    I have forgotten my one plus 7 mobile screen unlock pattern , when I try to reset the password it is asking for the confirmation to proceed that the data will be lost .

    Is there a way to reset without losing the data , please suggest

    Hi there Vinod,

    No there isn't. The phone is encrypted, so to reset the password, all data will be lost. There may be some that can be retrieved if you had a Google account set up (contacts, messages, photos and installed apps), depending on how you set your phone.

    Yeah, it would be best to try and remember the unlock pattern.

    You never used any alternative unlock? Normal procedure would require regular use of secondary unlock methods even when using fingerprint. A certain timeout after only having use fingerprints for some time, every reboot and so on.

    This is totally wrong. I forgot my pattern. I reset the phone wiping my data. Now oneplus account restore is asking me pattern to restore. How is it logical.. People reset and restore their data when they forget patterns. There must be secondary way to restore. like asking email/password. Thumbs down. I will not buy Oneplus in the future
