Bypass Screen Password on a Samsung Note3 without reset?

I added a password to my Samsung Note3 yesterday. Used it without incident several times. Tried a few hours later with the same word and cannot gain access. I purchased the Dr. Phone Password Removal program. Downloaded it on my computer and began the process. Got to a certain point and was asked about the Samsung model (mine is N900V). The options include N900 (international), but not N900V. I'm hesitant to click on the N900 option because the prompt said it could "brick" my device. Dr. Phone website states that the support team is on vacation till 10/7!. . Any advice?

You should perform a factory reset to clean the smartphone with a forgotten password. Follow our generic Samsung Galaxy tutorial on how to hard-reset hand-held devices from the powered-down state.

How to override password on Samsung mobile?

My Samsung phone did an upgrade last night and when it restarted, it wanted me to enter my passcode. However, since I normally use the fingerprint functionality, I have completely forgotten my passcode because I had set it up quickly. I would like to get into my phone without resetting it, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do that.
