Questions and Answers

My Galaxy accepts my finger scan but I'm still in locked mode?

My daughter somehow put S Voice in control of my phone. I am unable to do anything with my phone even though it is accepting my finger and my alternate pin


This VisiHow article titled Disable the S Voice Application on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge can help you disable the S Voice on any Galaxy device. You will want to disable this for next time she tries. Probably the lock features were not enabled to unlock with S Voice. First, call your phone from another phone and try to access the home screen to disable the S Voice. Otherwise, you will have to hard reset. Use Kies to backup important data first before you hard reset.
