If the user has forgotten the lock screen pattern on the Huawei tablet, he is prompted to enter a numerical passcode instead. If both have been forgotten then the user can manually update the phone to reset both passwords, says Huaweii support.
When the user firsts sets up a lock screen they can set up both a pattern and a numerical code as a back-up. If both are forgotten, or if the Huawei tablet or phone is purchased used without unlock information, a manual reset is available from the Hauwei support site. This manual reset requires access to the Hauwei support download page from a computer.
The user downloads the corresponding management software that matches the tablet make and model. The user connects the tablet to the computer using the tablet's PC data cable or charging cable. When the computer recognizes the connection, the user manually begins the manager software. This process resets the tablet and allows the user to choose a new lock screen pattern, passcode or skip these options and select the codes at a later time. If the user decides to use a password or screen-lock pattern in the future, they can access the setup utility through the settings application on the tablet.
