Default Reset PIN

OK - so I got a new S5. I set up the fingerprint scanner and associated PIN while waiting in line at CVS. I know the PIN I chose (same as the PIN on my S3) but now it doesn't recognize my PIN. The fingerprint scanner works but I want to reset my PIN so I have the back-up. Is there any way to recover/reset the PIN without a factory reset?

Prolly not huh?

Lost Phone/Locked Out FAQ - Android Forums may help you.

Or go to a Best Buy, ask for the Samsung Desk and ask the Samsung people there. Since you can rove it's yours with the fingerprint, they may have a tool to reset the PIN.

Try removing all the fingerprint profiles. This will remove the associated password.
