    Hi there, If someone has access to my phone, can he bypass the lockscreen password and unlock it? Now i know there are many ways to do that, but my question is if he can do that withot reseting the password, in other words unnoticable, so next time i unlock as ussual, never knowing someone messed with it? Ive read a lot of threats but in all it says that you must either reset, or remove the password. Thanks for future answers :)

    pretty much no...

    they can do a 3 finger reset, FDR the phone, and then try to register it under their name....
    but, that usually won't work, as that IMEI is tied to your phone number.

    It would be best to use a pincode and 6 digits...
    no way can anyone figure that out before the 10th try reboots the phone and totally erases everything on it.

    I personally do NOT trust the fingerprint phones... and I have one of them.

    Yea i am switching to pincode, yet i was with password till now and i used to leave my phone home and i am afraid they are people who may have tried something. I wrote on the internet about an android bug which lets you to somehow crash the lockscreen ui, buy trying to apply multipe numbers or something like that, however most people on comments says it wont work.. If it works will it erase or reset the password, or it will still be on next time i try to unlock it? I dont trust fingerprint at all
