Locked phone - what next?

The lock on the phone protects valuable data stored on it, so it is so important to take care of it. But what to do in a reverse situation, when the phone locks itself, limiting the possibility of using it?

Google account:

You can unlock your phone by using your Google account. What is it about? You just need to log into your account in the Chrome browser. Then go to the Security section, where you can find the option Find lost or lost phone. Then select your Android phone and follow the steps that appear. This is the easiest way to find your loss. Finally, make sure the lost phone is logged into your account via Gmail for example.

Device Manager:

Device Manager is a special tool whose purpose is to access your Android phone from another device. Start by going to the Device Manager website. Then log in to it using your Google account. In the interface, find your phone, then select Block. The next step is to enter a temporary password after which you have to select Block again. After completing these steps, you will see a confirmation message with the choices of Call, Block, and Delete. Set a temporary password on your phone screen to unlock your phone. Completing these actions will be going to the phone lock settings to unlock it. A manager won't always work. For this to happen, certain conditions must be met: Android Device Manager enabled, GPS enabled, the Google account on the other device is the same as that linked to the locked phone. The manager works only on devices that support Android 4.4 and above.

iMyFone LockWiper:

For those who find the other methods too complicated, there is one more solution that can help. I am talking about iMyFone LockWiper. It is a computer program that can bypass Android locks easily. Thanks to it, you can get to the phone without the need to enter a PIN or password. This is a solution, for example, when an incorrect password is repeatedly entered and the phone is blocked or you buy a used phone with a lock. Start by downloading the program on your Windows PC. After connecting the phone to the computer, the program will automatically detect the mobile device. After confirming the information, you can proceed to the Start Unlocking step. LockWiper will install a special data unlocking package, tailored to the make and model of your phone. Instructions will appear on your computer screen to follow the entire process. So it works very efficiently, and the only, although quite significant, disadvantage of this solution is the fact that it is paid.
