    How to unlock an android mobile after forgetting the unlock pattern?

    I was using a pattern lock in my android mobile and it was working fine as well. Unfortunately, i can't remember that pattern now. I have already tried many patterns but still failed to unlock the device. Is there any way to unlock it now?

    Hello friend,


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

    1.Firstly give the wrong password for your device for more than 5 times in less then 30 seconds.

    2.Now you will get a new menu and in that you will find the option of 'Forgot Password' tab.

    3.After going for that option you will be asked for the Gmail ID & password.

    4.Now go for the option of giving it the required Gmail details and then it will take you to the screen to set a new password to your device.

    5.By using that password you can unlock your device for sure...

    6.But make sure that this process is possible only when you have internet connection to be enabled in your device.If your internet connection is disabled and your device is locked then this process wont work.

    7.Then you will need to go for the hard reset of your device.

    By following the above mentioned steps your problem will get solved for sure...

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

    You can do a simple task for recovering the password if you already have a google account.

    Click on 'Forgot Password' and you have to login with your google username and password.
    (You need to enter the user name and password by which you are logging in to the playstore)

    For this unlocking, you have to be connected to the internet via WiFi or Mobile Data.

    Follow the steps and your phone will be unlocked and you could set a new password......

    If You are not connected to the internet while you locks up, 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
