firstly don't panic there are several

ways to unlock your device without

having to lose your apps and data

we're going to start with the easiest

solution first and if those don't work

for you we are also going to show you

not one not two but six more advanced

and in-depth solutions that will unlock

a device without any data loss but

before we get started

we recommend you to watch the entire

video before getting started

and make sure to try the easiest

solution first so without any further

ado

let's get started now folks generally

there are two strategies that you can

apply

to unlock an android device number one a

semi data loss method

number two a no data loss method and

additionally we are also going to show

you how to bypass and remove third-party

lock screen apps

like cm locker as well now folks in case

if you're wondering which method to go

with first

then check this out if unlocking your

device is more important than the data

in it

then go with the semi data loss method

as it is the easiest and the fastest way

to unlock

any device out there which basically

includes taking a logged android device

then holding the power button and

turning it off once it is completely

turned off

boot into your device's recovery menu by

holding a special combination of

hardware buttons

which usually includes holding the power

button with either the volume keys

or the home button depending on your

device for my phone its power plus

volume down

for samsung devices its volume up plus

home plus the power button

to find out how to boot into yours check

the links in the description box

under the thumbs up button now folks my

device right here has an updated version

of android stock recovery yours might

look like this

or this either ways navigate and select

the option that says clear data factory

reset or something similar

by using the touch screen or the volume

buttons after that

keep your phone in a cool and dry place

till android resets your device into a

faster than before

snappier and most importantly an

unlocked device

factory resetting your device through

the android recovery is gonna save you

from a lot of headaches

although it does formats your phone

deleting certain files like apps and

settings

but however if your data was synced via

your google account

which most devices are these days all

their important files will be back

within hours of logging in into your

google account

plus is just one straight method that

works every time

on every android device out there it's

probably the easiest and the fastest way

to unlock

any android device out there period with

that we come to the no data loss methods

under which you get to remove the lock

screen and also get to keep your apps

and data

sounds great under the no data loss

strategy there are a total of six

methods that you can apply all of these

methods are tested and would bypass

reset or entirely remove the lock screen

without any data loss

as always we're gonna start with the

easiest method first and then move over

to the harder ones

number one google recovery option this

is the official way to unlock your

locked android device without losing any

data

this is exactly what folks at android

are gonna tell you if you call them up

regarding this issue

so let's get on with it for android

version 4.0 kitkat and below

this is what to do enter wrong lock

screen password or pattern

five times shouldn't be that difficult

an option is gonna appear

at the bottom end of the lock screen

which says forgot pattern or password

tap on that then you'll be prompted to

enter in your google username and

password that you use to set up your

device i'm gonna pass it over to my

friend who owns this device to fill in

his credentials

now if you can't remember your google

password as well then head over to this

link right here to reset your google

password

once the credentials are filled in tap

on sign in then it's gonna take a couple

of seconds to verify just make sure that

your device is connected to the internet

throughout the process

now some of you guys might be wondering

what if the wifi

or the data connection was turned off

before me getting logged out

now there is a simple trick that you can

use to turn on your device's internet

while the device is still locked simply

ask a friend of yours to give your

locked phone a call

and boom you'll have instant access to

the notification bar

and you could turn on the wi-fi or data

connections from here

once the verification part is done

you'll be prompted to select a new lock

screen

select one which suits you we're gonna

go with this new pattern and

boom your device is now back under

control nothing's changed

as simple as that but what about devices

running on a later version of android

that is version 5.0 lollipop and above

now folks with higher security standards

google

decided to give away the old forgot

password system

and went with a more robust recovery

system called as android device manager

adm in short it basically includes

keeping a locked phone aside

and taking another internet connected

device it could be a computer it could

be your mom's phone

anything that's connected to the

internet will do and open up the browser

and head over to this link right here

once there it's going to prompt you to

enter in your google credentials that

you used on your locked phone

once you're logged in it's going to look

something like this with the map of the

world behind

so we get a couple of options here

number one's ring

number two is lock and number three is

wipe i had already made a detailed video

on android device manager

so make sure to watch that after

watching this one the lock option is

primarily what we're going to be using

today

here you get to enter in a new password

and some additional info like your

alternate phone number or a message

saying please return the phone to this

address if the phone was lost or stolen

and that should unlock your device if

the permissions were set correctly but

if nothing works out then you can always

remotely wipe your device by executing

the wipe command from here

it's quite similar to the factory reset

method but it's a bit faster

and cooler to perform moreover it would

get your device unlocked without having

to enter into the recovery mode

with that we come to the custom recovery

method and here's where things start

getting interesting

under this method we are gonna

technically break into the android

system

and delete the files that holds your

password fingerprint and lock screen

data so when you turn on your device

android literally forgets that your

device was ever logged

and opens up into an unlocked android

device with all your apps and data

intact

however the only requirement for this to

work is your locked device

should have a custom recovery installed

now folks it all sounds good on paper

though so let's go ahead and try it out

as you can see my phone over here is

both fingerprint and

pin code protected so it's locked up

pretty good first of all turn off your

device

once your device is completely turned

off boot into your device's custom

recovery mode by holding in a special

combination of hardware buttons

which usually includes the power button

either the volume keys or the home

button depending on your device

for my device which is a motorola g4

plus it's volume down

plus the power button in order to find

out yours check the description box

under the thumbs up button now folks my

device over here is running on the twrp

custom recovery

which is the most widely used custom

recovery out there but your device might

be on a different custom recovery which

can be the clockwork mod recovery all

the fills custom recovery

which might look a bit different than

mine over here but more or less the

basic set of options here are same

