Hi @userVig2tATF3J 


If you not able to unlock your device through find my Samsung it means that the remote capabilities weren't turned on from the phone and unfortunately the only way to get back into the device would be through a factory reset. Keep in mind that there is also a Google lock on your phone and after the reset you will have to know the Google info to get through the initial setup of the phone. If this helped you please like and mark as solved.
