How to Unlock your Android device using Android Device Manager (ADM)
We always keep some sort of screen lock security in our devices to keep our phone/tabs secured from friends/strangers or while your phone got lost, as we don’t want that our personal data or pictures been compromised by anyone. The Screen lock is one of the useful features for everyone, but it can also cause you many hassles if you ever forgot the pattern, Pin or password you set for your device screen lock. There are many solutions to unlock your locked phone.
