MY DAUGHTER PUT A PATTERN AND FORGOT IT AND WE CAN'T REMEMBER THE EMAIL AND PASSWORD PLEASE HELP

Go to Google Accounts Recovery to get the email and password. There is several ways that Google helps you use the Google Account and it is explained in the VisiHow article on this page. You should try those options first before performing a hard reset. You probably can help her remember the Security Question answer. Usually, it is first pet, grade school name or mother's maiden name. Something to that effect will allow you to get the credentials to login with the Google Account. Whatever you do, do not go to change the password or pattern because, through Google, your phone may be suspended from access with the new pattern/pin for 72 hours. It would be better at that point to hard reset.

If you remember your Google Play/Google Account details, login on the PC to Google Play. Find if you can your phone's stock keyboard like Google Keyboard which is the stock on many phones. When you click install, a device list will come up and your phone should be on that list. If you have more than one connected to your account, you can pull the battery off the back of the phone for something like SCH-1189 which would be the exact model. Then you click Remote Install, give it a few minutes to install and try again to use the pinlock.

Another option to try would be to two fingers long tap on the password field. Your niece may have enabled TalkBack. Two finger long tapping tells the phone that you want to use the actual screen keys instead of voice gestures.

Also, pull the battery for a few minutes to soft reset the phone. This may bring back the keyboard for you. If you had listed what device you were using, I may have been able to give you more options. Many phones have other pinpass methods.

Verizon should have told you about Samsung's Find My Mobile. You were prompted when setting up the Note5 to create a Samsung Account. Hopefully, you did this because you can login to the link provided in this answer with your Samsung Account synced to the phone and remotely unlock it. Samsung will help you remember your Samsung Account if you forgot it. Verizon also should have told you to make 5 attempts and then click Forgot Password which usually appears with the 30 second time out warning to use your Google Account. If you can't remember that you can go to Google Accounts Recovery. Either way, you can gain access to your device without hard resetting.

Unlocking forgorten patten if phone doesn't recognize my user and pasword?

I don't remember my patten and my phone doesn't recognize my password and username. I can access my account on my laptop but my phone doesn't recognize it , what can I do to access my phone again

On the PC log back into your Google Account. In the upper right-hand corner, click My Account. Then go to Security and from there to Applications. Check to see if you have 2 step verification enabled because this would cause your Google Account to not be recognized when logging in with the pinlock interface. Disable it and wait a few minutes. Then try again with the Google Account. You might have to pull the battery and reboot the phone for the changes to sync before you try again.

How do I start the process of recovering a pattern because I have completely forgotten it, besides I don't know the Google mail?

Please help, I have completely forgot, besides I don't know the Google mail

You can't recover a pattern. What you can recover is your Gmail using Google Accounts Recovery. You will have to use the Google Account or hard reset the phone. When you set up a new pattern then you will want to draw it out on a piece of paper and keep it somewhere. Also, patterns can be tricky if the phone is not cleaned with rubbing alcohol regularly then sometimes our finger pattern is not completely registered due to debris and oils that you can't even see on the phone. You should set up a backup pin with a pattern as well. This way you can use that pin if the pattern fails.

Google does not ask for the pattern or Google Account during the hard reset. If you can't get past the Android on his back with the Exclamation point on the screen then hit power, home or one of the volume keys to enter into recovery. Now if you have Lollipop or Marshmallow OS on your phone which is likely you do if this phone is less than 2 years old, a hard reset will still require the Google Account to get the phone set back up. You can set up the WiFi during the initial setup process after the hard reset and enter your Google Account.

In an above answer, there is an explanation about Google's 2 Step Verification. This is the most common cause for a Google Account to not be accepted during the lock bypass process. Check that on your PC before you do anything. If you have to hard reset again, pull the battery first for 5 minutes before attempting the hard reset. Some phones need to have that done to fully go into Recovery Mode.

You do not want to do this. If you check again you will see numerous people complaining that they changed their password during a pinlock and can't use their device for 72 hours with the new password because they got suspended as part of Google's Theft Protection. Instead, get that password from Google Accounts Recovery. If for some reason you still can't retrieve the password with them then go to YouTube and search your device name plus Bypass Google Verification after hard reset. There are ways to get around this for instance, Samsung using the SideSync and LG using Accessibility and Rootjunky. If you can't find your device and the method to bypass Google then you will have to install new stock ROM to the device. Unfortunately, this will void any warranty you may have had on the device.

