Forgot lock screen password of Note 5

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I changed the lock screen password yesterday night and now forgot it after wake up.   I didn't sign in Android Device Manager, is there any way to reset the passcode on my Note 5?

If you don't know the password/PIN/Pattern etc that you set, you will need to perform a Factory Data Reset.

1. Back up data on the internal memory. If you have signed into a Google account on the device, you have activated Anti-theft and will need your Google credentials to finish the Master reset.
2. Turn off the device.
3. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
4. When the Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds 5. before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
6. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight “wipe data / factory reset.
7. Press Power button to select.
8. Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes — delete all user data’ is highlighted.
9. Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
10. When the master reset is complete, “Reboot system now” is highlighted.
11. Press the Power key to restart the device.

Note, this will wipe your Android data without recovey, so, please be sure you've backed up everything.

Hello @userbe27vE3JDz

Short of remembering the password, the only way into the device would be a factory reset.  =/

Factory reset will delete all data on my phone, right?

Sadly yes. I hope that you can remember the password to get in without having to do that though.

1. Using Samsung Find My Mobile service to remove lock screen

I just attempted to do this and it says that it removes all data and that you might even need to log in with google or samsung anyway once the lock screen is removed. I then attempted to backup my phone so if the data is removed I can restore it, but you have to unlock the phone for it to connect to the laptop (I have a samsung note 5, but a MacOS laptop).

I did the directional lock on my phone, I know what I put because I wrote it down and it made me confirm it. It's not working and like a idiot I restarted my device so now it's giving message that I can use my fingerprint once the device has been unlocked. 

 

Is there a work around? I know they had this issue with other samsungs.
