I tried to unlock my daughter cellphone, she put a password on and forgot it?

I trying to reset my daughter phone because she forgot her password


You did not mention what type of cellphone your daughter has because there are different methods of performing a hard reset. It is also important to mention that if you purchased this phone within the last two years, it is likely to have the Lollipop or Marshmallow Android OS. This means that when you hard reset, you will still need the Google Account last synced on the device.

Since you need that Google Account, if she does not know what it is, then try to recover the details with Google Accounts Recovery. Then you can attempt the password until you see the option for Forgot Password and use her Google Account. Data or WiFi will need to be turned On for this process to unlock the password.

Not all tablets are created equal. For instance, if you have a Polaroid tablet the only way to reset is to connect the tablet to the PC and install an update from Southern Telecom. If you are not getting into the Recovery Menu then try holding down both Volume buttons in addition to the Power button. Then when the Android man appears on his back, some tablets need you to press Power or one of the Volume buttons to enter the Recovery Mode. There are even devices that require buttons to be held for 15 seconds then hold down other buttons for 15 seconds and so forth. Most tablets, however, have a little hole somewhere on the back or side that is a reset option. You sometimes need to push down on that several times before the tablet acknowledges that you want to reset.

Can't get by forgotten password on my zeki tablet?

Have zeki tablet, it won't let me hard rest. I have tried: Everything, every site said, and still won't reset. I think it was caused by: Forgot finger password


You should still be able to use your Google Account to get past the password screen. Hold down the Volume Down button and get a small pin or needle to tap the reset hole. Keep holding the volume until it shows the Android man. You get into the Recovery Menu, by quickly pressing the power button while still holding the volume to bring up a list.
