If the app has a forgot my password feature you should be able to set up the password with the email associated with the security app. If you did not set up an email, there should still be one associated with the account that you download apps from which will allow you to reset the password. Unfortunately, if there is no option to reset the password, then you will have to perform a hard reset.

Perhaps you are using the incorrect email and password. Check with Google Accounts Recovery to make sure that you have the correct password. If you still can't remember it then you will have to hard reset your phone which means you will lose all data. How to Hard Reset your Infinix:

You will see in the above answers that you can hard reset your phone and flash new Stock ROM on the device. You may need to attempt the password several times before you get the forgot password option to appear. A trick to try first is to have someone call your phone and answer the call and then go into settings and disable the app lock feature while on the call.

You can do a Hard Reset, but this will delete all apps and data on your phone. Do the following:

  • turn off phone
  • press and hold the following:

power button.

volume up/down or both.

home button (if any).

or look for a reset button or hole.

  • release buttons when you see the logo.
  • choose wipe data / Factory Reset.
  • choose yes--delete all user data.
  • select reboot now.

It is locked with a screen and won't let me do anything. I have powered it off, took the battery out and no matter what I try this same screen comes up that says my phone is locked and it won't even let me get into my settings or nothing?

How can I fix this, I have tried all I know, and nothing is working. I can't make calls or receive them, no text, no nothing

Have you seen the option to use Google to sign in? If not then keep attempting until you see the option then use your Google Account. If you still can't log in then hard reset the phone and if that asks for a Google Account and you never assigned one you will have to flash new Stock ROM on the phone.

Hi, I'm looking for a solution to unlock my Nexus 5?

A small fell on the edge and broke the screen - the digitizer has failed and I cannot enter the pattern to unlock the phone.

You will have to replace the digitizer and Youtube Tutorial shows you how to do this. Here is how to determine what you need:

  1. 1
    If the image under the glass is broken and the touch screen is still intact then you only need to replace the LCD screen
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    If the touch panel is cracked or broken but you can still see images and words on the phone then you need the Replacement Digitizer Screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    If the touch panel is broken and the LCD image is either black liquid or cracked you need an entire Nexus 5 Digitizer and LCD Screen Assembly.

You can connect a mouse to your phone using an OTG cable but it is a learning curve and will probably take several times before you get the PIN code correct. But at least you will be able to access your phone while you are waiting for the repair packages to arrive.
