I set up my A53 to use fingerprint recognition, added email and Network accounts etc. I turned it off and went to bed. Turned it back on, but it is asking for a password - which I had not yet set up. Any ideas how I can get back into my phone please?
@Devondumpling: Further to the above, you should have been prompted to create a pin or password when setting up your Fingerprints, as this is required as a back up, and for intermittent verification. If you're unsure of the password, please follow the link below and sign in using the Samsung account details that are registered to your Galaxy A53, and you can remotely unlock the device from here.
Thanks AndrewL. I registered my mobile in My Samsung, but it is not appearing in findmymobile. I can't remember the password, have tried everything so decided a hard reset is needed. I've run the battery down, followed the guidance but can't get the recovery menu to appear. Thinking it needs a Samsung expert's intervention.
