I intended to find some super important data from my old Huawei phone, but I just could recall the pin code, and then to make matters worse, my phone was locked after several failed attempts. I desperately want to know how to unlock my huawei phone without screen password?

–A user’s question from Huawei community

As the above user reported, you may also meet the problem: how do I remove my pin lock if I forgot it? Most smartphone users tend to secure their personal data by the lock screen password/PIN code/pattern, but sometimes it turns out to be an own goal if the password is forgotten. Because theoretically the data within it can only be decrypted using the lock screen password. To put it simply, no pin code, no access to the phone.

Sounds horrible? Luckily, there are available ways to unlock Huawei phones, no matter you are using a pin code, screen pattern, or numeric password. This article helps you out with the top three methods to unlock without the password. No matter you’re using the latest Mate40 Pro or the older Nova 5i Pro, you can remove the screen lock and immediately play with your device again.

The easiest fix to unlock Huawei devices without losing data is using Forget Pattern feature. But this option only works on Android OS 4.4 and lower and requires Google credentials. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to unlock Huawei Phone without resetting:

Step 1. Randomly enter a wrong password for 5 attempts, then the system will show you a pop-out message to ask you to try again in 30 seconds.

Step 3. Follow the system wizard to create a new pattern, or tap on None if you don’t want a Pin code anymore.

But if you have updated your phone to a higher version, or have no idea of the Google account that is associated with the locked phone, keep reading to find other solutions that fit you.

Remotely Unlock Huawei with Find My Device

Google Find My Device is designed as a security service to remotely locate, lock/unlock or erase data of Android devices. If you have activated this feature on your phone before, try the instructions in the dropdowns below to get your screen lock removed right away.

This method asks for Google Account credentials (usually your Gmail address) and the device needs to be powered on and connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data.

Follow the steps below to Remotely unlock Huawei using Android Find My Device:

Step 1. Go to Find My Device official website on your PC > Sign in your Google Account that is used on the locked phone before.

Step 2. In the Find My Device interface > Tap Lock > Input a temporary password then click Lock again.

Step 3. Head to the settings to reset the password.

Unlock Huawei Phone PIN/Pattern/Password after Too Many Pattern Attempts

When you keep tapping a wrong password and reach the maximum number (usually five times) of attempts to unlock the screen, the confidential content will deny any access by default, which means you won’t have access to the phone until the lock time expires. In this case, we highly recommend you to try DroidKit, which provides you a robust Android phone unlock tool. It is capable of removing any type of screen lock on your Huawei phone, including a 4-digit or 6-digit PIN, pattern lock, fingerprint ID, face recognition, etc. 

DroidKit supports 20,000+ models of phones and tablets, covering all Android devices from different manufacturers. Beyond Huawei, it also works perfectly on Samsung, Google, MI, SONY, etc.

Now just download DroidKit and perform the following steps to fully access your locked Huawei phone again in minutes.
