If you accidentally locked yourself out of your smartphone, there’s no cause for alarm. You can bypass the lock on your phone; it’s just a matter of knowing what tools to employ. There are several ways to bypass Android Lock Screen. Here are some of them you can use:
- Android Device Manager: this is the simplest way to bypass Android lock screen. as long as you are logged in to your Google account on your phone, all you need to do is go to the android Device manager on your PC. Select the device you need to unlock, then tap Lock. This will override the lock on your phone and locks your phone with a new code. You can use this code to unlock your phone.
- If you set a Smart Lock on your device, then you don’t need to worry if you get locked out. All you need to do is bring your device to the secure location you set up, or the recognized device. It will unlock itself.
- Some smartphone makers put their security software on a separate device. A good example is Samsung’s Find My Mobile. You have to set this up beforehand for it to work for you.
- if you use a device running Android 4.4 Kitkat or below, all you need to do to reset your password is enter the wrong code five times. This brings up a Too Many Attempts page, where you will be prompted to enter the email address and password associated to your Google account.
- If all these options fail, you can do a factory reset of your device. This will delete all the data on your phone, but at least it will get the device to open. This should only be used as a last resort.
