I forgot my Security PIN on my Samsung Galaxy Note 1?

I just reset a new password and have forgotten, I want the data in it. I tried all the possible codes and YouTube videos states I will lose data.

Unfortunately, the video is correct. Android devices will lock out those who attempt to access them without a proper password. This is a security feature meant to keep private data out of the hands of thieves.

Hello, I need to delete the encrypted password on my Note4?

When I decided to add my company email they required me to encrypt my email, so if the phone should be lost, they had the ability to delete all information on my phone, I have recently deleted that Google email account, but I still have to use my unlock password to get my phone to work.. I have tried: I have gone into settings, general, security, and of course now that I'm doing this, I can't see the part where it says to change security pin, I have a feeling that the company may need to do this remotely

Why is it just showing downloading on my S2?

When I go to factory reset it, it gets stuck, not frozen but stuck on downloading with the Android guy!

    The problem is that the volume-down, power, and home buttons will get your device into the download mode, which is for flashing ROMs.
