Hi, I recently changed my password on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1?

Unfortunately I made it a long one and forgot it the next day. How can I unlock it without losing my data?

Whether or not you can unlock your tablet without losing all of your data depends on whether you logged into a Google account on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. If you did, enter the wrong password up to 20 times until your tablet asks you for your Google account information. Enter it; your tablet will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password. If you have forgotten your Google account information, go to this Google site to try to recover it. If you are unable to retrieve your Google account information, your tablet doesn't ask for your Google account, or if you never signed into one to begin with, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset on your tablet to unlock it. This will, unfortunately, wipe all of your tablet's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password; in addition, be sure to write down the password you set for your device so that, in the event that you forget it in the future, you will be able to unlock your tablet to change it to something that is easier to remember for you.

Hello, thank you for your time. I was just wondering, my friend has forgotten her password for lock screen and Gmail due to changing so many times, Is there anyway we can back up photos, contacts, etc. before performing a factory reset?
