Introduction

!!! Factory reset will erase all your personal information !!!

If you forgot you password, pattern drill, the are three ways to bypass the security:

- You can log-in on your phone by Google account registered on this phone. You must be connected to a WiFi network that you have used before. .

- By entering Backup PIN, if you had created one before.

Finally, you can do factory / hard reset. By doing this you will erase all personal information from the phone and you will back it to its original factory state.

You have to use the factory reset option if you forgot your password. Then i just bailed out of all the signing up for all the crap and got to the home screen, and now the phone is unlocked and no password.

If it's asking for samsung password then go to samsung.com because either the previous owner or you when you got your phone registered this device through Samsung for warranty purposes. Once in samsung.com you can call chat or enter

Any email addresses you've used since you've had the phone. The email address is username and if it recognizes any of those then you can simply reset your password and that's what you will use on your phone. Otherwise just call samsung.com give them your IMEI number for them to pull it up and they can reset it the password for you. That the factory reset instructions above does work. I had to do it about 3 times because I either didn't have all three buttons held at the same time or accidentally let off of one without realizing it or didn't let off of the power button when I should had. Once you get to the reboot page there are two different options for wiping data definitely pick the one that is wipe all data factory reset.

If it freezes take the battery out about 10 seconds put it back in but do not turn on the phone. If it's still stuck on the same screen wait about 5 or 10 minutes and it will go off it may take some time. Try the factory reset steps above again. It works it just may take a few times and you will have access to your contacts and pictures if you have been saving them to some sort of cloud or Google account and if there is a Samsung account your contacts are definitely stored and other data will be too. Unfortunately I had to do this and was worried everything would be gone but Google backed everything up except some of my photos but my phone ran so much faster afterwards so it wasn't a complete loss

I would like to say happily , it worked first time I tried - following instructions to the letter! Surprisingly, all my pics and messages etc are still on the phone! Plus I did it without taking the battery out or anything.Thanks

All you need to do is start up in safe mode and there will be a password reset at the start up. To go into safe mode hold your power button until the Samsung logo pops up then release and hold volume down button until your start screen pops up then you're in safe mode.

Lucious Nicole -

I did a factory hard reset, and it requires me to enter my samsung account information. I know what that information is, but for some reason samsung has no record of me! I don't think it will do me any good to re-do the factory hard reset. I'm being told I now have a paper weight. Any other ideas to bypass this?

Is there a way to get into the phone without losing the data that's already on it. I'm trying to get access to text messages?

You can also enter the wrong pin 10 times. The phone will erase and return to factory reset.

Pero luego de eso recuerda que hay que ingresar la cuenta de Google. Y sino la recuerdas tienes que hacerle bypass, yo lo hago con OTG y el apk instalado en una USB es bastante sencillo y lo eh probado hasta con el S6 edge. Igual gracias por tu aporte
