for WEP, then change it to WPA/WPA2 PSK encryption. Reset your router and then try to connect the WiFi again. A hard reset of the tablet will not fix this. You did not mention what Lenovo tablet you have but now the Android 6 OS has WPS along with newer routers have a WPS button. You have to find in the Advanced setting on WiFi the WPS Push. Tap that while pushing the button on the router. I had to do this with my Moto X Play for stable WiFi right after I purchased.

When a tablet won't power off, it is usually because of a cache issue. Sometimes if you hold down the Power down long enough then the tablet will go through a soft reset. If this does not work, you can carefully open the back cover and remove the battery to shut the tablet down.

I have a Lenovo tablet and had just changed my initial passcode from numbers to pattern and promptly forgot it?

I have Kaspersky (paid for) security and had hoped to be able to unlock my device using this account, accessing it via my laptop. I appear unable to do this. I have signed into a Google account using my device, however, I can simply keep trying forever in groups of 5 to find the code and there is nothing appearing to help in any way. Kaspersky offers phone technical help, but they are now closed and reopen tomorrow at 8AM. Are they my only hope of not losing precious information from my laptop? If not, how do I reset my tablet when I cannot get into it?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

It would be best to wait for Kaspersky. If you used them as your security, your Google Account will not work because it is a third party app providing the security. Your Google Account will not have the code. To use your Google Account, you would do is click forgot password/pattern after several attempts. Then use your Google Account credentials to bypass security. If it is the Kaspersky, they will give you a one-time code once you prove who you are with them.

How can I get a Lenovo yoga back into normal startup from safe-mode without use of touchpad or mouse?

At first, I was restarting in safe-mode because I'm trying to eliminate an issue with iTunes, when I restarted I couldn't get in with my usual PIN - and didn't know my password - NOW I have managed to get in - but cannot uncheck the "safe-mode" option because I cannot tab to it.. I have tried: I have msconfig open - but only have access to OK, cancel & help via tabbing - need to get to the "startup" tab in order to uncheck safe-mode and attempt to get the computer into a normal startup vs selective

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You will need to go purchase a mouse. They are under $8 at most stores now if your touchpad is not working. You could see if you can hit Tab to move about choices and then Enter for selection but a mouse would be easier. Lenovo Support has created a page for how to get out of Safe Mode on a Yoga 3 which would be the same for your Yoga.
