That option is turned off by default. If you did turn it on you will have 15 attempts before the device factory resets itself. So you should be fine if you already attempted 20 times. Hope this helps, if this answers your question please mark this as the solution.Secure lock settings exampleSecure lock settings example

Hi @Barry16 ,

 

is this referring to the phone's PIN? If so, that is strange as our phones don't come with any passcode set. Would you be able to have a look at this guide

phones don't come with a pincode , unless you've put one in , or someone else has had that phone & put a pun in it .

Hi sorry maybe I've worded this wrong what I want to know is if I choose a pincode and say for example I lose the phone how many attempts would someone get at guessing it before the phone would erase all the data.

Thank you it seems to just give a 30 second delay that doesn't increase would this get larger per more attempts I don't wanna try just incase

I cannot find a definite answer. There is a possibility that you will be required to enter your gmail password or the duration will go up. I also found another solution to unlocking your device using find my phone from your Samsung account
