If you've forgotten your pass-code on your Samsung Android phone, there are a couple of things you can try to do in order to unlock your phone again. First, try unlocking your phone using your Google account information. Enter the wrong pass-code on your phone up to 20 times. Then, when your phone asks for your Google account information, enter it; your Samsung Android phone will then unlock, allowing you to remove or change the pass-code to something you can remember so you can use your phone again. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this Google website to try to recover it. If you are unable to retrieve your Google account information, your phone doesn't ask for the information, or if you never signed into a Google account to begin with, you will need to perform a Factory Reset to unlock your Samsung device. Unfortunately, this will wipe all of your phone's data to restore it to its factory settings to remove the pass-code so you can get into your phone again. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Samsung Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow how-to article. Once the Factory Reset is complete, be sure to log your Samsung Android phone into a Google account to which you know the information; this will allow you to unlock your device should you forget the pass-code again. In addition, write down your pass-code on a piece of paper so you can refer to it in the future if you forget the pass-code and your Google account. Keep the piece of paper in a safe and secure place so it doesn't become lost or stolen.
