I want to know after how many failed attempts the phone is permanently blocked
because if I have several attempts I can find the correct phone password
but I don't know how many attempts I have left, I have made 15 failed attempts, now I have to wait 24 hours but this is the third time I have to wait 24 hours

What is the limit of failed attempts before it is permanently blocked?

I didn't make backups so I don't want to lose my data.

I already read it and it doesn't help me, since I don't have a Samsung account, and I don't want to lose the data, I want to know how many attempts I have left, since I only forgot part of the password. Then I will create a Samsung account yes or yes

Sorry mate if you dont have a account linked you cant unlock it 😞

you have too options

1. this one is free and esy
boot the phone into safe mode and factory reset it then set it up and make a account.

2. this one isnot free and will probably end in the same result a factory reset phone go to your local phone repair shop.

@LionelMessi10: For clarity, you have 15 attempts to enter your password correctly, after which you will have to wait 24 hours before the next attempt(s).

thanks for answering, Up to what point? So, don't you have a limit on failed attempts? Only if you set it up before? So I have unlimited attempts but they have a 24 hour waiting time between each attempt?

@LionelMessi10: I'm not certain if there is a limit to the amount of times you can fail, and be blocked from trying again for 24 hours, although you should make sure to read any on-screen notifications, as this will keep you informed. If you're unable to regain access to your device, then you can arrange for a Samsung engineer to unlock it for you at one of our Service Centres. All you'll need is your proof of purchase to verify ownership, then head to samsung.com > Scroll to the bottom of the screen > Contact us, and reach out via your preferred channel for further support, where an advisor will be able to make the necessary arrangements for you.
