Hopefully, depending on how you set the account up you should be able to do it via any Google service. On your computer, go to www.gmail.com enter your user name then follow the link for forgotten password. follow the steps and it should allow you to change your password.

If that is successful and you get into GMail then wait a while then try this email address and new password on your phone.

What type of phone is it, and at what point is it asking for those details (I.e lock screen, certain app access etc)?

Hi,

I've not come across this before, but as you are running an Android phone, the email address it is most likely asking for will be the one you set the phone up with. This should be a Google address ending in either @gmail.com or @googlemail.com.
