    Forget the password Pattern to Unlock Screen on Samsung Galaxy S II

    This is the first time I set a pattern as my password instead of a simple PIN. And because of that I forgot it. How can I break the pattern and unlock my smartphone screen? Please help me to unlock it.

    You can unlock your device by doing few steps.You need to provide the incorrect password for at least 5 times.Then wait for 30 second until a message prompt tap on Ok.
    Navigate to the bottom right part of the screen afterwards and make a single tap on ‘Forgot pattern’ option.Now provide the correct Google account details without any mistakes.Once done will be directed to the screen for setting new lock password. If you don;t need that password then tap on Cancel, otherwsie set up a new password and don't forget this time, better to write. After that, you will get the unlock screen on your phone.

    My dear friend.

    Though it is a bad thing to forget a password but don't worry about it.

    Follow the steps below:-

    --> Enter any pattern 5 times.

    --> Now a message will appear and then click ok.

    --> From the Bottom right corner select Forgot Password.

    --> Google account details will be needed for verification.

    --> Enter the necessary and correct fields.

    --> A screen will appear asking for a new password.

    --> Set another password and remember it this time.


    Thanks.

    hey friend..

    I would like to tell you that if you have forgotten your screen unlock pattern then you can simply recover it by following the steps given below :

    - First of all open the screen lock pattern window
    - Then enter any wrong pattern 5 times
    - Doing this will make the unlock pattern screen locked up for about 30 seconds
    - Also you will see the option saying forgot pattern
    - Just tap on forgot pattern option and you will be prompted to give the google account details which you used while making the screen lock pattern
    - Just enter the details of the google account and the screen will be unlocked for you.

    Thanks

    Hello friend,


    I will help you to solve your problem,don't worry just follow as i say.

    1.At the first go to the Lock screen of your device.

    2.And then give it the wrong password for more than 5 times in less then 30 seconds.

    3.After that it will take you to the screen in which it asks you for the Gmail ID and password of your device.

    4.And giving the right details it will take you to the screen to set a new password to it.

    5.Now once you have set the password you can unlock your device using that password.

    6.Make sure that you have enabled the internet connection of your device.So that this process can accomplish successfully.Otherwise you will need to go for the Hard reset of your device.

    Hope it is helpful to you...

    All the best............................

    If You are not connected to the internet or cannot unlock with your playstore account , you need to perform a hardware reset.
    But this will clear all your internal phone and user data and applications.(If you have done any Backups then you could Restore them later)
    Before performing Hardware Reset, it is recommended to remove the Memory Card.

    Turn on Your Android device and perform any of the below reset method:

    >> Press and Hold the Power button and the Home Button together Or Power Button and Volume Buttons Together for a while until the format screen appears.

    >> If Your phone do not have a physical Home Button, Then Press and Hold Power Button and Both Volume Buttons Together.

    >> For Some Tablets there is a Reset Hole Button. Using a pin insert through the hole and press and hold the button for few seconds.

    Thank You
