    Hello,
    I have "succeed" to stuck my Note 4. I forgot the screen password.
    I don't want to reset the phone, because i will lose all data.
    I found my phone with "Find my device" from google, but i can't change the screen password.

    Do you know a method to solve this issue ?

    PS i don't have Samsung account, I can't find my phone with "Find My Phone". The phone is not stolen, i can communicate with him, I can answer, I can call just to one number (which was setup with "Find my device"), I can install apps, but i can't unlock.

    Thank you

    it's strange, because few months ago, the "find my device" from google had a option to lock the screen with a password, or to change the screen password.
    Now the options are:
    - ring the phone
    - lock + to send a phone number
    - erase data
    If I can make the phone to ring...theoretic it is possible to unlock the screen...through my google email account...because it is safe...and, in this situation I can not unlock a stolen phone.
