unlock unknown password on Samsung Galaxy S4?

Never had one, don't know where it came from. Don't want to lose data by doing a Factory Reset.

Re: unlock unknown password on Samsung Galaxy S4?

Hello @HuckLuck

 

Unfortunately, the only way to get past a device lock screen if you don’t know or remember the password, is performing a master reset.

 

You can use Android Device Manager or try an alternate reset.

 

With your device powered off, press and hold down the Power button, Home button, and Volume up button until you see ‘Recovery booting’ at the top of the screen and the Galaxy S4 logo.

 

When Android System Recovery screen appears, press the Volume down key to scroll down until ‘wipe data/factory reset’ is highlighted.

Press the Power button to select.

Press the Volume down button to scroll down until ‘Yes – delete all user data’ is highlighted.

Press the Power button to begin the reset process.

When the Android System Recovery screen displays again, ensure that ‘reboot system now’ is highlighted, then press the Power button.

 

Thanks,

Charise

If  you have backup, you can unlock Samsung password without data loss, because we can restore from backup after unlocking Samsung.phone. Or if we want another easy way to unlock Samsung phone lock password, with the help of Eelphone Android Unlock, just within steps, we can remove the screen lock of Samsung without password.
