   These days, a lot of phones have the Android OS. For security, the user has the option to either put a password, puzzle, or pin to lock the phone. If I do not know this password, how would I remove this?

Of course.

 

Due to the open, public nature of this forum however, any assistance given to help you circumvent security measures, even if it is for legitimate purposes, would then be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes.

In other words according to the forum rules:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.


And a mobile device lock screen would be considered a security measure.
