Remove lock screen password?

Recommended Posts

I changed the passcode to a new one yesterday to avoid others using my phone. Currently, my kids and wife both know the old password. Unfortunately,  I can't remember the new password for now. and being locked out of my G5. How could i regain access my phone?

After too many failed unlock attempts it will lock you out for 30 seconds, but after that if you get it wrong one more time you have the option to unlock it w/ your google account password.  Or factory reset your Android phone.

It is simple. To disable a password you created simply:

1. press the "Settings" icon
2. Press "Location & security"
3. Scroll down to "Set Password"
4. Enter the current password
5. Leave the New Password and Confirm new password fields blank
6. Press "Ok"
