I have an Android all-in-one PC and I forgot my login password; do you know how to break into my computer to reset my login password?

I contacted ACER and was told to send the computer in for service because the login password can not be reset. Is this true?

Unfortunately, without the model name (something like "DA220HQL"), it is hard to tell if there is a possible workaround. However, Acer does insist that all of the models can be fixed at their service centers without indicating whether all of the data will be erased. What they say is "This process [bypassing the password] is only used within an authorized Acer repair facility. Contact your local Acer Service team to inquire about pricing and service options".

A lot of new Android devices also employ the anti-theft feature that will not allow you use the device even after hard-resetting it unless you recall your original password.

However, with the knowledge of the model name, there might be a re-flashing solution with or without special devices that can be purchased.

How to exit kids mode when pin code is forgotten?

I forgot my pin code to exit kids mode using Tab 4 and don't know how to get out. I have tried five times and it asked for an alternative password which I cannot remember. Tried to reset it using the power button and volume up but that did not work.

Try the universal PIN code: 0000. If it did not work, try again several times until you may get the "Forgot password?" prompt that you can tap. Then, proceed with on-screen instructions.

If this did not help you, you can try clearing the cache too. Press and hold the power button to turn off the tablet. Press and hold the power volume up buttons at the same time. Release the power button when the Samsung logo appears. Release the volume up button when the Android image appears. Now, use the volume buttons for navigation and the power button for confirmation. Select "Wipe cache partition". Select "Reboot system now".

Try to see if you can unlock your phone now. If you are still stuck, let us try to get your phone into the safe mode by turn off the tablet first. Turn on the tablet. Hold the volume down button while the tablet boots. Unlock the tablet (it will be possible in the safe mode). Tap on "TouchWiz Home". Tap on the applications folder. Tap and hold the "Kids Mode" icon to drag it to the trash-can icon. Now, cycle power to your phone (turn it off and turn it on).

The problem is about WiFi password...I just forgot it...I have a Samsung S4 with Android system?

I don't like to root the device...is it possible?

Doing anything to your device will do nothing to the WiFi password. The WiFi password is set by the WiFi router. If you own it, you can reset the router by looking it up, finding its model on its body, and resetting it according to its manual. Resetting includes either your logging onto the router from a browser on a computer to change the password or your resetting it with a pin. If you do not own a WiFi router, then the ISP is responsible for generating or changing the password.
