There is no way to reset your passcode if you have forgotten it unless you go through Samsung Find My Mobile or use your Google Account to sign into the phone and then from there disable the lock and go back into Settings to select Clear Credentials. This should delete the passcode but you will also want to put your phone into Recovery Mode and select Wipe Cache Partition and then Wipe Dalvik Cache. This would completely delete any security data but not delete pictures, images etc. Do not reset your passcode through Google because your device will be suspended for 72 hours as an anti-theft measure.

I have locked myself out of my Samsung Galaxy S5 on last attempt before all gets wiped out help?

Can I get in without losing all data. I have tried: I tried to get in from an unblock pin from my account and did not work. I think it was caused by: I forgot my pin

You should have seen the prompt by now to use your Google Account. At this point, use Samsung's Find My Mobile to remotely unlock the device. You can change your pin through Samsung Find My Mobile but it sometimes takes several attempts before it works. Reboot your phone each time to see if Samsung syncs the new password before you try again.

Can't seem to remember the password to my Samsung Note5. My phone isn't registered on Samsung either. Please, how do I unlock it?

I restarted my phone and as required, I have to use the password instead of the usual fingerprint. But then I have entered my password several times and didn't work. I have even been asked to try again in 30 minutes. Please help. My phone is not registered with Samsung, neither do I have the find my phone app account.
