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).

If you are talking about the lock screen and not private mode, you can attempt 5 times and then use your Google Account. First, clean your screen with rubbing alcohol and then reboot the phone. Try to use your fingerprint again and see if it works. Sometimes our phones have residue on the screen that we can't see yet the sensor for the fingerprint sees it as distortion.

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.

Need to reset Galaxy note5 private mode password in fingerprint?

I want to see my private messages,but not able to open because of fingerprint password

You can't reset your password. Clean the screen as suggested above and retry the fingerprint again. Make sure your hands have no lotions or other debris on them and are not wet. Keep in mind, that the fingerprint scanner is not perfect and relatively new software on phones so the failure rate for occasional issues is high. See if your ATM pin is your backup pin. It could also be an important date such as a birthday or your address.

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.'!
