Forgot pin on Samsung Galaxy Prime?

Please help me unlock my pin.I just got it yesterday

Ad

put my pin one too many times and my Samsung Galaxy is locked

Pull the battery to do a soft reset. Then attempt the pin again until you see Forgot Password and use your Google Account. If this fails, you will have to hard reset the device. Also, if you did not sync your Google Account or it has not fully completed a sync, then it will not work to bypass the pin. You can also try Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your device if you registered with the Samsung App or website and synced the account.

If you do not want to lose data completely, you can attempt to see if you can hook up the device to a PC but usually, the lock screen prevents it. If you can't click Forgot Password and use your Google Account when you hard reset your phone and put your Google Account in, it will reset to the last sync point for your Google Accounts so that means you will at least restore your phone contacts. You can also try Samsung's Find My Mobile, but it may be tied to the previous Google Account when you setup the device the first time.

Well, you will have to hard reset the device then. After that, go to YouTube and search Bypass Google FRP (Your device name like Moto X Play). You will need this if you have Lollipop 5.0 or Marshmallow 6.0 OS. The first Google Account is the Owner Account unless you manually change the assignment role later.

I set a pin lock on my phone, and I can't get into it now. how can I reset pin code and not lose anything?

I need to reset lock pin. It says my detail is too short so I'm just typing this to take up space. I have tried: Searching online to get info on how to reset passcode

You can't retrieve a pin code because that would essentially make the security of the pin useless. There are no magic codes. You can use your Google Account but as a last resort you would have to hard reset the device. Now some phone manufacturer's like Samsung allow you to login to their location pages like Find My Mobile for Samsung and unlock your device remotely. This assumes you have data enabled and that you registered your device with them before you try to use their program.

How to reset my pin password for my phone without deleting any data or pictures and files in phone?

My screen lock says it is secured with a pin but I didn't set one up and just want it to be a swipe action?

Did you authorize any third party apps like Kaspersky Internet Security to be able to access your security settings? There are several third party apps for security locks or even have ads in them for other apps. If you are not paying attention you could do that. Also, if your phone screen was active during a phone call, you may have activated the pin. Try 0000 or 1234. They might work. Then see if you can use your Google Account or Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your device. Just as a preventive measure, new phone's should always have a pin setup like your ATM PIN code as prevention for situations like this.

It can take up to 30 attempts before you finally see the Forgot Password link. If you do not have data or WiFi enabled, then the Google Account will not unlock the device. Go to your Google Account on the PC. Under My Account, there is a section for 2 Step Verification. Make sure this is disabled
