Samsung galaxy S8 forgotten pin

Been using my fingerprint to get into my phone but I cannot remember my pin code and I know you need it to unlock your phone if it restarts. Is there any way to find out what it is without completely restoring the phone to factory settings?

Hi @Hanmew27

If you have a Samsung Account registered to your phone then you can use Find My Mobile on your home computer to regain access to the device remotely: https://findmymobile.samsung.com/login.do. Simply sign in with your associated account details and look for the option to unlock the phone on the right hand menu.

I had registered my phone, but it's showing no known devices! What now - no option if I can't type in the right PIN? Asinine to limit the amount of entries! I should be able to override using my Google Account as it's linked to my phone, right?? Maddening!!
