How To Reset Your Android Phone The Simplest Way

Published

on

If you forget your Android lock screen password, is there a way to unlock your phone? The short answer is no – you will have to factory reset your device to be able to use your phone again. And because all recent versions of Android encrypt the data on your phone by default, there is no way to recover any photos, contacts or other data that you haven’t backed up to your Google account; they will be gone forever after the reset. However, at least your phone will be unlocked and you’ll be able to use it again.

There are two ways to factory reset an Android phone if you’ve forgotten the password and can’t get past the lock screen. The first is to use Google’s Find My Device, which allows you to remotely erase your phone online. If you don’t have Find My Device turned on (it should be on by default), you’ll have to use the second method, Android’s “Recovery Mode”.

It’s critical to note that resetting your phone through either of these methods will require you to know your Google account and password that was used to set up the phone. If you don’t have this information, the device will be permanently locked. This security measure is in place to prevent a thief from using your device after factory resetting it.

How to reset your Android phone through Find My Device

  • Go to android.com/find. If you’re not already, sign in to your Google account that is the main profile on your device. And if you have more than one device, select the phone you want to erase at the top left of the screen.
  • Select ERASE DEVICE
  • Click the ERASE DEVICE button
  • Follow the steps to set up your phone again – note that you will need to verify the Google account information you originally used to set up the phone in order to proceed with setting up the device.

How To Reset Your Nintendo Switch

How To Reset Your Nintendo Switch

If your Nintendo Switch is playing up and having glitches, or if you’re about to sell it or give it to someone, you might want to reset it.

There are a few different ways to reset your Switch with slightly different results, and we’ll run you through each in turn, down below.

Since all of Nintendo’s Switch models run the same software, these steps should work on original Switches, Switch Lites and Switch OLED models in the same way.

How to hard reset your Switch

If you want to keep all your data but perform a total reboot of your Switch (for example, if it’s not turning on), the steps are quite simple.

  1. When the system is powered off, hold the power button for 15 seconds
  2. Release the power button then press it to power on
  3. If your console boots, the reset has been completed

How to factory reset your Switch

If you’re instead looking to wipe your Switch completely clean, ready for a new user to set themselves up on it without access to any of your data, you’ll want to factory reset the console. Do that by following these steps:

  1. From the console’s home menu, select Settings
  2. Scroll down to System on the left menu bar
  3. Scroll to the bottom of these options and select Formatting Options
  4. Select Initialize Console then hit OK
  5. Wait for the process to erase your data

Once this is over, your console will be like new and all data will be gone. Back up anything you want to keep, first!

If you can’t do the steps above you can go a more in-depth route, with the steps below.

  1. With the console powered off, hold down the volume up and volume down keys, then hold the power button
  2. Hold these buttons down until Maintenance Mode starts
  3. From here, select Initialize Console to erase your data (an option is there to keep your saves instead)

How To Activate Samsung Easy Mode

Samsung’s smartphones are some of the very best on the market, and rightly have a reputation for pushing the boundaries of what a phone can do.

That means they can be a little complicated to get your head around if you’re not an experienced smartphone user, though. Thankfully, there’s a very useful mode that you can toggle to make things simpler – easy mode. Here’s how it works and how to turn it on.

What is Samsung easy mode?

What Samsung calls easy mode is effectively a setting on its smartphones that makes its display significantly easier to read.

It works by making your app icons a bunch bigger, as well as all buttons and fonts, to make it easier to read what’s on your phone’s display.

This is perfect for those with visual impairments but also for those newer to smartphones, like older people.

It also simplifies your home screen and adds an “Apps” button to make it obvious where to find your apps list.

How to turn on Samsung easy mode

Turning on easy mode is relatively straightforward – follow these steps to activate it.

  1. Swipe down from the top of your display and tap the gear icon at the top right corner
  2. Select Display in your settings
  3. Scroll down until you see Easy mode and tap on it
  4. Toggle the setting on using the switch

Underneath the toggle when it’s on you’ll see some extra settings to customise, including the tap-and-hold delay and high contrast keyboard colour settings.

This Right Deal Here Is The Samsung Galaxy A14

Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy A14 has appeared in leaked press shots and it looks pretty good for a budget handset, too.

The phone, which is expected to come with a large 6.8-inch Full HD+ display, has been shared by leaker Evan Blass. He says that these images are the real deal and will be used by Samsung for press purposes, rather than the unofficial renders that had been shared before now.

These images show the front, back, and side of the phone including a trio of cameras around the back alongside an LED flash. The main camera is expected to be a 50-megapixel shooter, with a 13-megapixel camera handling selfie duties around the front.

On the inside, we’ve been told to look forward to an as-yet-unknown Exynos chip and a 5,000mAh battery.

The phone itself is expected to be “quite aggressively priced” while Blass also expects that carriers will offer “numerous ways to take it home for free”.

As for when Samsung is expected to finally take the wraps off the Galaxy A14, we still don’t have any concrete information. However, the report by Blass appears to suggest that it isn’t too far out, saying that Samsung will announce it after “people have already done their holiday shopping” as part of the recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday festivities.
