When you enter a wrong password/pattern/code a number of times, your device will lock your account. You will have to provide the email (Gmail) and password you used to sync your Google Play store with. You will also need to be connected to the internet via WiFi or data connection. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset. Do the following to do a Factory Reset:

If you've already tried to retrieve your Google account information by going to this website, your only option at this point is to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your device's data; however, it's the only way you can unlock your tablet at this point. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android tablet, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. After the reset is complete, be sure to log your tablet into a Google account to which you know the information so you won't have to perform another Factory Reset in the future if you forget the password again.

If you cannot remember the Gmail account used on the smartphone, then there is little you can do to save your data. If it is a Samsung device, you can log on to https://findmymobile.samsung.com and click "Unlock my screen" and "Unlock" to get into the device. Once again, contact people who might have used this smartphone so that he or she recalls the Google credentials to unlock it. Otherwise, you will need to turn off your smartphone and erase it completely. To do that, check the "Factory Reset Android Devices Not Booting Normally" section of the tutorial. Afterwards, you will need to create a new Google account (you can use our video to help you with that).

Pattern lock wrong entry tried many times, now locked?

My phone is locked, how can I unlock it without hard resetting?

One of the most common ways to unlock an Android device is using the Google account associated with it. Keep in mind that using this method won't erase any of your data. However, to do this, you must know your Google account username and password, and your phone must be connected to the Internet.

Follow the steps below to unlock your phone using your Google account:

  1. 1
    On your lock screen, tap on the 'Forgot password?' option.
    This option will be displayed below the password section. If you can't see this, it means your phone is not locked, even if you haven't been able to access it with your pattern. Therefore, you should enter the wrong pattern five times or more in a row to lock the phone and use this option.
