We can give you professional help getting your data back so you can go on with your life.
What is a Passcode-lock?
Every Android device today is equipped with a security feature called passcode-lock. This allows the owner of the smartphone to put a security code, password, or pattern in place that is known only to them. After a passcode is put in place, it will need to be entered any time the screen is locked and someone wants to get into the phone. This is great if the phone is lost or stolen, as it means that the personal or sensitive information stored in the phone is safe from would-be thieves and prying eyes.
You’ll know if the phone is locked because when you try to get into it the screen will show numbers or text and ask you for the password, passcode, or PIN. The problem comes when the password can’t be put in properly. This can happen because the password has been forgotten, or the owner of the phone has passed away and all the corresponding passwords, security questions, and account details are unknown. It can also happen if the screen has broken and touch input is unavailable. Whatever the reason, if a password can’t be successfully entered then everything in the phone is inaccessible to the user.
How to Unlock a Passcode-Locked Android Phone Without Losing Data
Usually, phones have recovery methods in place to help prevent total lockout. The first resort in the event of a lockout, as long as touch input is available, is to use your Gmail account to unlock the phone. If the incorrect password is put in five times, a prompt will appear that says “Forgot Pattern.” Selecting this option allows you to put your Gmail account address and password in to unlock the phone. Then a new passcode can be created, or the old one can be recovered.
Touch input can become unavailable if the screen is cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged. A screen replacement could be an inexpensive way to restore touch input and access your data, but if the touchscreen circuit has additional damage then screen replacement may not help. This often happens to phones that have been dropped, which causes circuits or connectors to break. If any of these fixes don’t work, we can help. Data loss because of a locked phone is a common problem, and we can solve it by putting your data back in your hands.
Your Data can be Recovered from your Locked Android Phone
When you are locked out and completely unable to get back in without help, the first thing you might do is call your service provider or the phone manufacturer. The most common answer you will get from these helpful sources is to do a factory reset of the phone. This will indeed make the phone accessible again, but the cost is all of the data stored on the phone. A factory reset will wipe it clean.
