    My brother keeps unlocking my phone using one of those too many pattern attempt tricks. Is there a fix for this?

    There's a pin code you can set up alternatively.

    Yes, beat the crap out of your brother. Or hide your phone.

    That's crazy that the security can be bypassed that easily. You can try a 3rd party locker like Holo Locker or Magic Locker. The security can be bypassed on those just by rebooting the phone but maybe he won't figure that out and he'll give up.

    alright thanks. I'll try the pin alternative. But he reboots the phone to gain access.

    Easy solution is to hard reset the phone.But this will erase all data from your phone.

    (For Huawei Android Phones )You can reset your phone to factory settings by pressing POWER + VOLUME UP buttons at the same time.There are useful links on Youtube for your further support.
