I have entered a wrong password five times – now if I click on Forgot Password I can enter a Google account with password, then it will unlock the screen.

How can I disable or hide that Forgot Password option before screen lock to force me to factory reset?

Phone is not rooted, using Android 2.3.5.

Edit: I have tried without Google account: after 5 try still the Forgot password, but than it is a Factory reset, so it is related to Google account.

What's the problem that you're trying to solve here? From what I can work out, if you forget your password you want to be forced to factory reset your phone immediately, with no other option for some reason? –  GAThrawn Oct 3 '12 at 13:14
    
exactly. With a Parental control app I am changing the password and I am locking the device. It is to easy to unlock. Take a look at Kaspersky's Parental Contro app. –  matheszabi Oct 3 '12 at 13:16
