Warning: If the unlock code is forgotten and if you device is not connected to a Samsung account, you will not be able to use the device if you do not reset it. If it was easy to bypass a security access, that would make it inefficient. Samsung is not responsible for any data loss or inconvenience caused by forgotten unlock codes.
