If you’ve forgotten your Samsung Android device’s PIN or passcode, there’s no need to panic. As long as you have access to a browser and your Samsung account, you can recover access to your Samsung phone in two simple steps.

For recovery, you’re going to use the Samsung Find My Mobile feature. In addition to resetting your passcode, you can also use it to locate your phone on a map, make it ring, lock it, or erase all the data on the device.

How it works: Fire up your browser of choice and go to Samsung’s Find My Mobile service. You’ll be prompted to log into your Samsung account. If you haven’t logged into the service before, it may take a minute or two to locate your phone.

In the menu, click the more button and scroll down to the Unlock button. When you click it, a little popup will appear prompting you to enter your Samsung password. Once you’ve entered it, you’re phone will be unlocked, and whatever passcode you were using on your phone will be removed.

Unfortunately, other Android phones don’t have this option available to them. While you can remotely lock or wipe your phone using the Android Device Manager, unlocking the phone is not among these features. If you’ve forgotten your passcode, you’re going to need to use the Android Device Manager to factory reset your phone.

    Wrong information, you can't reset the lock with android device manager. Please correct your post. you can only set a password if no lock is set on the device before
