I have a Samsung tablet from Verizon and have forgotten the password?

How do I reset this device to its default settings?


Before you perform a Factory Reset on your Verizon Samsung tablet, try to unlock it by entering the incorrect password up to 20 times. Your tablet should now ask you for your Google account information. When you enter it, your tablet will unlock, allowing you to remove or change the password to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this site to try to recover it. If you can't recover the information, your tablet doesn't ask for your Google account information, or if you never signed into an account in the first place, your next step is to perform a Factory Reset. This will unlock your tablet by deleting the password and bringing the tablet back to its original factory settings. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Verizon Samsung tablet, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article.

First go to Google Play and see if you have the option of installing remotely a stock keyboard for your tablet make and model or at least the keyboard of the manufacturer. If you can't find one or remotely install one, try to attempt the passcode even if it s wrong until you get the option to log in with your Google Account. If you can't remember your Google account then you can retrieve it with Google Accounts Authority.

If you are getting no option to login using Google you will have to hard reset the Cherry Mobile tablet. You may have to download the Stock ROM back on the device again if you hard reset and you are still being asked for the passcode.

Hi I've got a 7 inch tablet and its got no volume button and I've forgot the pin number

Because you did not mention what your make and model of the tablet is, you should see if there is a tiny pin hole in the back or side of the device. Insert a needle, paper clip or pin to push down on the button and this will hard reset your tablet.
