    Welcome to Android Central! There's no way to reveal a password, because that would defeat the security function of a password. What happens if you fail the unlock enough times? Does it ask you for your Google credentials?

    I've had the same problem, and yes, eventually it does ask for Google credentials, but because of power saving it had turned itself off of WiFi so the Google responses didn't work for me. Now I can't even get it to ask for them, keeps reverting to alternate password. Don't want to factory reset, because no way to back up data without access. Any other ideas?
