What should I do if I forget the standard pattern lock screen order/pass (the one that you need to join 4 or more points between the 3x3 matrix screen) on my android phone?

  • Hmmm.. I had been using the pattern lock since I had this phone and only now realized I didn't see the usual gmail unlock that you usually can use if you forgot the pattern.

  • Does this solves your problem? Dec 11 '20 at 13:01

If you have linked a gmail account on your android, dont worry.. just follow these steps:-

  1. Input the wrong pattern 3 or more times till "forgot password" button appears
  2. Click on forgot password button and check your inbox
  • It is not available in modern Android. Using it will only increase timeout. Oct 9 '18 at 17:25
