    Re: Forgotten Pattern Security Lock key

    Now a days, the pattern lock is being used by almost all users. The security it provides is good. But, what if we forgot the pattern? No need to be if you forgot the pattern. What all you have to do is, when you forgot the pattern, just switch off your phone and then switch on and access your phone immediately. Because, after you switch on your phone, the pattern lock takes few seconds to get into charge. In that few seconds, before it get into charge, you can access your phone and use it as before. Then change the lock immediately to the pattern you are able to remember. But best thing is not to forget the pattern. I mean, keep the pattern like which is very easy to you to remember. That's it:-)

    if you try it work for more times to unlock then after sometimes it will deny the trial and then ask for gmail account id and password .so you can access from gmail.if you go for a servicing centre he will unlock it for you.

    Hello

    Well you can restore it by following these steps:

    First enter wrong patterns to lock your device-->>then tap on forgot pattern option that will appear on your menu-->>then it will ask you to enter the gmail id and password.

    enter it and then you can reset your pattern. Follow the same steps if you forget it again.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    There are two ways you can unlock the phone that is by turning the phone Off and turn On the phone there you will be able to access the phone as the phone will not be locked immediately so that you can change the Lock screen settings by opening the "Settings" menu from the application drawer and from there you will be able to use the option as to change the option that it can be used to change the Lock screen pattern of the phone so that you can use the phone otherwise.
    If you enter the password wrong a lot of times then you will be able to change the pattern by using your E-mail Id that is you will get an option as to change the pattern by the option as "Forgot Password" follow that so that you will be able to change the pattern.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hi Friend,
    Do not Worry, Just Be relax.
    You didn't mentioned the mobile for which you forgot pattern. If it is Android mobile try the below steps.

    - Enter wrong pattern 5 times wait for 30 seconds to enter correct pattern.
    - Select Forgot pattern and enter your Gmail user name and password.
    - Make sure you use the same account that was used to activate the phone and double check the password by logging in to that Google account in a browser.
    - If you don't have access to the original Gmail account, You will need to do hard reset and loose your settings and apps on the phone.
    - The data on the memory card will not be wiped though.

    Thank you!

    If your attempts for entering password is over. Then you will see an option 'Forgot Password' click on that and you will lead to a login page with your playstore account which will lead to an unlock your phone.(But You need to connect to the internet)

    If You are not connect
    ed 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
