Can't login to my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone?

Help me, please. I can't open up my Samsung Galaxy S6. I have tried: Every password I've ever had, nothing seems to work. I think it was caused by: Something wrong with the phone, it doesn't recognize my thumbprint

Samsung's Find My Mobile can remotely unlock your Samsung Galaxy S6. You will need to have created a Samsung Account on the device and synced it previously. Once you begin the process of the unlocking, make sure to keep your screen background lit so it is not in sleep mode. Your data or WiFi will also need to be enabled for this to work.

If you clicked the Forgot Password after 5 attempts and your Google Account is not working to unlock the device then you have 2 Step Verification enabled. To disable this feature, login to your Google Account on the PC. Under My Account and then Settings there will be a section on the 2 Step Verification. Disable this. Reboot your phone and wait about 20 minutes for Google to sync your new setting. Then attempt again.

Google Accounts Recovery can still help you regain your Google Account details. Go through the process and wait for the name. You can reset the password but will not get the initial password. If you do reset there may be a waiting period of 72 hours before you can use it on the phone to unlock. You could also use the Rootjunky FRP method if you hard reset your device to bypass Google initially on setup. Then create a new Google Account but this time, write it down and keep it somewhere permanent that you can access for easy recall.

Another trick for regaining your Google Account is to try to access it on the PC. For instance, Google Play on the PC might have saved your Google Account details. Perhaps if you see what the email is then you can recall what the password is.

Hi, my problem is that when I first bought this device I gave my email and it got synced and now I don't remember that email and also password, when I formatted my device I couldn't go past the first phone setup, it keeps on asking for my email and password I first signed in but I don't remember any of my password and email, is there anything with which I could skip these?

Samsung S7 phone Gmail lockout help - my son's passed away and I have no way to get into the phone?

I have my son's phone that I have been paying for years. He passed away last month and I can't get beyond his Gmail login information, which I don't have. The phone has already been reset. I have no idea what Gmail account he may have used. I tried the only one I was familiar with but no luck. I've called AT&T and Samsung with no help either. Is there anything I can do?