I know my mobile lock pattern but by mistake I draw a wrong pattern, now lock is not opened, and Google account user ID and password is requested, but I do not know the ID and password, please do the needful and give some ideas sir?

Forgotten Google account ID and password

Since you know what the pattern is, pull the battery for a few minutes to soft reset and try again with the correct pattern. If this fails still, go to Google Accounts Recovery to retrieve those Google Account credentials. If you use YouTube or Chrome on the PC then your credentials are probably synced and logged in. This may help you remember them faster than Google Accounts Recovery.

I lost my my password on my cell phone, how can recover this?

You can't recover a forgotten Pin. Your only other recourse is to use your Google Account to at least unlock the phone. Then you can go into Settings under Security and try to set up a new one such as switching to pattern instead of pin or remove it but you will not get what the original pin was. Sometimes Clear Credentials under the Security setting will wipe everything. You may get lucky. Also, removing your email account as a device administrator will disable the pinlock and then you can set it all up again.

Google Accounts Recovery can help you. Go through the process such as answering a Security Question and you will get your Account credentials back.

Fingerprint access stopped working and cannot remember password?

Switched phone off and simultaneously held camera, power and volume down button, has a pic of a green man, says downloading...do not turn off target

Do you have Samsung OS installed? Either way, it is updating the phone with OS software. Do not turn off the phone because this can brick the device. Let the phone completely drain the battery and die. Then plug it is until the battery is completely charged. Do a dance and pray to every entity you can before turning on the phone. If it boots up normally then PHEW! Otherwise, you have damaged EFS files and although they can be restored, the phone will have to be sent to a service center of your manufacturer.

Now you could hook it up to the PC and see if a prompt appears for you to finish the download process or pull the battery for 30 seconds which restarts the system. These are slightly risky but do work at times. Especially the battery pull method.

Samsung phone login details not being accepted?

HIya. I am trying to use an old Samsung phone but I had forgotten the circles pattern completely. It asks me to enter my Google account details - which I do - but it doesn't accept them, tells me they're invalid. I've just checked AuthSub link from here but it doesn't have my Samsung or any other Android apps on there :-( I'd love your help with this. Are you able to help with this?. I have tried: I've tried more than 15 patterns :(

I've tried my current Google mail login details which are not being accepted.. I think it was caused by: Maybe the Google account when I last used that phone had different password details?

It is very possible that the last account synced had a different password. Also, if you do not have the data or WiFi enabled on the phone then what you are trying to do will not work. Because it is an older phone it should have Kitkat installed which means that you can just hard reset the device. This is your best option. Then you can put in your current Google Account and it will sync your Contacts and Photos saved from your previous phone's Google Account to this phone. Either way, just hard reset it.

Hi I have a nexus 6p and I forgot the pattern when I go to the link I can't see my phone what can I do?

You are going to Google Accounts Recovery? This is the link that gives you the Google Account if your forgot it. Attempt your pattern several times until you get timed out for 30 seconds. When you see that warning, click OK then it click Forgot Pattern. This will allow you to use the Google Account synced to the device. Perhaps if you are not finding your phone it is because you are using the wrong Google Account. Motorola's Support has posted a support page on their website for the Nexus 6 as well as Google has a Support page for the Nexus 6. You will notice that Google warns to know your Google Account before you hard reset because you will still need it after the hard reset thanks to their AntiTheft Protection.

I have lost a whole photo file from my phone. 56 photos that I did not backup (because until yesterday I didn't know how to do that)?

Is there anyway I can find my lost photos, I do not have a cloud account (didn't know about that until yesterday either). Also, how do I recover or retrieve my forgotten password (my daughter in law helped me set up my phone two years ago and she doesn't remember that either)

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Sadly, if those photos were not backed up through your Google Account or a cloud then they are lost forever with a hard reset. You also will not be able to regain a pin/pattern code but you can regain your Google Account with Google Accounts Recovery. It is definitely worth a try because possibly your photos were synced with your Google Account. Once you have set up your Google Account on the phone again, install the Google Photos App. Sync your Google Account from the previous time and your photos might magically appear. Either way with this app from now on, you can set it to save photos from your Camera there. They will appear in Google Photos on the PC. Mine syncs to the PC daily over WiFi when I come home. I have not lost any photos despite switching to a new phone and a previous hard reset.
