How to unlock Android Device after pattern gets permanently locked?
Howdy viewers, welcome to another article “How to unlock Android Device after pattern gets permanently locked?” Well, the situation is worse than hell, as I faced it. Before going further, let me tell you about my story.
One evening, my uncle called me on my phone that his son (little kid) has permanently unlocked it and could not make calls. I asked HOW? He said that “his son was playing with the pattern thing like a game and I didn’t notice, later when I picked the phone to make some call then realized the issue”. Do you have any idea about unlocking the issue. Well, my answer was enter your Gmail address and password and follow the steps from Google. But, he told me no internet connection. OK, my reply was “I am coming”.
After 30 minutes of struggling, applied a random trick and yay it worked.
UNLOCK PATTERN after its locked permanently:
- Follow your Gmail address and Password: Once, the device locks down permanently, you will asked to enter registered Gmail address and password for your Android device. After you’re done, it will unlock your pattern by following some steps by Google. But, imagine, if you don’t have internet connection like happened with my uncle. Don’t worry, apply the second option.
- Enter PIN: Below the Gmail password, you will notice that you will be asked to enter the PIN. But, that is either or case. For example, if you cannot use the Google account then go for PIN. Before, entering PIN, please make sure that you have previously set any PIN to your device. If you do, please remember or write somewhere else like in your secret diary. But, anyway, to unlock use the PIN (if you have previously set) or use the default PIN from the Phone Company. I used 123456 to unlock my uncle’s device and maybe this code is default to all Phone Companies.
- Hard Reset: Well, if you have important files backed up in your SD card, you are safe otherwise forget those files. Because hard reset means erasing all the data from your device and start from fresh. The process to hard reset vary from mobile Companies, before staring the resetting process make sure to Google about the model number and brand.
