Try using Android device manager on your computer to change the password on your phone. (Using the lock option) This should change your lock screen password to what you type in on the computer and allow you to get into the phone again.

Re: i can not remmeber my lock cod or pass cod

Greetings and welcome to Android Central!

Just curious to know what phone do you have and do you have a Google Account? If the latter, then here's what I found that should work:


  • Go to AuthSubTokens and enter your login details to see if your Android device is listed.
    If your device is listed, it will be shown as an "Android Phone"


  • Revoke access for the device.


  • Generate a new password.

    1. At the bottom of the page, you will see an option to "Generate New Application-Specific Password".
    2. Enter any name and click on "Generate Password".
    3. A 16-digit password will be generated.
    4. Enter this new password in your Android device, along with the correct Google ID.


  • If the "Generate password" option is disabled, you'll need to enable 2-Step Verification.

  • Follow the 2-Step Verification link to Google, and set up 2-Step Verification.
  • Depending on your device, you'll receive options from Google to generate a new password and access your Android device using the 2-Step Verification process.

Hope all works out for you. :cool:
