If you saved data into folders then you can share them to an external SD card. Otherwise, you have to keep attempting the password until you get the option to use your backup pin. The only other way to get around this is a hard reset. Samsung built in Privacy Mode as an extra step in securing images or files. There is no access workaround like Google Accounts if you forget your lockscreen password.

Password reset on Galaxy 6 edge?

My wife put a password on my secret mode of my Galaxy 6 Edge. Is it possible for me to learn this password without her knowing?. I have tried: I guessed only one password, and it was wrong. I think it was caused by: She knows I used a private browser.

Resetting the private mode password from outside of the private mode seems to be not possible. If you want to reset your password, you will need to reset your device to the factory default settings or work without the private mode at all. You can learn how to reset your Samsung S6 Edge here: "How to reset Samsung Galaxy S5" (it is applicable to S6 Edge as well).

Hard reset your phone. This is the only way to get past Privacy Mode. Next time use a password you are familiar with or right it down. You will lose your data but at least be able to use your Note5 again.

How to take the personal data from private menu of Samsung Galaxy alpha?

I know the password in private mode of Samsung Galaxy alpha , when I try to open the private mode it always shows try again later, try again later? I checked my setting that there is no runtime or Dalvik option in that developer option in setting menu. Give me the solution sir? I have tried: Many time rebooted, no use of it.. I think it was caused by: I applied the password more than 4 times wrongly and on the 5th time I applied correctly, it shows the message on the screen 'try again later.'!
