When you have forgotten the password and locked yourself out of your phone, you need not panic. This is a common situation many android users face and here we discuss how to unlock the phone.

By default, lock screens are designed to be hard to get into. However, there are a few ways to bypass them.

Android Device Manager

The instant way to unlock an android phone if you have forgotten the password is to use the Android Device Manager. You will have to log into your Google account to use this route. This feature can work only on the most modern phones. You can access this feature from any device you prefer.
