    Android tablet got password locked automatically

    My brother had sent me an Android tablet recently. I had worked on it and got some apps like Google app installed on it. When I woke up next day, I found the tab password locked. I havenít set any password on it but it keeps asking for one when I try to get it opened. How can I get my tab opened now?

    Re: Android tablet got password locked automatically

    Your problem is very strange and I have not heard of anything like that happen before. The only possibility is that your device has been used by someone before you had bought it or something like that. You could try resetting your tablet or it would be better to get a factory reset done. Hold the volume and power button down together and do the factory reset and go for a complete data wipe. If you find this not working turn off the tablet completely and do the above procedure as soon as the screen stars coming up. While doing the reset ensure that you have switched off the device. If you can’t get it right contact the company and turn it in.
