My Tablet is locked and I cannot open it?

Yesterday I have changed my password and when I went to open it it didn't because the password tab is not coming and I cannot write my password. I knew my password

I am not sure which Tablet that you owned but as I understand your question that you changed the password of your Tablet yesterday and when you tried to use it the next day, the password was being rejected and you cannot unlock it.

Possible reason why it was not being accepted are:

The password you changed on your Tablet was not saved at all and you may need to use the old password to unlock the Tablet again.

Possible reason also that when you select a number that you want was actually a different number. Even if you keep on trying to enter that password, it would not get accepted as it was an invalid one.

Two ways on how you can unlock the Tablet:

Unlock by recovering the password. This is only application if the Tablet is still connected to the internet as you need to try to unlock the Tablet at least 5 times and hit the forgot password. Then you need to enter the email address and the password of that email and the Tablet will send an email to that email address you registered to the Tablet for you to unlock it.

Hard reset. As per the process called, you need to set the Tablet back to factory settings since that you do not know what was the password. This will delete all the contents you have in the internal storage only

As much as possible, try to recall what combination you made as a password to avoid data loss in the Hard Reset. But if the forgot password is still applicable then try to recover the password and reset is your last resort.

When your Tablet is locked and you do not have access to the password of the Tablet as well as your Gmail account that is linked to the Tablet then you will only have the option to perform a Hard Reset in order to gain access back to your device.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There are two generic ways for you to be able to perform the Hard Reset on your device. I will list both ways below in order to help aid you in gaining entry back to your Android device:

Option 1

1. Power off your device

2. Press and hold power + volume up key

3. Release these buttons once you have reached the boot menu

4. Use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

5. Press the power button to make the selection to Factory Reset your device

Option 2

1. Power off the device

2. Press and hold power + volume down key

3. Hold these buttons until you reach the boot menu

4. Use the volume keys to highlight factory data reset

5. Press the power button to initiate the factory data reset option

6. The device will start to Factory Reset

My Laptop will not open, it is asking for a password from Google when I first set it up and I don't have it?

The screen on my Laptop is an Outlook blue screen with a box asking for a password. When I first got windows 8 I had to have a Google sign in but after that I didn't use it again as my email is a gmx.co.uk. I have long forgotten what the Google password is and I think it must be this that is being asked for. I am completely locked out of my Laptop and it is not giving me any options to reset a password. Help

How can I break the password on Ampe tablet?

I have an AMPE tablet that I got from China, but I need to bypass the password on it. How can I do this?

Unfortunately, there is no way to break or crack an Android device password. This is because, Android is a very secure operation system, protecting your data in the event of a lost or stolen device. However, there are a number of methods you can use to unlock your AMPE tablet. One of the most common ways is using the Google account associated with the device to unlock it. Though, to use this method you must be connected to the Internet.
