Forgot password on Samsung Galaxy S2..too used to fingerprint scanner?

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 tablet about a week ago and set up the fingerprint scanner which worked awesomely. I was having some issues with some apps and my husband recommended I shut it off and turn it back on. When I did this it is prompting me for the password, which of course I don't remember because I've been using the fingerprint scanner. How do I recover my password? I tried the twenty times method and it told me to turn it off and back on and then try again, which it then prompted me for the password. I am trying to avoid a factory reset but will do if it's my only option. The twenty attempts to log in does not prompt me for my Google information, it simply tells me to shut it off and back on and try again. I have tried: I have tried about twenty passwords, shutting it off and back on. I think it was caused by: I have simply forgotten my password due to using the fingerprint too often.

I've just purchased my Samsung tab S2 and have not put a password or passcode in and it's asking for it, so I'm stuck with a brand new tablet and can't get in?

It is coming up with Unable to recognize your fingerprint. Enter your backup password to unlock the device. I have tried: Some passwords I have used in the past on my old iPad. I think it was caused by: I don't know

I have a Galaxy tab S2. Got it 2 weeks ago. I don't remember setting a password?

For the first time, it asked for a password. I have now tried so many things that I must wait 60 minutes. Sprint tech told me to enter my Google email password. I just tried that, didn't work. I have tried: Entering various passwords that I use and calling sprint. I think it was caused by: Can't think of a thing. I had not entered a password before

My Tab 2 did not ask me for Google unlock possibility after 25 wrong password entry. What is my other option without losing my data?

Hello. Thank you for helping. However, my Samsung Tab wouldn't allow the possibility of accessing my tab through Google. I do not wish to lose my stored data. What is my next step? Thank you for people like you who help people like me? Joshua. I have tried: I have tried entering the wrong password more than 30 times. Tab did not ask or allow the possibility of accessing through Google - probably because my tab is not registered with Samsung or ?. I think it was caused by: I normally do not need a password for my tab except I tried playing Candy Crush while my sister was here and I was convinced I should protect my tab with a password. Also because I had a feeling a guest tried to use my tab without permission.

How to unlock my Samsung tab 2 GT-P3110TSABTU where there is a password?

My daughter has sadly passed away in October and I didn't know she had a password on the tablet, my main concern is that she has photo's and video's that she has done of herself and I really do not want to lose them. she was only 10 years old and have tried different passwords and have tried the enter the wrong password and then access through the Google account but the tablet just keeps saying wrong password please try again in 30 seconds.. I really need to access this without losing anything on the tablet. I am unsure how to do this but people have told me just to do a factory reset which I really don't want to do. I really just want to get access to the tablet and not lose any possible photos of my daughter. I have tried: Entering the wrong password, trying any password that she might of used. I think it was caused by: My late daughter had just started using passwords on devices and I forgot to ask her for them all
