Hi and thanks for using JustAnswer.
Unfortunately, you will have to reset your device to get back into it, as its an unlicensed device so you cannot use a linked Google Account to get in.
Follow these steps, and you will have a tablet that is in the same state it was in when you first turned it on:

  • Power the device completely off
  • Press down and hold in the Back Button and then press and also simultaneously hold the Power Button
  • Continue to hold both buttons in until you see the Android logo with a Triangle on the screen and let go
  • Now press the Back Button once to get to the Recovery Menu
  • Press the Home/Menu Button to highlight the Wipe Data/Factory Reset option
  • Press the Back Button to select that option
  • Highlight the option Yes - Delete all user data and press the Back Button to select it
  • Once it completes, choose and select reboot system now

Now you have a brand new tablet.

If you have any further questions or this solution does not resolve the issue, please feel free to let me know...
