How to unlock phone if password attempts are incorrect and I don't remember the Google account email and password?

A child in our house made many attempts to unlock my phone which was locked by a pattern and now the device is asking to enter the Google account password and ID which I don't remember. What should I do?

If you don't remember your Google account information, you can try to recover it here. If you can't recover your Google account information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your data from the phone. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this awesome VisiHow how-to guide. When the reset is complete, be sure to log into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future.

How do I get access to my Samsung Galaxy S5 after locking it and forgetting the alternate password?

Hi. The fingerprint option on my Samsung Galaxy S5 is locked, as it accidentally went off too many times in my pocket, and I cannot remember my alternate password. I have no access to my phone whatsoever. Could you assist me in getting back into my phone without losing any apps, photos, etc.
