Good evening @Blkburner, I hope you're doing well.

There are two ways to reset your pin.

The first way is if you have a Samsung account tied to your phone; you'll need to login to your Samsung account in your web browser> next where it says "devices" you'll want to click there> there will be an option that says "find my mobile" from there you can locate, unlock, and lock your phone.

That would be the way to unlock it.

However: the second way if you don't have a Samsung account tied to your phone would be to reset your phone by erasing it.

This method will take your phone back to the point when your first bought it with a factory reset. (For this method, I recommend backing up your phone if you have not done so already)

To do this: Press and hold the Bixby/power button and the Volume down buttons till you see the Samsung logo> this will take you to the bootloader, from here you can navigate with your Volume rocker, to the reset option where this will completely reset your phone.

I hope this helps.

I'm sorry to hear that happened to you.

Just like iOS, Android also works that way.
