You have two options for an S6 smartphone connected to the Internet: resetting the password via your Google credentials and Samsung credentials.

If you use a Samsung account, then navigate to Find My Mobile. Enter your credentials. Then, just ascertain that your smartphone has been selected in the upper-left corner. Under "Protect my device", click "Lock my screen". Then, click "Unlock". Reboot your smartphone.

Can I retrieve pictures from my phone without factory reset?

Hi. I have a Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and it is not accepting the pin code I just set on it. I've tried to bypass through Google, and I have also tried Samsung Find My Phone but I had not accessed Samsung from my phone so that does not work. Do I have any other options besides a factory reset? I have some pretty important photos and files that I do not want to lose. Is it possible to move them to an alternate location even with the phone being locked? That is acceptable as well. Please help!. I have tried: I've tried Android Device Manager reset. I have tried Samsung Find My Phone (but I had not accessed the app from my phone so it does not work).. I think it was caused by: I am unsure. This was my very first time trying to use pin lock on my phone. Within seconds of creating the pin lock, I tried to use it to get into my phone and it will not accept my pin.
