It’s not that common to forget password or pattern lock on Android devices. At least, this never happened to me. But if in case you forgot pin/password or pattern lock of your Android device, there’s still good chances that you can unlock it. Now there are several methods that you can use but in this guide i will discuss the 3 best and the common ways to unlock any locked Android device. But there are some conditions and limitations.
How to Bypass Android Pattern, Pin or Password Lock
Method 1: Using Android Device Manager
This is the most common method used. This enables you to change “Lock password” of your Android device. But, as i said earlier, there are some conditions and limitations to it. You can do so only if you are able to login to the Gmail account you used to signup or sign in to Play Store in your Android device, i.e. Google account associated with your Android. If you remember your login credentials, you can unlock your Android device.
Once logged in successfully, you will see your Android device name on the screen with options to either “Ring” or “Lock & Erase” your Android device. Click on “Lock & Erase Button” and then click on Lock button.
A form will appear, enter the new password and click on “Lock” button.
That’s it, most probably, your device will be unlocked using new password.
However, in some cases, like in pattern lock, it may still asks for pattern to unlock device and might not unlock your Android completely. If it occurs, i recommend you to follow any of the method listed below.
