My phone isn't coming up with the sign-in option after 145 attempts?

Ad

145 password attempts is certainly a lot of attempts. If your phone isn't asking for your Google account information after 145 attempts, something is wrong with your phone, or maybe you didn't actually log into a Google account in the first place. You will need to perform a Factory Reset to take care of the issues, as well as unlock your phone so you can use it again. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this in-depth VisiHow article. When your phone has completed the reset process, be sure to log it into a Google account to which you know the password. Then set a simple device password that you can remember -- like 1111 -- and enter the wrong password up to 20 times. If your phone still doesn't ask you for a Google account username and password, call the manufacturer of your phone and troubleshoot the issue with their customer support representative. It's possible that something in your phone has malfunctioned and it won't allow you to log into your Google account.

I forgot my PIN on my Samsung Tab 3, and I don't know what to do.

Help! Can you figure it out? I don't know how to get access to my tablet!

First, go to https://findmymobile.samsung.com/ and enter your Samsung account credentials that were used on Tab 3. Then, click "Unlock my screen" on the left panel and "unlock" in the middle of the window.

If you did not have a Samsung account or the Tab 3 has no access to the Internet, then you will need to reset it to the factory settings, which will erase all of the data on it as well. You can use our tutorial on how to reset Samsung Galaxy Grand: the process is exactly the same on Tab 3.

I forgot my Google account password and my PIN to unlock my phone? What can I do?

I put a pattern to lock my phone, and my 2-year-old son played with my phone. He tried to open the smartphone with the wrong pattern. I don't know how to reset and remove my password?

If you need Google password to reset the PIN, then you need to reset the Google password itself. To do so, navigate to the Google recovery Web page and select "I don't know my password". Enter the account e-mail address (log-in name) and click "Continue". Enter the last password you remember. If you do not remember it, click "I don't know". Answer a series of personal security questions to reset your password, and you will be able to reset the password.

If you still cannot recover the password, then you will need to hard-reset the smartphone and set up a new Google account afterwards.

How to change PIN number for lock-screen?

I have an S5, and I incorrectly entered my PIN number. How do I change it?

To change it, you will need to enter the old PIN.

  • To change the PIN when you are in the smartphone, press the home button. Go to "Apps" > "Settings" > "Security" > "Screen Lock" > "PIN". You will need to enter your unwanted PIN to change it to a new one. If that does not work, then tap on "None" instead of "PIN" first. Then, tap on "PIN".
  • If you cannot enter your smartphone, then use https://findmymobile.samsung.com. Enter the Web site by typing your Samsung password and user name. Then, click "Protect my device" > "Unlock my screen" > "Unlock" to unlock your smartphone. Change the PIN as described in the bullet point above.
  • If that did not work, then you will need to hard-reset your smartphone as shown in this tutorial.
