My husband forgot his pattern for his lockscreen on is LG stylo 4 and he has a bunch of text messages that he needs to read. I don't want to hard reset the phone itself because i'm scared that it will delete the text messages that he hasn't read yet. Is there any other way to get into his phone without a hard reset? Please help! this is a time sensitive issue!!!
Sorry to hear that you've been experiencing this issue. Follow these steps:
-After five attempts you'll be asked to wait for 30 seconds, tap OK.
-If your phone display goes off, tap the power button and unlock your screen.
-Tap Forgot pattern or Forgot knock code.
-Enter your Google account details and tap Sign in. If you set up a backup PIN, enter it then tap OK.
-You'll be asked to create a new screen unlock pattern. If you don't want one, tap Swipe or None.
