Unlock Android Phone if you Forgot PIN Password or Screen Lock

The Google Android operating system offers ways to protect your data. Setting up the mobile password or the screen lock is good but what happens if you forget the password or the PIN model that we have developed.

There are two methods by which you can bypass the locked instances on your mobile phones.

Method 1 – Android OS General Solution

Google Android has one good feature by which when you want to retrieve your PIN, password or unlock model you have 5 attempts which is the maximum limit set to reset your password. After five attempts you will be asked to reset your password if your setting is valid during the process of password restoration, you will be asked to set a new password or the PIN.

When you forget lock pattern on your phone then you need to hard reset your device.

Method 2 – Screen Lock Bypass

The Screen Lock Bypass Android app is an application which allows users to unlock the lock patterns or PIN wherein the devices doesn’t provide option to reset your password using the Google Account.

But the important question is how will you install this application on your phone? It can be done by login into the Android Market on your PC or laptop and installing this app by transferring using the USB cable and this application will work to remove or reset your PIN/pattern which is a temporary lock to your device. This application will bypass the locked screen all the time when you reboot your device and thereby it will allow users to take the backup of the data present.

Screen Lock Bypass

This application will work for most of the Android based phones and Screen Lock Bypass can be easily downloaded at Android Apps Labs.


  1. i have a samsung galaxy s2 that i used before i got the iphone i use now, i wanted to save the pictures from the android to my computer but when i connected it, it didn’t show up under “devices” so i couldn’t go through the phone files and downoad my pictures. i can’t remember the pin anymore, i’ve been going at it for over an hour trying to remember any possible pin and nothing’s working. i’ve made 65 attempts and there’s no “forgot password” button, only the number pad and an emergency call button. i really want to get those pictures off my old phone, but since it’s not activated and i can’t remember the pin, i’m not sure how to. help????

  7. My boyfriend of 10 years has tragically passed away. He has pictures from our last night on his phone. When I tried to unlock it, I couldn’t remember his pattern. (it was a brand new phone and he set it when I was working out of town). It is now set in a lock screen requiring a password. I have tried passwords I thought he would have used but with no luck. I never really bothered to find out his password because I really had no use for it. But now I am desperate for our pics and last text messages (sense my phone is new as well and a work phone I frequently deleted texts). I am his power of attorney so I am legally able to access all his info. Any help would be appreciated. This is a cry out from a very sad girlfriend who wants the last moments we had together. HELP!
