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
  • choose reboot now

You can also watch this YouTube video on how to perform a Hard Reset on your device:

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

  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.

Hi daniel......my phone is locked and its asking for email address and password?

The wrong pattern was entered numerous times, and the phone locked asking for the email address and password before unlocking it. Its an infinix phone with Android OS

the Infinix phone is asking for your Google account email that is associated with the phone. If you do not know it then you can use Google Accounts Recovery.

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:

How do I unlock my phone if the email option isn't showing up?

I have no Google or email option, just the password screen no matter how many times I put the wrong password in.

Just hard reset the phone. Unfortunately, you have not received the option to use a Google account. If you have a Lollipop 5.1 or higher operating system you will have to flash new Stock ROM on your phone and set up a new Google account.

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 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.

Have cleared/factory setting then reboot system but it is still asking for the password?

Forgot password but the phone is asking for the pin. I have tried: Wipe data/factory reset then reboot system. I think it was caused by: I forgot the pin number

You will have to flash new Stock ROM on your device because you probably have a Lollipop version. When these versions hard reset you still need to give a pin because of new anti-theft measures. You can try the tricks posted above to bypass Google or search for the specific Stock ROM needed for your device and flash the firmware.

I am locked out of my phone. I don't know if there is a real site out there were I can change all of it?

I tried to erase it but no password. I have tried for 3 days, I did a bypass and want to get my phone right. I have tried: I tried, was on YouTube, did all kinds of hard resets and that is were I got the way to do the reset

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If you have hard reset your phone and changed the pin, Google has a 72 hour wait on devices with pin changes. After the 72 hours if you still can't access your device, hard reset again and put new Stock ROM on your device. This should allow you to access your device again because it will be recognized as a new phone.

You do not have to do a hard reset that wipes all your data until after you try to recover the password with Google Accounts Recovery. Choose this option first and the VisiHow article on this page explains how to retrieve your password with a few different options.

I forgot my password, how can I solve this problem?

My phone is Infinix hot 2, I forgot my password, I need to unlock it please

Try accessing the pattern until you get the option to log in with the Google Account associated with the phone. If you see no option to do so then you will have to hard reset your phone and flash new Stock ROM for the Infinix Hot 2. Some people have reported that the flash fails but be sure to remove your battery and re insert it before you start the process of flashing your phone.

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.
