Gone are those days when you forget your lock pattern of your android smartphone and the next thing to do is just to rush down to an engineer’s office or shop to flash (reset or unlock) it.
Android smartphones are famous worldwide for having various kind of useful applications and games. Since we download apps that we need like we use messengers, photo editors, calling apps, launchers and other security apps.
Normally we use pattern lock to protect phone for others or we even use some applications. It is a very easy and simple way to secure our personal mobile phone data with pattern lock. We have to just draw a pattern and that’s it. As we don’t have to bother about putting numbers or characters for password. Because we can easily forget numbers and characters as compare to pattern lock, it is a very rare case that you may forget your pattern lock.
Though we usually make use of the playstore by sign-in to our Gmail account to reset our phone, but incase u don’t have an account linked to the playstore don’t worry, i am here with three different tricks you can make use of which at least one of the method must work for you to unlock pattern lock!.

2. So the other requirement is USB Debugging should be enabled before your android device was locked.
3. The process will probably not be helpful if you don’t have specific and compatible drivers for your phone. So you should be very careful While installing your device compatible drivers.
Steps To Unlock Android Pattern Lock.
Step 1. Connect your locked android phone with PC/Laptop via USB.

Step 2. Then, Open folder where you installed Android SDK Tools Users, navigate to the following >> App Data >> Local >> Android >> Android-SDK >> Platform-Tools and then click on blank space hold shift and click right mouse button and select “open command window here”.

Step 3. It will open you command window. Then, you have to put some commands in the command window:-
For checking your device is connected or not put command:-

Then, put these commands:-

adb shellcd /data/data/ settings.dbupdate system set value=0 where name=’lock_pattern_autolock’;update system set value=0 where name=’lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently’;.quit
If above commands not working put:-
adb shell rm /data/system/gesture.key
Step 4. Once you done the above steps, you have to reboot your android device. Now its all done.

Since, in the above methods we have used PC/Laptop, we downloaded software and we usedsome commands. But if you do not have a PC/Laptop or your device did not have USB Debugging enable, then you can follow this method.
Note:- In this method your all data will be lost. So if you do not want to lose your data then don’t  follow this method.

Step 1. First of all, Switch off your Locked Android Device.

Step 2. Then, boot your Android device into “Recovery Mode” using specific keys by holding power key and volume up key simultaneously.

Step 3. After opening Recovery Mode

       Select “Factory Data Reset” option              and give “Yes“.
    ➠ Select “Wipe Cache Partition” to           wipe cache data.

Step 4. Reboot your device.
