What do I do if i got get my password o my tablet?


There are two ways to unlock your Tablet so that you can gain access to your Tablet. The first way you can unlock the device will be to enter your pattern/password that you placed on the Tablet. The second option will be for you to enter your Gmail information so that you can gain access to your Tablet without losing all of your information.
If you have forgotten your password you will still be able to gain access to your device by using your Gmail information to log in after you have entered your password wrong multiple times. If you have forgotten your Gmail information you could visit Gmail in order for you to get your log in information for your account.

I just bought a ouku tablet from a yarf sale, it has a lock screen swipe pattern, and i don't know what it is, any way to help me unlock so i can set up service and use it?


Read it on a forum:
You need to recover it first the Lost Password Via Recovery email of your android device. On the locked Screen Tap the Forgot PIN or Forgot pattern. Then enter the email address that was registered on your Device then Enter also the correct password. After that, use a PC to log on to the Gmail account and check for the Email Recovery from your android device.

You do not say what type of password was set and if you have forgotten it or just want to reset from a known password..
If you just want to change your gmail login password
- Go to google.com/accounts on the tablet browser
- Sign in
- "Change Password"
- Go back to the Home Screen on the tablet
- Open the GMail app, clicked on Menu, then Refresh -- you will get a sync error
- Wait for a notification to re-enter your password (a triangle with an exclamation point in the tablet notificaiton bar and/or something in the gmail screen)
- Enter the new password

This simple solution sometimes works:
Turn it off.
Turn back on.
When you get the warning triangle in the notification bar, open the notification.
You will then get a login screen.
Input your new password.

Pattern Lock- Incorrectly enter pattern 5 times (4 or more points each time) . Pop up message will appear Click Next and you will be prompted for goole a/c details or security for pattern lock.
tap forgotten pattern and on next screen enter goole account details. Then next screen allows you to choose a new screen lock option.

Locked with PIN or password _Try Screenlock bypass pro from play store.
The only other solution is a hard reset which is only as a last resort. You need to access Androids Recovery mode. Check your manual. Most devices it is power off then power up holding volume + and power buttons.
Once in this mode use power down button to highlight "wipedata/factory reset option, then use power button to select it.
Vol - button to to scroll and select yes delete all user data option with power button. When device reset select option to reboot now and the device will turn on unlocked but you will have lost your personal data.

Face unlock - you were asked to provide a pattern or PIN backup when you set it. Just bypass and enter PIN or pattern.
Good Luck
