You will need to provide the email (Gmail) and password you used to sync your Google Play store with. However, you have to be connected via data connection or WiFi. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset. Unfortunately, this will delete all apps and data on your phone. Do the following to do a Factory Reset:

How do I unlock my Android Device?

Well, I locked my Tablet and I can't unlock it. I know the "forgot password" tool is supposed to be on the lockscreen but on my Tablet, there is nothing because its Android 2.2 (I know, ancient). I have no idea what to do and it's stressing me because I don't want to have to reset the factory defaults and lose all my data

You cannot reset the password because you are not connected to the internet. The only thing you can do to be able to use the Tablet is by doing a Factory Reset. Do the following:

  • turn off your Tablet
  • press and hold the following:

power button

volume up/down or both

home button (if any)

or look for a reset button/hole (http://screencast.com/t/fzfGvTOTJlV)

  • release buttons when you see the logo
  • you will now be in the recovery menu
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete all user data
  • choose reboot now

The device asks for a recovery pass-code to recover else it says it will restore the device to it's factory settings which I don't want it to. I have important data on the phone and I don't want to lose it. Is there any way to unlock my phone?

Can service center technicians bypass the lock screen and access the phone directly?

I have given my Xiaomi mi5 for servicing. It wasn't turning on as it had a power button problem. Technician said spare part not available keeping it in inventory, will take few days. Late in the night, I had noticed that the phone had shown up in my Google account security devices as active, that too after office hours. My phone has a fingerprint as well as a pin lock. How is that possible? I know that data on the phone disk can be accessed using 3rd party tools but without actually logging into my account on the phone but if they log into my account bypassing the lock then they will have access to all the cloud based data which is really scary as they won't even require my credentials for any of my accounts and can download any or all information they want to the phone and to an external device.
