    sounds like it could be a spyware/phishing program. What happens if you enter a password? Are you using an effective antivirus program?

Android device manager


Just enter your password incorrectly five times. Then you will see a new button pop up on the bottom of your screen that says "Forgot Passcode" or something like that. Then you'll be able to enter your Google account info and you'll be able to create a new passcode.

Recover a Hijacked Hotmail Account
Hotmail is one of the older free Web-based email services.
Unfortunately, its age and its popularity can make it a target for hackers and other online troublemakers.
If your Hotmail account is hijacked, the hacker may change your password to keep you from logging back in to the account.
Fortunately, Microsoft gives users the opportunity to prove that a hijacked account is really theirs so that changed passwords and stolen accounts can be recovered by their rightful owners.
Attempt to log in to your Hotmail account.
If you receive a message saying that your username or password is incorrect, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link under the password field.
A page will load giving you three options for resetting your password.
Click the "I Think Someone Else Is Using My Windows Live ID" option on the password reset page. Click the "Reset Your Password" link in the instructions that appear.
Enter your Hotmail account address in the "Windows Live ID" field and type the characters that appear in the captcha image in the "Characters" field.
Click "Next" to continue the password reset process.
Select an option for resetting your password when prompted.
If you have a secondary email account included with your Hotmail account, clicking "Email Me a Reset Link" will send a link to that account which lets you reset your password.
Clicking "Security Question" prompts you with the security question you set up previously, allowing you to reset your password after answering correctly.
If neither of these options work for you, click "Customer Support" to contact Hotmail customer support and have your password reset.
Click "Next" after selecting an option.
Enter a new password when you receive access to the password reset screen.
Hotmail recommends that you create a strong password with a combination of letters, numbers, symbols and varying capitalization to make it more difficult for would-be hijackers to guess it.
Run a thorough antivirus and spyware search on your computer to make sure that you don't have a keylogger or other password-theft software installed on your PC
Such software could allow a hacker to gain access to your account again after the password has been reset.

Samsung password reset


Im assuming its a samsung phone
Samsung cell phones come with many security features.
In addition to the common feature of preventing calls after a period of inactivity, some Samsung phones also allow you to prevent others' use of your phone's SIM chip and access to your files.
One password unlocks the various locks, except for two other passwords used for the SIM chip. The syntax of the menu items to click to reset a password differ somewhat between Samsung models but you can figure out roughly how to apply instructions for one phone to another.

1
Lock the phone from making calls by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings" (or "More" and then "Security"), and "Phone Lock" or "Device Lock."
Change the password by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Change Password." Then enter a new password.

2
Set the phone to work only with the current SIM chip by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "SIM Lock."
Enter a new password when prompted.

3
Prevent unauthorized use of your SIM card by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "PIN Lock." Type a new PIN when prompted.
4
Prohibit access to your files, messages and contact list by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Privacy Lock."
Enter the password from Step 1 when prompted to unlock access.
Reset the file lock/messages/contact password by resetting the phone lock password, as in
Step 1

My hotmail email is block how to unblock


Microsoft will sometimes block your Windows Live Hotmail account if the company suspects you have a compromised or hacked account or if you have incorrectly entered your password multiple times when logging in. If Microsoft has blocked your Hotmail account, you can unblock your account by resetting your password.

1.Open a Web browser, and navigate to account.live.com/password/reset.
2.Enter your Windows Live ID and the security verification code and click the "Next" button.
3.Select the "Security Question" option.
4.Answer the security question you created when you signed up for your Hotmail account.
5.Enter and confirm the new password you want to use to access your Hotmail account and click the "Continue" button.
6.Go to the Hotmail homepage.
7.Enter your Windows Live Hotmail address and password and click the "Sign In" button to open your Hotmail account. You have now unblocked your Hotmail account.

I hope the step helps you. Thanks.

  • Remember passwords for sites: Firefox can securely save passwords you enter in web forms to make it easier to log on to websites. Clear this checkbox to prevent Firefox from remembering your passwords.
    • Even with this optionpreference checked, however, you'll still be asked whether to save passwords for a site when you first visit it. If you select Never for This Site, that site will be added to an exceptions list. To access that list or to remove sites from it, click the Exceptions... button.
  • Use a master password: Firefox can protect sensitive information such as saved passwords and certificates by encrypting them using a master password. If you create a master password, each time you start Firefox, it will ask you to enter the password the first time it needs to access a certificate or stored password. You can set, change, or remove the master password by checking or unchecking this optionpreference or by clicking the Change Master Password... button. If a master password is already set, you will need to enter it in order to change or remove the master password.

  • I leave an encrypted page for one that isn't encrypted: With this optionpreference enabled, Firefox will warn you every time you move from an encrypted page to an unencrypted page either by selecting a link on the page, selecting a bookmark or typing a new address into the location bar.
  • I submit information that's not encrypted: When this optionpreference is enabled, Firefox will warn you when you submit data via a form that's not encrypted.

If an encrypted page contains unencrypted data, you should verify the identity of the page you're viewing prior to entering sensitive data.
