Unlock forgottten password/pattern lock of Android Tablet

nexus pattern lock

There are many ways you can get your Tablet PC (or any android device) unlocked, once locked somehow. Follow this post which sums all the possible scenarios on locked Tablet PCs and also gives the best solutions which will unlock your tab.

Solution 1: Forgotten your password/pattern unlock of your Android Tablet, or the face unlock feature refuses to work

Solution:  Click on “forgot password?” and it’ll take you to a new screen where you have to put your Google account user name and password. The same user name and password against which the device is registered at Google Play store.

Tablet PC Google ID and password

NOTE: Make sure you are either connected to mobile network or Wi-Fi .

Solution 2: Forgotten the Google account password

Solution: If somehow you don’t remember your Google account credentials, go to www.google.com/accounts/recovery to reset the password of your Google account. Reset the password here and use the new one on your device.

Solution 3: Hard/Factory reset your device

android system recovery menu

Hard reset menu

Solution: If in case you don’t have mobile data or Wi-Fi switched on, unfortunately you cannot access your device until you perform a full factory reset of the device. Take out the SD card so that all on the data on the memory card should be intact. This factory reset (also called ‘hard reset‘ since you are forcefully wiping all the data off your device) formats  internal memory and also the extended memory, if you keep it inside the device itself.

To perform a hard reset, follow these steps:

For devices with physical home button:-

 1. Press the power button and the home button together or Power button and Volume button together for a while, long enough till the Android boot mode screen appears. Press home button to reach the options under boot mode. Navigate through the options using volume key and select “Wipe Data Factory Reset“option using shortcut menu button. Again navigate to the option “delete- all user data” and select it using shortcut menu button. (Make sure memory card is not inside; otherwise the data on it will be lost). After the data is deleted, a message saying “Data Wipe Complete” appears.  Press the shortcut menu button to reboot the tablet again. Now, your tablet is as fresh as a new tablet

With NO physical HOME button:-

2. In case your device does not have a physical home button, press the power button and both the volume keys together for few seconds.

3. Press gently the “reset pin-hole” present generally on a side of Tablet. Use a clip-pin or similarly fine thing to gently push inside to reset your device to factory settings.

NOTE: Above mention steps are general method that work with most of the tablet although few of the tablet has different hard reset method.  See the differnt Hard reset/factory wipe methods for Tablet PC .

Solution 4 : Unlock through Command line prompt

Solution: Unlock the tablet using Android developer tool. This tool is used for the development of Android OS and Android app. Check out the above link to get the command and tool downloading link.

Solution 5 :Tablet not accepting Google id and password, but it is actually correct.

Solution: In this case, use another tablet or laptop or PC and go to https://accounts.google.com/IssuedAuthSubTokens. Check whether your email account is registered with the Google 2-Step Verification Method. If not, then register it (http://www.google.com/landing/2step/).

In application specific password page, the first point is “Android Phone” (In our case, it’s the Android Tablet) which is shown to have “Full Account Access“. Click “Revoke Access” button and a message saying that the account access has been successfully revoked, will appear.

Next go to “Application Specific- Passwords” message. In the bottom of page, there will be an option “Generate new application-specific password“. There, put any name and click on “Generate Password” button.  A 16 digit password will be generated (Keep this password handy.)

Now in your tablet, keep giving the wrong pattern voluntarily till the screen with “forgot Password?” option appears.

Click on the “Forgot password?” option. Enter your Gmail ID with which your account is registered and the password (the 16 digit password that you just now generated). Sign in and “Unlock selection” appears. Choose the type of password you want to give. Here I choose to use pattern password again. Draw the new pattern two times.

Solution 6: Re-Install Android OS on your tablet 

Solution: In this case Android has been re-installed on your tablet pc. This can be done either through a bootable memory stick or by connecting the tab to the computer and using a different software.   

Above mention methods will not work with Chinese tablet. The only way you can get the Chinese tab unlocked is through Flashing or Android re-installation

See this post to know more.

Solution 7: Unlock the tablet using Android Multi Tool software

Using this software you can unlock in a single click. Download it from here. See the instructions to use this software in following video or in the post here.

