A common issue Android users face is being locked out of their device because of too many pattern attempts. It's sometimes possible to enter Google account information to unlock the phone or Tablet, but this requires an active network connection, making it somewhat an unlikely prospect.

If you're not able to sign in using a Google account, you'll need to reset your device to factory default settings. You can find a guide for how to do so here: Perform a factory reset on Android Device.

My uncle's Samsung Galaxy keeps asking for PIN?

Apparently he was using the device, trying to install a software which was continually blocked by his antivirus (kaspersky) and he just discovered that the device had locked him out. He had been using the device without any PIN

My Samsung Galaxy Tab is locked, I forgot my Password that I recently put on. How can I reset with my email?

Hello, My Samsung Galaxy Tab is locked because I forgot a password I recently added on it. It is attached to my Google account, and online it seems like there is a way to reset the password using Google, but for some reason there is no option to "forgot password" or reset. I would like to try figuring out a way to unlock it before having to do a hard reset and lose all my data. Let me know if you have any solutions!

My Samsung S2 is locked. Unfortunately the keyboard was changed to regional language and on screen the Samsung keyboard is not coming and tablet is locked?

Last night, I changed my Samsung keyboard to regional language to do some writing. Forgot to change again to Samsung keyboard. This morning I tried with my fingerprint but not recognized and asking for backup password, and because the keyboard language is different it did not recognize and now locked permanently.. I have tried: Tried to reset the tablet and to change language but it is not allowing me to do so. I think it was caused by: Different keyboard and wrong place of finger on sensor
