Method 1: Unlock Lenovo Phones With Google Security Questions (Android 4.4 Or Lower)

Lenovo phones run on Android OS, bought and now developed by Google. So naturally, Google has its tentacles deep enough. In this case, that gives you some advantages, such as unlocking Lenovo phones with your Google security questions for those who entered the incorrect pattern too many times.

Are you one of those rare few who do not jump at the new phone releases each year? Then, salute! Now, if your Lenovo phone is running on Android 4.4 or lower, you can use the Forgot Pattern feature to unlock your Lenovo phone via Google Account Security Questions.

This method does not cause any data loss on the device.

Here's how to unlock a Lenovo phone running Android 4.4 or prior versions with Google security questions:

Step 1: Tap the Forgot Pattern option that comes when an incorrect pattern is entered on the device a few times.

Step 2: Tap the option to enter your google credentials and sign in with the account that the phone was registered under.

Step 3: Provide the new pattern to unlock your Lenovo phone and confirm.

On a side note, Android 4.4 is too old and no longer considered safe to use daily. There may not be too many apps that support that old version either. If possible, we recommend upgrading to stay abreast with the latest security developments in Android OS.

Method 2: Unlock Lenovo Phones Using Android Unlock Toolkit (100% work)

If all you want to do is unlock your phone as quickly as possible without going through hoops in doing so, you can use the excellent phone unlock software by Wondershare Dr.Fone - Screen Unlock.

Method 5: Request Service Provider To Unlock Lenovo Phones

Now, if you are looking to unlock your phone to use it with other service providers, you can request your network provider to unlock the phone for you. Each network provider has its own eligibility criteria you must adhere to before they unlock your phone; you need to ask your network provider theirs and follow it before requesting them to unlock your phone. Of course, there is a Wondershare way to do things, by way of Dr.Fone - SIM Unlock.

Method 6: Another Way To Factory Reset Lenovo Phone When You Can't Log In To Android

Conclusion

Knowing how to unlock a Lenovo phone comes in handy when you forget your passcode or password or have entered it incorrectly a few times in haste. However, unlocking a phone is considered troublesome because it causes data loss in most cases. Google offers a way to unlock your device without data loss, but you would have to be running the archaic Android 4.4 or even lower, released way back in 2013. With just over 1% of the installed Android base still on 4.4, chances are you are not one of them and need another way.
