How to unlock your phone if you forget your lock screen password? Here are three ways.

1. Use your Xiaomi account password
Enter password randomly for approximately 5 times (connecting more than 4 points), a notification will pop up.

If not connected to network, after clicking "Forgot Password", click "Open network connection", then you can turn on  WLAN or data.

3. Flash Rom
If you cannot connect to network or you don't have Xiaomi account (you're advised to sign up for one btw), you can only flash rom. Turn off your phone, then long pressing Volumn up+Power enter recovery mode, select Wipe & Reset, and reboot to the latest system.
