Part 2. How to Remove Password on Android Device with Find My Device

In addition to EaseUS MobiUnlock for Android, here we will introduce another third-party service - Find My Device to help you remove passwords on locked Android devices. Unlike universal EaseUS MobiUnlock for Android, Find My Device is limited to being used to locate, find, lock, and unlock Android devices only when this feature is enabled on Android devices. What's more, to use this service, the Location service must be also turned on. So if your locked Android phone or tablet doesn't meet these conditions, you can't use it to unlock your Android device.

Here's how to remove password on Android device with Find My Device:

Step 1. Open a browser on another device and go to the Find My Device website.

Step 2. Log in with your Google account.

Step 3. Then select your locked Android device that is associated with this Google account.

Step 4. Then select SECURE DEVICE.

Step 5. You will be asked to set a new password for your locked phone or tablet to replace the original one that you forget.

Step 6. You can get access to your Android device with this new password.

Part 3. How to Remove Password on Android Device with Factory Reset

In this section, we will share with you how to factory reset your Android device to bypass the lock screen. Similar to EaseUS MobiUnlock for Android, a factory reset will delete everything that is stored on the device. And your phone will be reset back to its original factory status. As your phone is locked, you can't perform a standard factory reset in Settings. So you will perform an external factory reset via some hardware buttons.

Here's how to remove password on Android phones via a factory reset:

Step 1. Turn off your locked Android device.

Step 2. Press the Volume Up/Down and the Power buttons simultaneously for a few seconds until the screen lights up.

Step 3. When you get into the Recovery Mode, select Wipe data/factory reset with the Volume Down (for the Down key) and the Power (for the OK key) buttons.

Select Wipe data/factory reset

Step 4. Then select Factory data reset > Reboot system now in the same way.

select Reboot system now

Step 5. All that's left now is to wait for the process to complete.
