So, if You deleting some system scripts, you can easily unlock android mobile without a password. But for that, you need TWRP [team win recovery project].

  1. Hello, Kunal. I am trying the option of the Android Device Manager, but I don’t know how I am supposed to use the OTP with the phone I provided. Which phone was I supposed to use? can you please elaborate in this part? Thank you.

    1. Ok, I hope that your device is located on Google Find My Device. In case, if it was not able to find your Android Phone, then I will recommend you to try other available methods. Well, moving on to OTP part – When you tap on “Lock” option available on Google’s Find my device website, then at that time, your device will be locked according to them which can be unlocked by entering an OTP sent by them at the mobile number you entered while you are trying to lock.

      Well, I will not recommend you to use this option. Easier ones are available too 🙂

      1. Mm… I have done this… but no OTP is showed, neither on Google’s Find my device website or the number that is being called.

        Let me give you a full context of my situation: I have a Huawei P9 and today I decided to change my passwords from my Google account and my cellphone. When I tried to access my phone, the new PIN didn’t work (and I’m sure I used the correct one because I written it down before setting it)… It locked up and I already did the ADM part… but it’s really weird that I don’t have the option for the password… I don’t want to lose my personal data (pictures, contacts, etc.) because sadly I haven’t backed them up.
        In another forum I saw that a restart could help for the PIN matter, but it didn’t work…
        Do you know other options? you could ask me for more information if it helps you to help me.

        Thanks for your time.