    Hi, I got a Samsung Galaxy tab 3 neo and the problem I am facing is that when I open the tab, a preset app launches and it does not allow me to exit it or do anything else other than use the app. Actually the tab is meant for that purpose only but I want to use the whole tab not just that one particular app. it has a place to enter the admin code but I don’t kknow it. I want to know how I can crack the code.

    • http://www.mytabletguru.com/ Tablet Guru

      Try to root your tab, using http://vrootdownload.org.
      But this void the warranty and the app provided by your company might stop working.

      • JK4304

        Some improvement is that I found out that I reached the touchwiz launcher and found a ‘secure launcher’ In the app drawer and I think that is preventing me from changing or opening ‘settings’.

        • JK4304

          And I forgot to mention that I want the app provided to me. I tried uninstalling the launcher from the drawer but that to doesn’t work.

          • JK4304

            And I want to know how to backup the tab through custom recovery

    Hello TG.
    I have a “Sero 7 Lite” With no home button but power, volume buttons and reset pin hole. When I tried the buttons sequence I can only get to the Android Icon laying with an red exclamation symbol over it.
    I will appreciate your help.

      I found a way. Just press volume up + power at the same time until the green android with the red exclamation symbol appears. After that, press the same buttons intermittently until the recovery menu appears.

  • amber wolfe

    ok my little brother got a hold of my parents android tablet, and we are trying to get it unlocked from the screen that asks for the google email account and password. My little brother can’t remember his password and we have tried everything. We have gotten to the part where you hold the volume and the power button down at the same time. We get the little android bot pops up with the gears rotating on his stomach and then a bar flashes really fast across the bottom of the screen. We have tried the part where we just press the reset button and we have also held the button down for 18 seconds but it hasn’t made a difference. Can anyone help us with this problem. It would be really appreciated. Thank you.

  • Farah

    I have a 7 inch Merlin android 4 tablet PC. No matter what I do I can not access the recovery screen. The manufacturer said I should hold down the Volume + and – buttons and the power button to get to the recovery screen but it will not work. There is no request for a google account password either. You just get 5 tries after which you have to wait 30 seconds and can try again. Since I didn’t set the password, I have no idea what to do.

      Follow step 3.
      Check https://accounts.google.com/IssuedAuthSubTokens this link on every Google account you have got.
      The registered Google account will show your tablet as the registered device.
      It may be shown up as “Android Phone” in the list.

  • Joy

    I gave my grandaughter a 9″ android tablet for Christmas. It wasn’t working properly for her so I took it back and replaced it. Without asking her the pattern security, I tried a few myself until I got locked out for too many pattern attempts. Her username, hotmail address and password won’t work for me. Tablet says to visit google.com/accounts/recovery which I have done but am getting nowhere at all. Her hotmail address and my gmail address are in no way attached. She doesn’t have a gmail just her hotmail account.
    - What happened. I am so stuck and frustrated not to mention I have this lovely tablet here that I can’t use at all because I’m locked out!

    - What you think the correct behavior should be.

    CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME UNLOCK THIS TABLET. I REALLY WANT TO USE IT…PLEASE, PLEASE (*_*) (*_*). THANK-YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!

    Hi There,

    I’ve got an android 4.0 tablet that my son locked due too many incorrect pattern attempts.. The stupid thing is that my nephew was the one who setup the google play store login and pin and he can’t remember the password..

    So I have no idea how to unlock it.. Would prefer to try fix it ourselves before taking it to the shops.. Have been quote $180 – $200+ for someone just to unlock it…please help..

    • Tablet Guru

      Hi Aere,
      You are in some situation, but don’t worry. Go for the factory reset or the ‘hard reset’ as many will like it to say. All you got to do is look for the power button and the physical home button. In case there is no physical home button in your device, am sure volume buttons will do. Now all it takes is pressing your device’s power button and home button together for 15 secs. Again if physical home button is absent then use the combination of Power button and Volume keys and perform the same process.

      CAUTION: this Factory/Hard setting wipes out the internal as well external memory. So, it is advisable to remove your external memory card and save its data, before you carry out hard reset.

      Okay then, let us know if it resolved your issue. Further if the tablet is still locked, contact us with your tablet model details. We will be happy to help with our best ability.

        • Tablet Guru

          Hey, can you find a reset pin-hole in your tablet? If it’s there, press it. If an option for language selection appears, carefully select English. I reckon it shall resolve your problem.
