  • Hi and thanks for posting!

    If you connect a USB mouse to the ActivConnect G-Series you should be able to use this to hold the left click and swipe up to uinlock, once its unlocked it should stay that way.

    We have an enhancement request open for this and we hope it will be removed from a future update.

    Please let us know if this works for you.

    Kind Regards,
    Paul

    Hi, the same happened to me after updating the ActivConnect G-Series the device is locked and every time I swipe using a mouse it ask for password, I don't remember setting any password before upgrading.

    I just recently bought it and I can't use it for anything.

    Looking forward to your response. Thank you.

    Hello, I am a school tech and we have an ActivConnect G that has become password locked as well. Teacher doesn't remember setting a password and has not been able to figure it out.

    Is there a way to reset the device's password? I tried to use Android Device Manager, but that would not update the screen lock password, and I did not want to remotely erase device if there was another way.

    Thanks for any help provided.

    I am a school tech and we are having the same problem.  My Principal's brand new ActivConnect G-series is locked and no one remembers setting it.  I tried plugging in a mouse and left clicking to see if I could unlock it but it didn't work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and thanks for posting.

    Is the ActivConnect asking for a password or is it just "locked"?  If it is locked without a password, you should be able to unlock it with an upwards swipe?  If this is not working please ensure that the USB cable is connected to the corresponding "Touch USB" port.

    If it is prompting for a password, then the only way to get around this is a full factory reset.  

    We look forward to hearing back from you.

    Kind Regards,
    Paul

    When I turned on the ActivPanel Gseries this morning it showed a lock button and said swipe to unlock. When I would swipe a camera would show up in the middle of the screen. I finally got it to go away, but now it won't let me go anywhere and is asking for a PIN. I've started this thing many times in the couple of weeks I've had it and it has never done this. I don't have a PIN and can't get to my home screen. Help!

    Now after turning it on/off there is a lock button and it says "charged" above it and I can't do anything.

    Hi Pam,

    I am not able to reset using this method. The owner account is the one with the pin on it. When I log-in with my Google account I do not have the option to select Backup & reset in the Personal section.
    Thank-you!
