Re: Locked screen on tablet forgot password

That depends on the type of tablet, but a factory reset may be involved as to unlock the tablet after a restart, you would need to know the password.

If it is an Android device and you have enabled Android Device Manager on it then follow the instructions below:

How to Unlock Your Android Device Using Android Device Manager
Stepwise procedure to unlock your phone using the ADM:

Step 1. Visit: google.com/android/devicemanager, on your computer or any other mobile phone

Step 2. Sign in with the help of your Google login details that you had used in your locked phone as well.

Step 3. In the ADM interface, choose the device you want to unlock and then select "Lock".

Step 4. Enter a temporary password and click on "Lock" again.

Step 5. If the earlier step was a successful one, you will be able to see a confirmation below the box with the buttons - Ring, Lock and Erase.

Step 6. You will now be able to see a password field on your phone screen. Enter a temporary password to unlock your phone.

Step 7. Visit your phone’s lock screen settings and disable the temporary password.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

One of my neighbours had an Apple and with the purchase receipt, they unlocked it.
