Hello all. For you who have an android phone, it is so important to secure the data that you have on the phone. It’s not only about the security of your applications but also the security of personal data that you have on your Google Account. Therefore, android also provides us many security options such as lock screen feature.
There are many lock screen styles, there are swipe, face unlock, password. Some of us might use the pattern as the lock screen option. But how if we forget the pattern? Today, we will discuss how to fix the locked pattern screen on your android.
1) Draw it carelessly to go to menu “Forgot password”
To solve the forgot password, there are many things that you can do. For example you can draw it carelessly until 5 times then android will make you to wait about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, you will be notified to do two options; “Next” and “Try Again”.
Please choose “Next” to go to menu “Fogot password”. After you tap the option “Next”, you will get 2 options again; “Answer question” and “Enter Google account detail”.
The first option, “Answer the question” is the option for the user to choose some security question from Google. In case if you give a correct answer for the question, the phone will be unlocked, but if you can’t, you still have the second option; “Enter Google account detail”.
On the menu “Enter Google account detail”, you will be notified to enter your Google account, and if you are successful to fill down all required account detail (such as password etc) you will be given the option to change your new pattern and the phone will be unlocked with that new pattern password.
2) Called by others, go to home screen and choose “Setting” menu
You also can unlock the screen which is protected by pattern password by this trick; ask your friend to call your android phone, please accept the call but don’t immediately close the call. When you accept the call, the phone is in unlock condition.
Tap “Home” menu, please choose “Settings”, and please choose “None” for the password option (it means you will have no password at all on your android screen). After that, you go back to home menu and close the call. Now, you can unlock your phone with no password and your password has been unlocked. Please re-arrange the password again after you finish the steps.
