    I have heard that if you unplug the CPU from the motherboard for several hours, the passcodes disappear. Let me know if it works.

My IPad has been hacked into I need to. Know how to change my password.


With the push of a button and pull of a slider, you can quickly access all of your iPad's contents, including any sensitive personal data that you've stored within it.

Such easy and unrestricted accessibility to your device could be dangerous in the hands of a stranger, which is why you enable a password to block its use by anyone but you.

If you believe that your password's confidentiality has been compromised, don't fret. You can change it using your iPad's Passcode Lock feature.

Tap "Settings" on the home screen.
Tap "General" on the left sidebar.


Tap "Passcode Lock" on the main pane to the right.
Type your current four-digit passcode in the "Enter Passcode" screen that appears.


Tap "Change Passcode." Type your current four-digit passcode again in the first "Change Passcode" screen that appears.


Enter a new four-digit passcode in the second "Change Passcode" screen.
Retype your new four-digit passcode in the third "Change Passcode" screen.

This will simultaneously verify and activate your new passcode.

Put in wrong password on the phone too many times, now i cant log in to my google acct on it either, its just stuck at the same spot


What Brand and Type of phone ??..
Phone password or google account password ??..
Im thinking iphone ?
Although a passcode limits your iPhone to authorized use only, protecting your vital personal information, if you forget it, you can't use your phone until you enter the correct code or revert your phone to the default factory status.
Apple provides ways to resolve a forgotten passcode problem and improve the iPhone's security.

Wrong Passcode

When you enable iPhone passcode security, the phone requires you to enter the code to display the home screen.
By default, when this protection feature is enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the passcode to turn on or restart the iPhone, wake it or unlock the screen.
When you enter the wrong passcode, the "Wrong Passcode try again" message appears onscreen.
If you enter the incorrect code too many times, the iPhone will lock automatically and display the "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute" message.
This disabling security feature is designed to protect it from unauthorized tampering.
If you keep entering the incorrect code, the iPhone will be disabled for a longer time.

Restoring iPhone
If you don't remember your passcode, unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve it.
Apple says that the only way to solve passcode problems is to restore the iPhone with iTunes.
Before restoring the phone, downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes will improve connection and decrease the chances of errors.
Unfortunately, restoring the iPhone erases saved content and clears custom settings, so create a backup copy of your files with iTunes before proceeding.
From there, you can restore your iPhone by clicking the "Restore" button on the device's "Summary" tab in iTunes.
When the process completes, you can change the passcode settings.



Changing Passcode Settings
iPhone allows you to not only create a new passcode, but specify the amount of time it should take before the screen locks after inactivity.
You can also specify whether you want to use a simple four-digit passcode or a longer one that can include letters and numbers.
Tapping the "Settings" icon on the home screen will bring up the phone's settings.
From there, tapping "General" and then tapping "Passcode Lock" will bring up the "Passcode Lock" customization screen.
Select the settings you want to use to protect your iPhone. The changes will take effect immediately or when the iPhone turns off.

Tips

After restoring your iPhone, create a passcode you'll remember easily.
While creating a longer passcode can increase the security on your phone, you can forget it easily if you don't write it down and store it in a safe place.
gmail password reset
Open the Web browser on your phone and navigate to gmail.com.
Tap "Can't access your account" located under the "Sign in" button.
Select "I forgot my password" and then click "Reset your password here."
Type your email into the "Email" text box and then type the random captcha into the captcha text box.
An email with your new Gmail password will be sent to your alternate Gmail address.
Follow the directions in the email to reset your password.
Type the new Gmail password into the loin screen on your Droid to unlock the account.

I have my Ipad apple 10 i forgot my passcode..how can i a open it?


If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212

I locked myself out of gateway laptop-the HDD passcode. how to unlock forgotten code


There are two ways to do this. First you can call Gateway support and they can provide you with a master passcode for your system. Second option is to open up your laptop and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes and plug it back in to reset the passcode. To be sure you can short the two pins that connect it to the motherboard with a paperclip.

Need help logging into computer without passcode


If this is WindowsXP, reboot the computer in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. You will be presented with different "modes" to start windows in. Choose 'Safe Mode". Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes). You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrator's account and will be able to reset the lost password. Just click the administrator user account or any account, and then click Reset Password.
