Connect to the PC Suite as explained above in an answer. The PC Suite for Mi devices has options to even reflash your OS on the device which will remove the password for the lock screen.

Somehow you tripped the security. Hard reset the device and set up a PIN code as a backup should this be a bug in your device.

I have forgotten the password of Xiaomi phone?

Please help me, I have no Google account and I also want my data to be safe so, please. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: I just forgot it

Xioamie has a Forgot Password reset website. Go through the steps of resetting your password again. The password will be sent to another cell phone via text so use one of your family members. Swap the SIM first if you can. You will need to turn your device off and back on again after you have completed the reset for it to sync. You may also need to enable the WiFi if it was not enabled automatically before the password situation occurred. You can do this by clicking on Open Network Connections after you click Forgot Password on your device. Wait for the device to sync and then try your new password.

Trouble unlocking my Xiaomi Redmi, staying in FastBoot mode?

It remains on FastBoot, how long should it stay on the screen.. It does not allow me to scroll down to any menu.. What am I doing wrong? I do not want to wipe any information on my phone, just unlock the password, which my phone seem to have done on its own. I never activated the password option. I have tried: Volume and power button - taken to FastBoot screen, nothing further has happened. I think it was caused by: Not sure what the reason is for the delay in getting to the menu option

On wiping data will my 64 GB internal storage be also wiped clean?

What about my contacts, images, messages, etc.? Are the settings only resetting to the original?

Everything gets wiped away. If you regularly synced your Google Account then items like Contacts, Images, and Videos may be recovered but messages and files will be deleted unless they were saved via Google Drive or another cloud. You could try to remove the SD card and backup that data on your PC, however, most data still saves in internal memory and not on the SD card.

I am getting fastboot image instead of the page described, why?

I am not entering in the content of the page as described in this post, as I press the volume and the power button a fastboot image is coming but after that, I am not getting anything!

Try other combinations such as hitting the Power button quickly when the Android Man appears. Search for your device and "hard reset" on YouTube to see how others have performed a factory reset for your specific device.
