Hi the easiest option is to perform a factory reset if you do not know the password
Can you advise the make and model of your Android tablet?
Is it a Galaxy Tab 4 by chance?
I have put it back to factory settings. Its a Google Android 4.0 OS Its called an @tab
Ok so its now at factory settings is it still asking for the password?
If so does it say what password ***** is is, ie please enter your..."Encryption" password
Thank you that has worked.
