I find it very strange that an update encrypted your phone. I know the feature exists but you have to manually set it up. Your phone is encrypted by default. This is an extra layer that prevents Android from booting untill set password has been put in.

You can try your unlock code/password/pattern.

If you don't know the password there is no way to circumvent it. You can consider your data as lost. Maybe flashing the bootloader and firmware will make your phone usable again. But retrieving your data is going to be difficult/nearly impossible.

SOLUTION if you have setup a pattern pin lock you have to convert the pattern to numbers. So if you drew a Z in a 3x3 area from top to bottom the password would be 1235789.

Hope this makes sense and helps someone.

Worked for me.

Thanks, it works for me too, but how to change this pattern or password?

Oh my goodness, I’m so thankful I found your comment. That did the trick for me. I still had to find out the number of dots on the grid (3 by 3 dots), so I could number it correctly. I should’ve been able to tell from the numbers sequence you provided, but I was a little panicked, lol. You would think Samsung would give some guidance like this for anyone that does a pattern.
