Recently a friend of mine forgot the pattern to her phone and hence the only way out was for her to hand Flash the phone. She had important documents inside it especially are school project work and she didn’t back it up on her laptop. She tried remembering the pattern but she couldn’t hence have to hand flash the phone. Let’s get back to why you are reading this article.
After the whole incidence, I discovered that there was actually a way for us to have opened the phone without hand flashing it and thereby not losing anything in the process. You must have heard of this app “Find my Device“, it’s not just for searching for your lost phone, it can be used to open your phone should you forget the password or pattern.
You could download the app on a friend’s phone and sign in using your Google login details that you also use on your locked phone. One’s login, you will see your device you want to unlock, select Lock, enter a temporary password, and select lock again. Once you are done with that you will see a confirmation below the box with options: Ring, lock, and Erase. You will also see a password field on your Android phone, just enter the temporary password. Go back to your Android phone lock screen settings and disable the temporary password.
This is also why you should be careful about giving anybody your mail login details. Note what I have just described above may not work for all phones as a lot of phone companies are making sure their phone securities are very tight.
Please don’t give just anybody access to your mail logins and this information should not be used wrongly by anybody.
