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

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. 

Regards B

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

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

Hi TeresaD,

I have a Note 20 Ultra that I somehow forget the 4 digit pin I set.  Each time I attempt to try a code it keeps extending the lock out time.  I am now at wait 2 hrs.  

Is there a point where it will resent to ) attempts tried?  Will it eventually ask me for my google account to allow me in or do I need to factory reset?

Can I force it to ask for my google account?

I have been using a NordPLus while waiting to get this phone repaired, It would be best if I could syncs the two devices after getting it unlocked so only new data is transfered from the temp phone I am using. 

Is any of this possible?  Can I at least back up the phone before restoring it?
