Android Device Manager
An instant way to unlock an android phone is to use the Android Device Manager. You need to login into your Google account to use this route. This feature can work only on the most modern phones. You can access this feature from any device you have a preference.

If the device manager is not able to pick up your phone, to get there you can refresh the page for a few times. The hard refresh feature (CTRL + F5) will clear your cache too.
