Your Huawei P9 is one of Huawei’s greatest smartphone yet. It boasts the camera that can put the iPhone under it but when you suddenly forgot your passcode or just want to reset it, here’s how you can do it.

Forgotten screen lock

If you used a password or PIN, you’ll need to use Android Device Manager to unlock your phone.

If you’ve forgotten your screen pattern lock, you can unlock it with your Backup PIN.

  1. After five attempts you’ll be asked to wait for 60 seconds.

  2. If your phone display goes off, tap the power button and unlock your screen.

  3. Tap Backup PIN and enter your PIN.

  4. You’ll be asked to create a new screen unlock pattern. If you don’t want one, tap None.

Note: You need to have a Google account on your phone for these steps to work. If you haven’t set up a Google account, you’ll need to reset your phone. The reset will clear all the data stored on your phone, data that’s stored on your SIM is safe.
