My Tablet got locked after enter multiple wrong patterns....how do it unlock it?

The only way left to do is to do a Factory Reset. Unfortunately, this will delete all apps and data on your device.

Do the following to do a Factory Reset:

  • turn off device
  • press and hold the following

power button volume up/down or both home button (if there is any physical button)

or

Look for a reset button or pinhole

  • wait until you see the logo
  • choose recovery mode
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes
  • device will reboot or ask you to reboot

There will only be two ways for you to get into your Tablet if you do not know the password to your Tablet.

1. Will be for you to enter your Gmail information so that you can log into your Tablet successfully. If you need to find out your information then you can go to www.gmail.com so that you can choose the forgotten password/username option 2. Also, you can enter the Hard Reset option so that you can gain entry into your device, but it will cause your device fully reset.

Hence, you are using a phone then you could try recovering your account by going to Google recovery option. However, you will need an internet connection to do so. WiFi or wireless connection and even Data network will do to connect to the internet and go to Google account recovery option by simply taping the forgotten password in your phone. Then, you should input your Google account credentials which you have used to register in your phone. Then the codes will be sent to your account.

How to unlock pattern lock on nextbook premium 7 SE?

Pattern locked, debugging is off, is there a way to unlock this? I tried adb but since debugging is off the adb can't detect the device, there is no volume button so I can't Hard Reset it. It only has a power button, a touch screen for the rest, including volume, home, etc. I can't open the pattern because my niece put a pattern lock on it an she forgot about it because it's been a week now since she borrowed it. Your help will be greatly appreciated sir.

The device will ask you for an email and password to be entered if you try to unlock the device with the wrong password several times, this will allow you to open up the device without losing any information on the device.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Without having a volume button you will not be able to Hard Reset the device unfortunately. Also you can gain entry into your device by using your email/password so that you will be able to gain entry without having to perform a Hard Reset.

How to unlock my Android Tablet which has already been locked?

Yesterday my brother took the Tablet from me to play games but he didn't know the pattern and he went on entering wrong ones.......and after 10 times the device got locked.....now I don't have internet connection to the device.......so what can I do?

This is very unfortunate but you will have to let go off all your data. You need to do a Hard Reset on your Tablet in order to unlock it. Press the power button and the volume up button together on your Tablet for a while and your phone should restart.

You should look for some other options to have an internet connection. Like going to a free wireless connection places. Or by simply buying credits from your Network provider, if your Android device has a SIM slot only. Now, If you can't really connect to the internet, then your last and final option is to do a Factory Reset. This option will totally erase all of your files, applications, music and videos.

The next option you will have in order to gain entry into your device will be for you to either enter you Gmail information or for you to have to perform a Hard Reset to gain entry into the device successfully.
