These days, smartphones have become personal devices and everyone wants to keep their data secure from others.
You can secure your smartphone in numerous ways such as PIN, password, pattern or fingerprint. This way, even the data stored on your device will be safe from the prying eyes. However, imagine forgetting the password, PIN or pattern to unlock your phone.
Here, you will get to know how you can bypass the lock screen security of your Reliance Jio running Android smartphone. This way, you can unlock your smartphone even if you have forgotten the lock screen security.
Use Android Device Manager to unlock your Phone
One of the ways to unlock the phone is Android Device Manager. On a computer or other mobile phone, you need to visit the website, google.com/android/devicemanager. Sign in using your Google login details used on your locked phone. Then, select the device you need to unlock and select ‘Lock'. Enter a temporary password and click ‘Lock' again. You will get a confirmation below the box with three buttons - Ring, Lock and Erase. Now, you will get a password field on your phone in which you should enter the temporary password. This should unlock your phone. You can change the same later.
Use Google login to unlock the lock screen pattern
This method works on devices that run on Android 4.4 KitKat and below. This is a faster way to unlock your smartphone. If you don't remember your lock screen pattern, you can enter wrong patterns for more five or more times and select the option - Forgot Pattern. You can enter the backup Pin or Google login details. This will unlock your smartphones.
Try custom recovery to disable the lock screen
To try this method, there should be a SD card in your phone. In fact, this is an advanced way to unlock the device. Download the ZIP file, Pattern Password Disable on your computer and save it on your phone's SD card. Insert the card in your phone and reboot the phone into recovery. Flash the ZIP file on the SD card and reboot the device. Your phone will boot up without a locked screen. It will show a password or gesture lock screen and you need to just type any password or make a gesture to unlock the phone.
Factory reset should be the last resort
Of course, doing a factory reset will erase all the data you have saved on your phone. Hence, this should be the last resort to unlock your phone if you have forgotten the password, PIN or pattern.
