Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Asus Zenfone 5
  2. Firmware Version: n/a :(
  3. Rooted or not: no
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: n/a
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): n/a

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


This April I've stopped using my Asus Zenfone 5. Now I need data stored on it, but I've forgotten the PIN and the phone does not turn on Wi-fi on start, so I can't unblock it using my Google account. There are 5 tries left... Is there a way, legal or not, to access Wi-fi settings from the block screen?

Also if there is a way to get access to data without logging in, please let me know.

Have a good day and don't forget your PINs!
