If you own an Android phone, then you might know about the option to set a custom unlock pattern which you can use to unlock the phone and prevent it from misuse by others. To set the unlock pattern on your Android phone, go to Settings > Location & security > Change screen lock > Pattern. Now set the desired pattern and move ahead.

Now, if you somehow forget the chosen unlock pattern then you cant unlock the device. After several wrong attempts it will ask to enter your Gmail ID and password. If you don’t remember your Google/gmail account password or some other issue arises, then here is a working trick which can help you out. Also, you don’t need to do a Hard Reset to unlock your Android phone. Just check the simple process below:

1. Enter your Google account username in the username field.

Example: Gmail id is Then username will be xyz

2. In the password field, enter the password as: null

Your phone will then get unlocked and will ask you to set a new unlock pattern to unlock the phone in future. Hope this works. ;)
