It can take up to 30 attempts before you finally see the Forgot Password link. If you do not have data or WiFi enabled, then the Google Account will not unlock the device. Go to your Google Account on the PC. Under My Account, there is a section for 2 Step Verification. Make sure this is disabled

Did you authorize any third party apps like Kaspersky Internet Security to be able to access your security settings? There are several third party apps for security locks or even have ads in them for other apps. If you are not paying attention you could do that. Also, if your phone screen was active during a phone call, you may have activated the pin. Try 0000 or 1234. They might work. Then see if you can use your Google Account or Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your device. Just as a preventive measure, new phone's should always have a pin setup like your ATM PIN code as prevention for situations like this.

How do I bypass forgotten 4 digit code on my cell?

Don't know my passcode or Google account info connected to cellphone when it was connected to cellphone during initial setup

Well, you will have to hard reset the device then. After that, go to YouTube and search Bypass Google FRP (Your device name like Moto X Play). You will need this if you have Lollipop 5.0 or Marshmallow 6.0 OS. The first Google Account is the Owner Account unless you manually change the assignment role later.
