How can I reset my personal l PASSCODE?

I forgot my personal passcode on my phone how can I reset it **

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.

My phone has locked me out. It won't accept my fingerprint and I can't remember the Samsung passcode?

I need help my phone is locked won't accept fingerprint and I can't remember my Samsung passcode. I just can't get past the password. It's telling me I can try every 4 minutes. I've tried for 5 hours now I'm beyond frustrated. I have tried: Everything this computer\phone illiterate person can try. It says my phone was restarted and to give a 4 digit one letter c ode. I think it was caused by: Too many fingerprint tried with wet or slimy fingers. Then too many times with the Samsung passc ode
