If you forget the passcode you will have to factory reset.

Factory Reset:

Shut off device. Hold Power, Vol Up, and Bixby buttons until you see the Android Mascort with Blue Background. It will prompt you options for your device after it completes its boot.

You will lose everything. If you did input a Gmail account on the phone it will lock itself during the set up process unless you have the credentials for the phone.

Good Luck.

If you cannot shut it off, Hold Power and Vol Down. This is cause the phone to reset. Once you see the screen turn off, switch to the Up, Power, Bixby. Time it right and it should trigger factory settings.

Turn it off;

Tap and hold: Volume Up, Home, Power – all at the same time;

Let go of the buttons when you see the Android icon;

Select your option with the Volume Down;

After highlighting the Factory Reset use the Power button to activate it;

Use the same two buttons to select and activate the confirmation option “Yes – Delete All User Data”;

Just wait for the smartphone to reboot with a clean memory and no password left on it.

Update (12/26/2017)

Register with Samsung;

Access the Find My Mobile service;

Temporary reset the password;

Skip the lock screen with this new password;

Set up a new password once you’re in.

Hey @kunle unnu! Just login to your Samsung account and head to Find My Mobile. You can reset your password there. To get solutions to the technical issues visit here Technology Blog

If you can bring it into a Samsung certified technician they can offer you solutions. Since this is a “software issue” it would be a free diagnosis. There are possible solutions but most involve losing your data.
