Is it possible to unlock Google Pixel without a passcode?

Yep, you bet. There are a bunch of ways to get back into your Google Pixel phone, even if you’ve totally blanked on the passcode. Whatever method you go for, you’ll need to do a factory reset on your Google Pixel. So, it’s crucial to back up your phone beforehand because it’ll help you get all your stuff back after the reset. If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy, make sure you back it up too, so you don’t lose any data.

If you’ve got your fingerprint, pattern, or face unlock set up on your Google Pixel, you can get into your phone without needing the passcode. Plus, you won’t have to do a factory reset on your Google Pixel. But remember, these tricks only work if you’ve already set them up before forgetting your passcode. If you didn’t do that, no worries, just follow the more advanced methods to unlock your Google Pixel.

How to unlock a Google Pixel without a passcode

You’ve got three next-level tricks to unlock your Google Pixel without needing the passcode. Let’s go through each one step by step.

Using the Pixel Repair tool

The Pixel Repair Tool is an official tool designed for updating, not unlocking, Google Pixel phones. But you can still do a factory reset, which eventually gets your device unlocked without needing a passcode. The cool thing about the Pixel Repair tool is that it installs the latest Android version after resetting your phone, something the other methods we talk about in this guide can’t do.

  • Open any web browser on your PC and go to the Pixel Repair tool website.
  • Scroll down and click “Get Started.”
  • Turn off your phone.
  • On the “Prepare your Pixel phone” page, click “Next.”
  • Press and hold the power and volume down buttons on your phone until it turns on, entering Fastboot mode.
  • Use the volume buttons to navigate to “Rescue Mode” and select it by pressing the power button.
  • Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable.
  • Return to the Pixel Repair website and click “Connect phone.”
  • Click “Factory reset and reinstall.”
  • Finally, select “Confirm.”
