smartphones especially Android and ios devices.Users usually surf internet,play
games, download and capture images and videos etc.They also sometimes keep
their phone private to others,i.e they lock their smartphones by setting pattern
or password so that others cannot see the personal data on their smartphones
or smartdevices.Many users set a unlock pattern or password but in case or
sometimes they forget that pattern or password and are not able to unlock their
smartphone so that they can use it for any purpose.They get in trouble then and
format their phone which wipes out their all data on that smartphones including
photos,applications,videos,numbers(which are saved in phone memory),audio
and other personal data.So, today here i will share with you the methods or
tricks with which you can unlock your smartphone without formatting it if you
have forgotten its pattern or password.Below are its ways explained:
By your Google Account:
google account details, i.e by logging in with your google email ID and Password.First
you need to try 5 times with many patterns and then you will be redirected to a new
screen where you have to enter your google account details (which you have earlier
setup for play store in that android device) and your phone will be unlocked,then you can
change the pattern or do as you wish.This method will only help when you have forgotten
your unlock pattern.
By factory resetting:
If you don’t remember your google account details or you have set text or numeric
password which you have forgotten then this method will help you.But this way you will
loose all your installed android applications and games on your android smartphone.So,
before factory resetting your phone take out your SIM and SD Card as a precaution.
