Now many people would use Android phone for its fantastic features and extendable functions. For example, you can download an app from App store so that you can have an online meeting for free. But have you ever imagined that you can create a Windows password reset disk with an Android phone? You would find this to be very helpful when you just forget a computer login password and not other accessible computers. Now I would show you how to create a Windows password reset disk with an Android phone.
Here we should use the iSunshare Windows password genius for Android which also abbreviate to WPGenius to create a Windows password reset disk.
Now there are some preparations we should pay attention to: A rooted Android phone, a USB flash drive which has 200M free space or more and an OTG cable.
Why we ask a rooted Android phone?
Because if the phone is not rooted, the system would block the WPGenius’ installation on the phone while saying that the app comes from unknown sources. We promise that the WPGenius would not do harm to your phone and data security.
Why we need a USB drive with 200M free space or more?
Because the size of the password reset media requires it. If the USB has no enough free space, the creation of a password reset disk may fail.
Why we need an OTG cable?
Typically, you can’t connect a USB flash drive to a phone. But with the help of OTG cable, you can do it.
