Pattern Lock provides medium protection and it is actually quite easy to unlock. However, this doesn’t mean anyone can unlock it, in most cases, only the owner of the phone can actually bypass it, here is how.
If you don’t know the exact pattern, then make 5 incorrect patterns and make sure you go through at least 4 points while entering incorrect patterns. When you will enter 5 incorrect patterns, you will be prompted that you need to wait 30 seconds before making further attempts, tap “OK” on the prompt. Now, you will see two new options below, “Forgot Password” and Backup Pin”. You can use any of these two options to access your phone.

When you first created the Pattern you were also prompted to add a Pin code that will be used to bypass Pattern in case you forget it. If you still remember the Pin code, then just tap on “Backup Pin” and enter the Pin Code. If you can’t access the Pin code field, then wait for the 30 second timer to finish and then enter the Pin code. As you enter the correct Pin code, you will be automatically directed to the “Lock Screen” option where you can enter a new protection option.

If you don’t remember the Pin code, then you can click on “Forgot Password” to unlock pattern using your Google Account. For this purpose, your phone must be connected to a Google account, and most probably it will be connected to a Google account as it is required to use most of Android features.
Tap on “Forgot Password” and on the next page, enter your Google account email and password and tap on “Sign in”. If both email and password are correct, then the phone will unlock and you will be directed to “Lock Screen” option.
