    Looks like you will have to do a factory reset:
    Hard reset Galaxy S7 or S7 edge using recovery mode
    • Power off your device.
    • Wait for a few seconds while your phone is shutting down.
    • Press and hold the Power, Volume Up and Home buttons simultaneously to get into Recovery mode. (read: how to get into Galaxy S7 or S7 edge recovery mode)
    • Use Volume keys to navigate and Power button to select an option in Recovery mode.
    • Once in, from the main menu, using Power key, select wipe data factory reset.
    • If you want to clear app data cache too, choose wipe cache partition. Clearing cache often fixes various software related issues.
    • When done, go back to main recovery menu.
    • Select reboot system now and that’s about it.
