  1. I have an SIII Galaxy running Android KitKat 4.4. The problem I have is that I installed an app which encrypts the data with a password to reboot. Company came, and I FORGOT the password! Now, all I can do is boot into SAFEMODE.

    But even then, I'm still blocked by the necessity to renter a password! So....what can I do next? I am blocked from going any further. HELP!!
