I opened my phone 2 days ago and it would not accept my password?

I have been locked out of my phone. It has decided not to accept my password. I have tried: Talked to Samsung who tried to do the ADM Google password reset but it didn't work. I talked to the carrier and they want to wipe the phone. I don't want to do that. I think it was caused by: Google

If you reset your password through Android Device Manager, you will be locked out from using the new password for 72 hours. Login to your Google Account on the PC. Go to My Account and then Security. There will be a section on 2-Step verification. Make sure that it is disabled. This would stop you from using your Google Account to bypass a pinlock even with a password change.

Also, I am surprised that Samsung did not recommend their Find My Mobile website. If you ever set up a Samsung Account on the device, you could remotely unlock it from Find My Mobile.

After about 7 attempts of the wrong password you will be given the option on a Micromax device to use your Google Account to login. You may have to double tap the phone to type in your credentials for your Google Account.

For S5 recovery via Gmail, is 'revoke' access the same as 'remove account access'?

Trying to regain access to Samsung S5 after being locked out. But guidance says to 'revoke' access. In Gmail, I can only 'remove' access.. Is that the same? Thanks

Revoke access is meant for third party apps. If you are seeing this it may also mean that you have 2-Step Verification enabled and can disable that in your Google Account settings on the PC. If you even synced your Samsung Account with your phone, you can also use Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your device.
