When a screen-lock (pattern, PIN or password) is lost or forgotten, an Android powered device can be hard reset to restore factory defaults and thereby clear the lost of forgotten screen-lock credentials together with all user data and apps. While there exist few other key combinations used by different manufacturers on different Android device models, there is a combination that is used by most Android model. Scroll to the answer sections below for the steps on this reset key combination.
