Hi, my mom has passed and I'm trying to get into her phone and it has a digit password but I don't want to factory reset it. Is there anyway to just unlock it?

The digit password is unlimited. I want as many memories as possible of her and this phone could have an answer to how she died and I really need help please, and thank you. I have tried: Putting in all possible passwords it might be.. I think it was caused by: She died and can't tell me the password

This is tough because you probably do not know her Google Account and password to use that option. You could try ADB tools to bypass the pinlock. One thing to try is to call her phone from another phone. Answer the call and try to access the Settings to disable the lock while on the phone call. You did not mention what type of phone your mother had but put her phone and the phrase "unlock password" into YouTube search. See if there are any solutions there for you. iPhones are easy to bypass for instance. So check out some videos.

If you are unsure of their methods, go online and find someone that works on tablets and phones. Request their help as they should be able to unlock the phone without you losing data or at least help you back up data even though the phone is locked.

Go to Google Accounts Recovery to try to figure out what the Gmail was. Your tablet has Lollipop or Marshmallow as the OS and this is why you still need to put in the Google Account credentials.

I forgot my Samsung S7 edge pin and password. I can't open it. How can I open my phone without factory reset?

Android Device Manager DOES NOT unlock a device. With Samsung, you can use Samsung Find My Mobile to remotely unlock the Samsung S7 Edge. Use your Google Account or Samsung Account linked to the device and then remotely unlock the phone. As long as data or WiFi are enabled this method will work. You can also use your Google Account after several attempts. You will get the warning of a 30 second time out and then be given the option to use your Google Account. Even if you hard reset this device you will still need that Google Account.

Please recover my phone pin lock without phone reset?

Please recover my phone pin lock without phone reset

There is no way to recover a pin. You can use your Google Account to login on the phone but even then you will not recover your pin. If you reset your pin through Google then your device will be frozen for 72 hours as a security measure. Use your Google Account and then disable the pinlock. If you put the phone into recovery you can Wipe Cache which often disables security features.

How do I unlock my phone without reset, I don't have the backup pin and its not accepting my Google ID and password?

When it asked me to put the pin I accidentally put a wrong number and forgot it.. I have tried: Turn off and restart.. I think it was caused by: I think I put the wrong password, but I know it.

If it is not accepting your Google Account then you probably have 2 step verification enabled. To remove this, login on the PC to your Google Account. Under My Account you will see the security options and from there can disable the 2 step. Wait about 30 minutes for the changes to sync to your device after you turn the phone off and on again. Then attempt your Google Account again.
