Questions and Answers

How do I override the alternative password code?

Now I can't get it to work. The alternative password I keyed in doesn't work now and I know I'm keying in the correct one. How do I override that and put in a new alternative password code?

The only way you can override your phone's password if it isn't accepting your fingerprint is to enter the wrong password until your phone prompts you for your Google account. Enter it; your phone will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this site to try to recover it. If you didn't log into a Google account, or if you can't recover your information using that link, you will have to perform a Factory Reset to get back into your Galaxy S5. Keep in mind that this procedure will delete all of your data from your phone. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, follow the steps in this great VisiHow article.

Trying to set fingerprint security?

Trying to set fingerprint security. It asks me to "Enter a backup password" Everything I try returns "Sorry, try again" Is there a specific length etc required?. I have tried: Numbers, letters (both case) and a combination of the both, all 6 to 10 chars long. I think it was caused by: No idea
