Here is how you factory reset your phone:

  1. Turn the power off. If your HTC Wildfire is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
  2. Hold the Volume Down button
  3. Press and release the Power button
  4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
  5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
  6. Press and release the Power button
  7. Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO
(If you selected YES, all datalocked out, no password reset available, no factor - icon1.png including third-party applications will be deleted from the HTC Wildfire. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.)

If you just need temp access and you can log into the google account associated with phone. Then you can: (With phone on) go to play.google.com from a pc. log in. and search for lock screen bypass. select your device and choose install. give it a few minutes to complete. reboot phone and wait for a bit and you will see the screen lock bypass app show up. click add admin account. sometimes it will throw you back to lock. just reboot and do it again. once you are at screen lock bypass app after adding admin account press BACK (pressing home will usually result in lock screen). And when you first boot phone its good to wait at least 2 - 3 minutes before pressing back to home screen. (I see better result and less lockscreen hiccups.) once you are finished you can reboot phone again and when bypass pops up you can uninstall from there. While in backup your data and do a factory data reset afterwords to get back into your phone properly. Good Luck

My lock screen on galaxy 5 won't come on. It goes straight to home screen. Why is it doing that? It was fine 2 days ago. How can I get it back?


Three Reasons Why Screen Lock is Gone
1. Screen Lock has been deactivated (Instructions how to activate are at bottom.)
2. Android Screen Security File may have been deleted, and screen lock option is no longer on your devise.(A Factory Reset will restore original Android files)
3. Malfunction Somewhere in Samsung Phone. (A Factory Reset might work, but not guaranteed)
(How to Factory Reset phone at bottom.)

How to ativate Screen Lock and Security settings

1. Press the apps icon, it usually at the bottom of screen.
2. Find Settings and press that button to open settings menu.
4. Scroll down the menu to Lock Screen and Security, press that to open options menu.
5. The first option at top is Screen Lock Type.Press and Open.
6. You will have 3 lock types to choose from. Swipe Lock, Passcode Lock, Password Lock
(advise, do not forget password, only a hard phone reset, or an apk lockout file will get you back in)

If activating screen lock through settings did not work, or if option is not available, you can try to reset phone to the way it was when you bought it.

There is a couple things you should know.
1. contacts, photos, videos, downloaded apps, games, and everything not on the phone when it was first bought, or when you first got the phone will be erased.
2. You can back up contacts, photos, videos, in settings menu, scroll down to Backup and Reset. Or save to an sd card, and remove sd card before applying reset option
3. If you have an account (google or android email) associated with your phone, you will need email address, (example@any.com) and password to get back in phone after phone resets and turns on.) Dont remember password, Please create a new password now before continuing to reset to manufacture settings.

Reset Phone to Manufacture Settings
1. Remove SD Card, or its saved files will be erased.
2. Open apps, Open Settings Menu, Scroll Down to Backup and Reset.
3. Scroll down to bottom of page to Factory Data Reset.
4. Follow instructions to reset phone.

When your phone comes back on, Swipe Screen Unlock should be active at phone turn on, if screen lock is not showing try again to turn on in security settings.
If still does not work,
I am sorry, Your phone has permanantly malfunctioned. You can try your phone store, or a phone repair shop.

When screen opens it suddenly starts asking for a password. I have never used a password, don't have one and cannot unlock my Kindle Fire HD


Give enter to password, in blank, withoul inputting anything. Maybe it accepts it as password.
The other possiblity is that you've been pranked and someone defined a password

Here you have a tutorial for Password Remove:

How to bypass lock screen on iphone 4s


No way to bypass, if you don't have the password of the Apple ID partially displayed on the lock screen. You even can't put it in factory reset, without that code.
Sorry, but it is the best lock protection available now.

Locked r30 diplays locked symbol can't do a thing


Does this laptop belong to you or you purchased it? If so you need to contact that person for the password or ask for a refund.

This ThinkPad laptop has a Power on Password. This password is enabled to prevent unauthorized access to this laptop.
This password is configured from the BIOS and is stored on an EEPROM chip (ATMEL 24RF08) and removing the BIOS battery to reset the BIOS to the factory defaults will not remove this password.

There are no backdoor passwords available. IBM state the fix is a replacement motherboard.