across all the custom recoveries

so first of all head into the mount

section and enable

everything that's on the list once that

is done head back

and now we're going to be needing a file

manager to delete the lock screen files

that i was talking about earlier

and for that we're going to be using the

aroma file manager

the link to that is also in the

description box simply download that

file and move it into a device memory

either through an sd card and usb cable

well your computer will recognize your

device if it is in the recovery mode

while connected to your computer or you

can also transfer the file through the

usb otg cable

once the file is in your device simply

head over to the install section right

here

then find and open the aroma file

manager.zip file

okay mine's over here so let's open it

up now it's gonna take a couple of

seconds to load

once you're in the aroma file manager

navigate over to the data folder

then head over to the system folder then

scroll all the way down and delete any

files

starting with these prefixes for newer

android devices like mine it's

gatekeeper and

lock screen for older android devices

it's simply

gesture dot key or password dot key

so in our case we have a total of five

files to delete

starts with gatekeeper and lock screen

prefixes you might have two

three or even six files to delete

depending on your device but just make

sure to delete only those files

which starts with these prefixes either

ways select the files by long pressing

on them

so it's one two three four and five then

tap on the menu button over here then

tap on the delete button

and hit on yes once that is done exit

the file manager and it's gonna take you

back to the custom recovery menu

and head back and tap on the reboot

button to restart your device

so here's the device after the boot

let's check out if it worked or not so

i got my finger crossed here and boom

as you can see no more lock screen it's

completely unlocked but before we start

judging things let's go ahead and check

out if i got all my apps games and data

intact

and as you can see all my apps games and

data are in fact

intact nothing has changed only the lock

screen was removed

which is pretty cool now from here you

can head over to the security settings

and set up a new lock screen

just don't forget this one now folks

android version 5.0

all the way up to 5.1.1 lollipop has

this really weird exploit that could be

used to bypass the lock screen

like those on iphones but the only

limitation with that is it only works

for password locks not for pin

or patents and might not work at all on

all devices running those versions of

android

it's basically a trial and error method

which includes overloading the options

that are accessible from the lock screen

like the camera app or the emergency

dialer with the prime objective of

crashing that lock screen

one way of doing that is by taking a

photo then entering into the gallery and

quickly pressing the home button

another way of doing it is by entering

in astrix in the emergency dialer and

repeatedly copying and pasting the same

you can also use our notification bar

trick to gain access to additional

options

sooner or later under increasing loads

these apps would crash

and the lock screen would also crash for

a second once that happens

android will take you back to the

unlocked home screen and gives you

access to your device for just

long enough to either apply the methods

shown earlier or back up all your data

so that you can factory reset your

device

and get your data back again not a 100

guaranteed method but it's worth

mentioning

but say what if you had a third party

lock screen installed

or was first installed by a malicious

app now some of these third-party lock

screens do come with a forgot password

option

but some don't and others don't work

that well however

there is a great way of bypassing and

disabling the lock screen app itself

without having to unlock the phone

well the phone is not going to unlock by

itself right

nah wrong that's exactly what we're

going to be showing you now

now folks most modern android devices

has this really cool hidden mode called

as the safe mode

similar to the one that we find on all

computers it's primarily used to

troubleshoot

and debug electronics in order to enter

into yours

single press on the physical power

button then long press

on the power off option for a couple of

seconds an additional menu is gonna pop

up which will reboot your device into

the safe mode

for samsung devices it's the volume down

button pressed

while the device is turning on if done

right your device is gonna restart with

a safe mode watermark at the bottom left

corner of the screen

with all third party apps turned off

which means

no third party lock screen this time

around so in order to remove the lock

screen from the normal mode

navigate over to the settings section on

the safe mode then scroll over to the

apps section then find the lock screen

app and then simply uninstall the

trouble causing app

that is cm locker in our case after that

restart your device

it will reboot into the normal mode and

boom no more lock screen

again i had already made a detailed

video on safe mode and all the awesome

things about it so

make sure to watch that video after

watching this one now folks for 99

of android users the above methods are

gonna do the job

but unfortunately if you fall under that

one percent then here's what you're

gonna need

a computer an usb cable your locked

phone

all mobile drivers installed a software

called as adb

and some tinkering with your device's

source file now folks for most older

android devices is just one string of

code

entered into the command prompt will do

the job of removing the lock screen

for higher versions of android you will

need to enter in a couple of strings of

code to unlock your device

it's quite similar to the custom

recovery method that we showed you

earlier

both methods literally includes deleting

the file that holds the lock screen

info again the link to everything with

detailed instruction

is in the description box under the

thumbs up button

now folks if that's a bit complicated

for your taste then you could also try

out free or professional lock screen

recovery tools available online like say

if you own a phone

from one of these manufacturers or

careers and you gave that extra effort

in setting up that find my phone account

while setting up your new phone then you

are in luck in that case head over to

these links over here on another

internet connected device

enter in your find my phone account

credentials and you're gonna see

something like this

it's your devices or careers own version

of google's android device manager

just a bit fancier with a couple of

extra options options like track

locate ring call logs wipe and most

importantly

unlock my screen or something similar

based on your device manufacturer and

career

select that here and your phone would

unlock instantly

over there again if your locked device

was not connected to the internet

you know what to do an almost similar

service or a version of the same

is provided by almost all major device

manufacturers

from apple to windows 80 nt to verizon

and also by most major android device

manufacturers

in fact a simple google search will help

you find out a similar service

if made available by your device

manufacturer or career

so again folks if you're enjoying this

video on your unlocked phone

then it's always better to set up a

recovery strategy as soon as possible

because you never know when you might

get logged out of your lovely device

it happened to me twice it happens to

the best of us

so folks if this video was helpful to

you in any means or you just got to

learn something new today then don't

hesitate to give this video a thumbs up
