    Hi guys,
    I have a big problem, a ransomware took over my tab and it demands a pin code, I cannot restart the tab in safe mode as it seems that the app managed to hide the "Safe Mode Restart", I also tried to factory reset it from ADB but I need to enable debugging on the tablet which of course I can't access.
    Any other ideas on what I can do?
    Thanks in advance.

    What version Android do you have?

    Each device differs slightly, but try this on Samsung devices:

    Press and hold the*Power*button,*Volume Up*button and*Home*key while the device is turned off.

    Once the Samsung logo appears, release*only*the*Power Button.

    The Android system recovery screen will appear.

    Use the*Volume*buttons to highlight*wipe data/factory reset.

    Press the*Power*button to select the factory reset option.

    If you’re unable to factory reset your device or delete the trojan app, it might be time to get a new one.
