Sometimes you may forget the new password, PIN, or pattern that you reset recently. And you will fail to access any data or content in your Samsung phone as long as you don't unlock it. It's your top priority to remove the lock screen of your Samsung phone if you are eager to get data from it.

Now let's get right to it!

Way 1. The Easiest Way to Unlock Samsung Phone

The simplest method to unlock your Samsung phone is using Android screen unlocking software. This phone unlocking software is able to unlock Samsung, Google, Motorola, LG, and other Android phones. And for recent-released Samsung models, it will wipe all the data that is stored on your Samsung device. For some relatively old versions (such as Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Plus, S5, S5 Dios, S4, S4 Mini, and S3), you can remove the lock screen without losing data. In addition, the unlocking process is extremely fast in a few minutes.

The unlocking instructions are very simple as follow:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiUnlock. To unlock Samsung without password, PIN, or pattern lock, choose Remove Screen Lock from the main interface.

Launch Phone Unlocker

Step 2. Choose Samsung among the phone brands. Afterward, follow the unscreen instructions to enter Recovery Mode on your phone to unlock the Samsung phone without password, PIN, or pattern lock.

You may want to try Samsung data recovery software to recover data that is deleted. But it's not available to recover data that is wiped due to a factory reset. And there is no recommended way to recover files erased in a factory reset process. But you are able to back up your data before a factory reset when you can access your phone.

Way 2. How to Factory Reset Samsung Without Password

An alternative option for a piece of unlocking software is a factory reset. Keep in mind that a factory reset will delete everything that is stored on your Samsung phone, including contacts, music, videos, photos, and other essential data. But the Android operating system will not be deleted. You just reset your Samsung phone to its factory settings to remove the lock screen by applying Wipe Data/Factory Reset on Android. Now follow us to factory reset your Samsung phone:

Step 1. Power off.

Step 2. Press the Volume Up/Down and the Power buttons to enter the Recovery Mode.

Step 3. Select Wipe data/factory reset.

Step 4. Then select Factory data reset > Reboot system now to start the data reset.
