We protect our private photos and texts from nosy kids (or stalkers) by locking our phones. Having unauthorized people look at your photos, read your emails, or otherwise gain access to your private information is a major concern. However, what happens if you lose your pattern or PIN and are unable to use your phone? Could it be that someone else altered the lock screen pattern on your phone, causing you annoyance?
We have tested the following methods to unlock a locked Samsung device without the original pattern, PIN, password, or fingerprint.
Solutions 1: Use the ‘Find My Mobile’ feature on Samsung Phone
The “Find My Mobile” feature may be found on all Samsung handsets. Try ‘Find My Mobile’ before going through the hassle of trying to unlock the Samsung S22/s9 or Samsung note 9 if you’ve forgotten your password. The instructions below will show you how to circumvent the Samsung lock screen pattern, PIN, password, and fingerprint.
Step 1: Create an account and sign in to your Samsung device.
Step 2: Select the “Lock My Screen” option.
Step 3: Reset the PIN in the first field.
Step 4: click the “Lock” button at the very bottom.
Step 5: In a few minutes, it will switch over to using your PIN as the lock screen password.
Solution 2: Use Android Device Manager to Bypass Samsung Password
Make sure Android Device Manager is turned on before attempting to use it to get into a locked Samsung phone.
Step 1: access google.com/android/devicemanager from any other Android device or a computer.
Step 2: Visit google.com and sign in using the same Google account that was used to lock the device.
Step 3: From the ADM dashboard, select the device you wish to unlock.
Step 4: Select the “Lock” button.
Step 5: No recovery code is required at this time. Simply click “Lock” once more.
Step 6: A confirmation with “Ring,” “Lock,” and “Erase” buttons will appear if it was successful.
Step 7: Enter your new password into the password area on your phone.
Step 8: The eighth step is to change the lock screen password back to something permanent.
Solution 3: Google Login (Supports Only Android 4.4 or Lower)
How to quickly remove password protection from your Samsung mobile running Android 4.4 or earlier.
Step 1: First, make five attempts to enter the incorrect pattern.
Step 2: Select “Forgot Pattern”
Step 3: Enter your Google Account login or backup PIN
Step 4: Now that you know how to unlock your phone, go ahead and do so.
Solution 4: ‘Pattern Password Disable’ and Custom Recovery (SD Card needed)
This way of getting around the Samsung lock screen is best suited for those who are comfortable with technical terms like “custom recovery” and “rooting.” You must have an SD card and set up any customer recovery on your phone. If the phone is locked and you need to transfer a ZIP file, you can only do so with an SD card.
Step 1: First, transfer a zip file to your Samsung’s SD card from your computer; it will be called “Pattern Password Disable.”
Step 2: Place the card inside the device.
Step 3: Power up the gadget again and enter recovery mode.
Step 4: Restart the phone after flashing the file from the card.
Step 5: now your phone will start up without a lock screen. Do not fret if you have a password or gesture lock. Any arbitrary motion or password will do to unlock it.
Solution 5: Delete the Password File Using ADB
Another choice that requires prior USB Debugging activation on the device and ADB access from your computer. This method of bypassing Samsung’s security measures is recommended if you match the above criteria.
Step 1: Use the USB cable to link your device to the computer, then navigate to the ADB folder and launch the command prompt there. Press “Enter” after typing “adb shell rm /data/system/gesture. the key.”
Step 2: The second step is to restart your phone, and the secure lock screen should disappear. Set a new password, pattern, or PIN before you reboot.
Solution 6: Factory Reset to Bypass Samsung Lock Screen
If none of those steps worked, a factory reset is usually your best bet. The specific steps to take depend on the sort of device you’re using. In most gadgets, the first step is to power off the device entirely. However, after performing a factory reset, all of your important data will be lost.
Step 1: First, press and hold the volume down key while holding the power button. The Bootloader menu will appear.
Step 2: Select “Recovery Mode” by hitting the “Power” button after pushing the volume-down button twice.
Step 3: To enter “recovery” mode, hold down the power button and tap “Volume Up” once.
Step 4: Using the volume controls, select the “Wipe Data/Factory Reset” option.
Step 5: Click the power button to choose it.
Step 6: Once everything is finished, go to Step 6 and click “Reboot System Now.”
Frequently making a backup of your Samsung phone is a must in case you ever lose any of your data.
Method 7: Boot into Safe Mode
You’re probably using a third-party lock screen application. Good news: this is the most reliable method for getting past the Samsung security screen. To be more specific, Android Safe Mode is an option when starting up your Samsung device.
Step 1: First, unlock the device and navigate to the Settings app, where you’ll find the Power menu.
Step 2: You’ll be prompted to choose whether or not to boot in safe mode. Tap “OK”
Step 3: The third-party app’s lock screen will be momentarily disabled once the operation is complete.
Step 4: The fourth step is to delete the third-party lock screen app or to just clear the data.
Step 5: Reboot your device and exit safe mode.
Step 6: the obnoxious software that occupied the lock screen has been deleted.
Solution 8: Call your Locked Phone to Bypass Samsung Password
Step 1: First, borrow a friend’s phone so they may make a call to yours while it’s locked.
Step 2: Answer the call and hang up without pressing the back button.
Step 3: Third, use this access to its full potential and use the device in whatever way you like.
Step 4: Fourth, access the device’s security menu and delete the pattern or pin.
Step 5: Fifth, if you don’t know the correct PIN, you can guess and enter any possible combinations you can think of.
Next time you don’t want to forget your password or PIN, write it down somewhere safe like a text file or a piece of paper. Dr.Fone – Screen Unlock is a useful tool if you need to get through the Samsung lock screen pattern, PIN, password, or fingerprint (Android). It is a specialized program that can unlock your phone from fingerprints, patterns, and passwords without erasing any of your information.
