I dropped my phone and broke its display. I have resigned myself to getting a new phone but I need to unlock the phone to get retrieve my data from the old broken phone.
I was delighted to see Samsung has a way of unlocking the screen of my device remotely from a PC by logging into my SamSung account. However, I made the mistake of enabling two factor authentication to be able to log into my Samsung account. Since my phone is locked, I am unable to retrieve the code sent by text to my phone. I also do not have the emergency codes that Samsung sent me when I enabled 2-factor authentication.
Does anyone know how I can either open my broken phone without a screen or get into my old Samsung account to unlock it remotely?
In case you wonder, I created a new Samsung account to get on this forum to ask the question.
