I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. My daughter put a screen lock on and doesn't remember the code. How do I unlock it?

    Welcome to stack exchange! Try not to explain the problem in the title(your title could have been "daughter locked out of Samsung galaxy 2") :)

If you log on to android device manager, you can send a lock request, allowing you to change the password. Just be sure to change it after!

As a alternative, keep getting it wrong until "forgot password?" and login in via google. It will then let you reset the password


First off the tab. Then 1. Power key 2. Volume up key 3. Main key

Press same time. After come option then select wip aLL data . Your tab will reset. Rember. After reset you lose all data . Which have in your tab memory.

    There is no "main key" on the tab. Other than volume and power, all keys are software keys. (part of the systemUI)
