Can't remember 4 digit Samsung tablet pin?

I want to be able to get into my Samsung tablet. The password is a 4 digit number, and I am certain it doesn't start with 0, or have any repeating numbers. I want to be able to enter credentials somewhere to change my password, but I can't figure out how to do it.

If you see a timer on the device telling you how long you have to wait before trying the PIN again then you are in luck. You simply have to wait for the allotted time to pass and then enter the password again. If this is not the issue then you can try entering your Google email and password to try and reset the password. If a Google account was never set up for the tablet then try entering four 0s as in 0000. If you still do not have success then you may have to perform a hard reset, which means that unless you saved your data on a SIM card, data saved on the device could be wiped.be wiped.

I have a Verizon tablet that I got about a year ago. I set a pin code up but forgot what I used. I have not used it for about 5 months and thought I knew what code I used but I guess not as it does not work?
