Hi I have forgotton my passcode  to unlock my phone and other settings. I can still use my fingerprint to open my phone but at some point my phone will turn off and then I will need my passcode to unlock. I tried to reset to factory settings but j need to passcode to do this. Great security but I am worried that my phone will soon be unusable once I am unable to use my fingerprint to unlock it. Any suggestions welcome! 

Thank you 

Helen

When you put the passcode in wrong a few times it should say "forgot passcode" and allow you to sign in with your Google account details 😊

If you have a PC log into Find My Mobile in your Samsung account you can unlock it from there.

hi there a bit annoying? this happened to my mate. he had to reset his. I would just go on to the phone back up everything pit in an ad card transfer it all then. I would factory reset. by either spamming the password or by connecting to a pc. if not though you could use smart unlock to keep it unlocked near a speaker or your house or even when you are walking.

No, you don't need your pass, once in the phone you can change it.
