Have you recently locked yourself out of your Android smartphone? Or recently purchased a second-hand Android device and found the device is still password, pattern, PIN or fingerprint locked?
Whilst the panic of being locked out of your Android smartphone can lead you to wonder if all of your contents are lost forever, it can cause greater financial worry – as you may have lost access to a phone you are paying for on a monthly network contract, or a recent handset purchase may seem like money thrown down the drain.
In the early Android days, this worry would be justified. A screen-locked Android phone would mean no more access to your precious photos, messages, contacts and app data. Worse, that costly network contract or upfront purchase for a PAYG device would have been money well and truly wasted.
Thankfully, in today’s market there are a number of self-help software solutions that can be downloaded for free, and can restore access to your Android phone in just a few clicks.
One particular solution is the widely popular Android PC Suite Tenorshare – 4uKey.
In this article we’ll show you how to use the aforementioned programme in a step by step guide. Firstly though, let’s introduce you to the software.
