2 Controversial Ways to Unlock Samsung Phones Without Losing Data

Except for the Google account and Find My Device/Mobile, there are 2 additional ways that some people say are available to unlock Samsung phone without losing data or without factory reset. Let's take a look.

Smart Lock

Samsung Smart Lock is a built-in feature on Galaxy phones. With this handy feature, you can enable Trusted places/devices/face or Voice Match to avoid situations like forgetting passwords. For example, When your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is locked out, you can go to a place where you added to your Trusted places to unlock your Samsung phone automatically.

That is to say when you have already been locked out of your Samsung phone and you haven't enabled this Smart Lock service before, then you are not allowed to unlock your device via this feature.

Safe Mode

Someone says Android users or Samsung users can boot their phones in Safe Mode to unlock the device without losing data. It does work sometimes. But there's a condition: the current lock screen is from a third-party lock screen app. That means you can only use the Safe Mode to unlock some devices that are locked by third-party applications instead of by the built-in lock screen settings.

In addition, you can never use a certain Samsung pattern unlock master code or some string of specific numbers or codes to unlock a phone without password.

FAQs on How to Unlock Samsung Phone When Forgot Password

For more information on today's topic - how to unlock Samsung S22 phone forgot password without losing data, you can check the following frequently asked questions.

1. How to restore your Samsung Galaxy after a factory reset?

If you have enabled automatic backup before, set up your Galaxy like new. In addition, you can also restore your Samsung phone via Samsung Cloud, provided it's enabled. So data backup before a factory reset on your phone is necessary.

2. Is there a universal code to unlock Android phones?

There's no single master pin to unlock Android phones as each is different to the phone depending on how it was configured. Android users have a SIM pin that is set by default to 0000 or 1234, and they can change the SIM card pin. But there's no universal master code to unlock Android phones.

3. What should you do if you don't want to lock your Samsung phone but it's asking you for a PIN?

If prompted and you have no choice but to enter a security PIN, you can choose a simple passcode that is easy to remember, like 1234 or 1111.
