After I reset my Galaxy Note3, the password screen displayed is different to what I expected.

 What’s the password and what should I do?


Galaxy Note3 uses your Samsung Account to stop other people

      from reactivating your device after it has been reset.

      This is done by the Reactivation lock feature, and you can select

      whether to enable the Reactivation lock option or not in Samsung

      Account Setting step of Setup Wizard.

      Prior to warranty repair referral, the reactivation lock must be turned off.

      Please remember your Samsung account information to reactivate your device

      after it has been reset

      To turn off this feature, Go to Setting > General > Security > Reactivation lock* -

      you will be asked for your Samsung account Password Note: a data connection is

      also required for this process:
