    Use Android Device Manager to unlock the screen. In ADM, hit lock screen, you will be asked for a password, use that to access your device

    If you forgot the password/pattern you need to factory reset your device... it can be done through recovery

    Welcome to Android Central! On some devices, if you fail the unlock enough times, it might prompt you for your Google account and password. But if it doesn't, then 420lyfe is correct -- you'll have to do a factory reset using the hardware keys. What do I do if I forgot my password to unlock to my tablet? – Trio Tablet Support

    If the device is on Lollipop or above, then you'll have to reenter the correct Google username and password after the factory reset is complete -- hopefully you remember that.
