    STEP 1: When you failed in first attempt, try again.
    STEP 2: If you fails many times, this may block your account.
    STEP 3: Tap on “Start Over”.
    STEP 4: Re enter your gestures.
    STEP 5: Otherwise, tap on “Switch to Password”.
    STEP 6: Enter the password which you used when you created the account and tap on the “Submit”.
    STEP 7: Tap on “Sign in Options” and look for entering pin or security card or something else. Tap on them and follow the instructions.
