    Hi and welcome to Android Forums!

    Go to Settings --> Lock Screen --> Screen Lock and select Pattern Unlock. You will enter your pattern twice to confirm it. DON'T forget the pattern! Unless you have a version of Android that has a password backup, there is no way to recover from a lost PIN/Pattern except a complete wipe of the phone!

    Good luck and I hope this helps.

    It’s great to have you here :)
