Question about Samsung Cell Phones

1 Answer

Factory password has been used to unlock my samsung F480i mobile phone which has enabled the phone passwords I put on to protect my contacts and sms's is overridden by this factory password. I would like to know how I can protect my phone by changing this password so its not accessible to anyone who doesn't have the right to enter my phone.

I forgot my password to get in my phone its a samsung galaxy on5 what do i do?


I had the same problem with my galaxy j7, I forgot the login password to get in to my phone. I tried a hard factory reset to manufacture settings. I had contacts and photos backed up with google account, so it was okay to erase and reset the phone. The login password was gone and the phone started like i had just bought it, but then I ran into another problem. My google user account was still logged in when I reset the phone. Androids and googles Factory Reset Protection was activated and a message said "an unauthorized attempt to factory reset was detected, please login with the original user email and password". I forgot the screensaver password and google account password I was still locked out of my phone. Two options I had then was the local phone repair store (boost mobile was going to charge 40$ to unlock my phone) recommended to try this first. The other option was to reset google account password and login to email from another computer for password verification and wait googles 72 hour FRP lockout to use new password to login. If you have any other questions or cant login email at jtobias1020@gmail.com

I set a password ( which I forgot ) for my samsung flight 2 and my phone died so now i am locked out of my phone. Are there any ways of unlocking it besides the password? P.S. i tried at least five pages...


Hello,
Try use your puk code to unlock samsung flight2 password, type any password then your phone will be asking about puk code after you put wrong password in certain of time. Puk code can you found in your sim card paper or you can ask in your network provider. If puk code still can't unlock samsung old password, reflash your phone to default factory reset at nearest local mobile repair shop. Good luck!
