A52 5G Forgotten Password and it will not go to Factory Reset option

Hi,

My daughter got a new #A52 5G phone. She set up a password and cannot remember it at all! I have been trying for hours to get it to do a factory reset but when it powers back on it just goes back to the lock screen. It's driving me mad!

 

Any tips? I have watched lots of YT videos but it's just not playing ball.

Thanks

@Members_orJKEX4: If you sign in to Find My Mobile via the link below using the Samsung Account that's registered to the phone, then you can remotely unlock it from here, without the need for a factory reset. I hope this helps.

last resort would be taking it to a local repair shop

So I tried find my mobile but it looks like it wasn't linked to my Samsung account.  I've also found it on Google Find My Device but it appears her A52s is in flight mode too so not showing as active - last seen 3 days ago although it's right here in front of me switched on and charged.  I've tried messing with the password in the hopes I might get a forgotton password prompt but it's telling me to wait for 29 seconds and try again.

She's had this phone less than a week so I can't give up on it!

Hi, I've got the same issue.

Did you resolve it?

If so can you please tell me how you did it.

As I just opened the box and started the phone. It updated to android 12, restarted then it asked me for a password.I haven't set up a password for it.
