forgot samsung galaxy password or pin

Issue

Forgot password for Samsung Galaxy. Can't unlock Samsung Galaxy smartphone with passcode. Pin code not working on Samsung Galaxy. Locked out of Samsung and can't unlock. Forgot Pin.

Solution

If you are locked out of your Samsung smartphone and can't remember your password or pin code, the following three steps are your only options to accessing your device:

  • If you have access to the Google account and password that is set-up on your device, see if you can unlock your smartphone through the Android Device Manager

  • If you log into Android Device Manager and your smartphone isn't there, try entering the wrong password into your phone and it might ask you to unlock it by entering your Google account password


  • If it does not prompt you for your Google account, then the only way to unlock your device is to perform a hardreset and wipe it completely.
