What To Do If You Forget Your Android Phone Lock Pattern

There are several options available on Android for preventing others from accessing your device. One of the most known options is the lock pattern, which is a great invention and solely exclusive to Android. Instead of typing in a four digit number or password you can simply draw a pattern. It’s an extremely handy way to put a layer of security on your device. Furthermore, unlike a pin code or password it can be forgotten easily. How do you go about it then?

To begin with, before you set up any type of security you should make sure your device is set up to be recovered easily. This way if someone steals your device, or you have to wipe it because you forgot your password, it will be easy to get everything back. To do this go to Settings >>Backup & reset and make sure the function is enabled.
