    Lightbulb What to do when you forgot your password...

    Hi there,

    Some people say pressing the reset button/hole will work, others say your tablet asks for your Google password afther 5 tries. But unfortunately, non of them works.
    The only thing you can do about it is a factory reset, this means you've to delete all of your data (including the password you set).

    Step 1: Turn your device off
    Step 2: Turn your device on, by holding the power button.
    Step 3: When the screen lights up, release the power button and press and hold the volume up button.
    If you've done this right, a blue area with some text appears on the top of your screen. Follow the steps shown on that screen.

    DONE! YOUR DEVICE IS NOW READY TO BE USED AGAIN!

    Now, just a tip:
    If you don't want to lose your data again, go to Settings → Back-up and reset → Check the boxes and set an account.
    If this feature does what it says, you won't lose your data if you do a factory reset again.

    You made a statement that is incorrect and another that won't work for all tablets. The error was

    That in fact does work, if the WiFi is on.

    On the factory reset some tablets require that you hold the volume button down then the power button until the white text appears upper left then when the icons appear, volume down to the wipe data icon.
    Locked out of your Tablet? - Printing from an Android tablet (or phone) - Connecting to the Internet with no WiFi - Move/copy/cut/paste files to and from your tablet - WiFi connection issues - Getting Flash Player
