If you can't remember your password the only way to reset it is to reset your phone back to factory settings.

How to locate or change forgotten password using Google's Android Device...


This may be well known but it was a complete surprise to me. Using Google's device manager, you can actually locate your Nexus to within 20 - 30 metres.
Ring it in the event of misplacing it. Erase ALL data and lock it, and should you have forgotten your password! Don't sweat you can change it to gain operation once again. I myself think Googles security is fantastic and is needed these days.

OK to start with go into settings on your Nexus, tap on Device Administrators. You should now see Android Device Administrators and make sure the box is ticked. Leave this box ticked always for possible future mishaps.

I imagine you already have a Google Account, if not you will have to sign up and do all that is required to obtain one. Using your laptop or PC do the following.
Sign into your Google account and proceed to your account settings. Now look for Recent Activity > Devices
and click on Devices. This then opens up a page showing you your Devices and all activity that you can check on.
Locate your Nexus in the list and click on it, you will see Find your Android devices with Android Device Manager and click on that.
For security Google may ask you to sign in again, after doing that the world opens and you will see a box with your Nexus. The top two icons are for renaming your device or locating, below that Ring, Lock and Erase. Play wisely lol.

This is for those of you that didn't know about this, like myself only an hour ago.

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

I broke my nexus 4 i have not used it for a month and I've forgotten the password. it does not give me an option to sign in with my gmail account, so how can i take password off without resetting?


That is what is called a Catch 22. You cannot remove the password unless you know the password to be allowed to remove it. See what I mean. You can reset the router by pressing the RESET button: it will erase the password and the whole configuration is put back to default. You will have to reconfigure.
The path to follow is yours to choose.

Many pattern attempts


if you have forgotten your pattern lock, just give a few more tries to continue, then a message will display, the OS will report attempts exceeded, then enter your gmail address and in the textbox for password just give value as NULL this will instantly ask for new pattern lock and you are done!

Forgot unlock pattern


I'm not sure what model or manufacturer you are referring to.
Regardless of that,
If you've forgotten the pattern you always have an option to use the password you've set before.
If nothing works the only way out is a hard reset .

I had a pattern password on my htc inspire and now it is asking for me to put in a google account password and i dont know it what do i do?


MAy be you have forgotten the pattern and you have tried multiple times with the wrong one . Now you have to retrieve your google password using a computer and type that in the phone . Hard reset is another option , but that will wipe all the data out putting phone to factory default .

Ive forgotten my password for my lockcode


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


a) Start or re-start your computer.


b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.
