How to bypass Android lock screen password/pin/pattern without factory reset

The main reason to set up some sort of lock screen security on your smartphone is to keep strangers (or friends) from checking out your messages or private pictures. Beyond that, you don’t want anyone who dares to steal your phone to get full access to your mails, pictures or other sensitive data. But what if you’re the one who cannot access your phone? You could forget your PIN or pattern, right? Or someone pranks you by setting up a lock screen pattern and just leaves you struggling with it.

So, in case you forgot your password/pin or pattern these are the methods apart from Factory Reset and google login to recover password/pin/pattorn or to remove it.

Unlock your Android device using Android Device Manager (ADM)

As already mentioned, the following method only applies to devices that have Android Device Manager enabled.
  1. On a computer or other mobile phone, visit: google.com/android/devicemanager
  2. Sign in using your Google login details that you also used on your locked phone.
  3. In the ADM interface, select the device you need to unlock (if it isn’t already selected).
  4. Select ‘Lock’
  5. In the appearing window, enter a temporary password. You don’t have to enter a recovery message. Now click ‘Lock’ again.
  6. If it was successful, you should see a confirmation below the box with the buttons Ring, Lock and Erase.
  7. On your phone you should now see a password field in which you should enter the temporary password. This should unlock your phone.
  8. Now, before you go on with your life, go to your phone’s lock screen settings and disable the temporary password.
  9. That’s it!

Disable your lock screen using custom recovery and “Pattern Password Disable” (SD card needed)

This method is for more advanced Android users that know what the terms “rooting” and “custom recovery” mean. As the title says, for this to work you need any kind of custom recovery installed and your phone must have an SD card slot. Why the SD card? Well, we need to transfer a ZIP file to your phone and that’s usually not possible when it’s locked. The only way is to insert an SD card with the file.Unfortunately, card slots became kind of a rare thing in the smartphone world, so this will only work for some people.
Here’s what you need to do:
  1. Download the Pattern Password Disable ZIP file on your computer and put it on an SD card.
  2. Insert the SD card into your phone.
  3. Reboot your phone into recovery.
  4. Flash the ZIP file on your SD card.
  5. Reboot.
  6. Your phone should boot up without a locked screen. Should there be a password or gesture lock screen, don’t panic. Just type in a random password or gesture and your phone should unlock.
Now, this one for SAMSUNG users -
