While the services offered by Android Device Manager are beneficial and provide more control over your Android device once configured, many people would start thinking of how such solutions can help once it has been too late and we’ve already lost our android phone. Google engineers must have had that in mind when they rolled out the Android Device Manager feature in Android.
Android Device Manager lets users remotely ring, lock, unlock and even erase their Android phone without having to install a separate app. It is a wise option to get your android phone locked by Android Device Manager in case it is lost or stolen. You can also let the Android Device Manager unlock your Android phone when you forgot the passcode of your phone.
Below is the step-by-step process for letting Android Device Manager unlock your phone:
Firstly, you should understand that unlocking your Android phone with the Android Device Manager only works if you had enabled it prior to locking your phone. Without enabling the Android Device Manager on your phone, you cannot use it to unlock your phone.
Step 1: From an internet-enabled device (phone or a computer), go to www.google.com/android/devicemanager.
Step 2: In that Device Manager webpage, Sign in using your Google login credentials. It should be the same one that you used on your locked Android phone.
Step 3: After that, a list of devices will appear. From that list, click on the device (locked phone) that you need to unlock. In most cases, the locked device is selected by default.
Step 4: After selecting the device, Click on the ‘Lock’ button.
Step 5: You will be prompted to enter a temporary password in the interface that follows. Click on the ‘Lock’ option once more.
If the Step 5 was successful, you should see confirmation with the buttons – Ring, Lock and Erase.
Step 6: You should see a passcode field on your phone screen (locked phone). Enter the same temporary password used in Step 5 to unlock your phone.
Step 7: Then, go to Phone Setting–>Security–>Screen lock–>Lock Screen Settings and disable the temporary password.
That’s it; the Android Device Manager has successfully unlocked your android phone!
