Samsung tablet has started asking for a Google password?

Ad

If your Samsung tablet has started asking you for your Google account password, it means you have run out of attempts for your lockscreen password. The Google account password it is asking for is the password to the account that you signed into on your tablet before you were locked out. When you enter the password into your Samsung tablet, the tablet will unlock and let you change or remove the lockscreen password so you can use your tablet again. If you don't remember your Google account password, click here to go to Google's recovery page to try to retrieve it. If you are unable to retrieve your Google account password and your tablet won't let you enter the lockscreen password again, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset on your Samsung tablet. This will wipe all of your tablet's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow-to guide. Once the Factory Reset is done, be sure to write down your lockscreen password in case you forget it in the future again. Additionally, be sure to log your Samsung tablet into a Google account to which you know the password so you can unlock your tablet as a backup plan in case you are locked out of your tablet again.

Before you hard-reset your smartphone, which you do not wish to do, perform the two steps below, which can save you in this situation.

  1. 1
    Navigate to Find My Mobile.
    Enter your Samsung credentials. Under "Protect my device", click "Unlock my screen" and "Unlock". Reboot your Tab 3 if needed to unlock it.
