Galaxy 6. How can I bypass password?


Samsung Galaxy S6: How to bypass Password:

Hello. You'll need to enter in your password first in order to get into the phone, and then set the phone to no security so that you can get into your device without having to enter it all the time, if it has become annoying. I would suggest at least using a simple swipe pattern to lock your phone

1. Enter screen unlock password
2. Go to:
Settings>Device>Lock screen>
(under screen security)
tap on "Screen Lock"
(enter your screen unlock password to confirm)
select: None, or Swipe, or pattern

==

if you are unable to select: None or Swipe
because they are greyed out
like this:


bypass-password-galaxy-6-kyzl0pi20tqzz121bvlihxv0-2-0.jpg then you will have to just clear the credentials in security..
(this happens when you select a high security option)

go to:
Settings>Security>Clear Credentials
then go back to
selecting your new lock screen option

then, Go to:
Settings>Device>Lock screen>
(under screen security)
tap on "Screen Lock"
(enter your last screen unlock password to confirm)
select: None, or Swipe, or pattern

I locked my computer with a password and now I cannot remember the password. How do I unlock my computer?


  • 1Hit "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" on your keyboard all at the same time and hold them for a few seconds. Select "Restart" from the list of options presented in the Task Manager. If you cannot get to the task manager using this method, manually shut down your computer by pressing and holding the power button. Wait about 30 seconds before turning the computer back on.
  • 2Wait for the computer to get to the Windows logo then press and hold "Control," "Alt" and "Delete." The classic login box will appear. Type "Administrator" in the dialogue box marked "User" and leave the password box empty. Click "Sign in" or hit "Enter" and wait for Windows to load the administrator profile.
    3
  • Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of your screen. Scroll through the list of programs until you find "Control Panel" and open it.
  • 4Locate the "User Accounts" tool. In the "User Accounts" window, select the password tab. Locate the account that you wish to reset the password for and select the text box with the black dots in it. Delete these dots and enter the password that you wish to use. Re-enter the new password in the "Confirm New Password" area. Click "Apply."
  • 5Close all of the open windows. Then, click your "Start" menu and select "Restart." Wait for Windows to restart and this time allow it to boot up normally. Enter the new password into the "Password" dialogue box and hit "Enter."

    Phoenix bios password


    The thing is that somebody set bios password. On phoenix bios based on intel platform? like yours normally if you will enter bios password incorrectly 3 times bios will lock the computer and it will generate 12 digit lock code. You will need to contact Toshiba technical support to get bios unlock password. (Normally this is generated by them within couple of hours.)
    I would recommend you to check with toshiba support before locking bios (entering password incorrectly 3 times)
