I forgot my backup password?How do I fix it without clearing data?
I have a fingerprint scanner,but for some reason I placed my thumb after the shower when it was kind of wet and locked me out.The idiotic part is I sort of forgot my backup password...how do I get back in without clearing personal data.
Cette question est-elle utile ?
I have same problem
par manuel c
my phone is actually galaxy note edge. i am completely lockup and can't turn on anything.
I have a Samsung A5 and was also completely locked out. No way I could get back in. I could not access the fingerprintscanner anymore etc. I was 'afraid' I would loose my data if I would do a hard reset (back to factory settings). Anyway, I tried to find a way around it (like you guys do now) but couldn't find. Been days locked out while I needed my smartphone very much (being in a foreign country)... so. I did the reset. Guess what? All my data was still accesible! Probably because I had made sure that my data got automatically transfered to my SD card. So they actually weren't on my phone's memory. Just as with everything on my SIM (contacts/phonenumbers). It was all still there! The only app I had to re-install was WhatsApp. But even then by doing so, the app itself had all my conversations stored.
Bottomline: to do a reset does not evaporate all data necessarily; as long as you had an SD card in it where you stored your pics and vids etc. And as long as you store your Contacts on your SIM card instead of the phone's memory itself. Hope this helps for at least some! :)
Only possible options without erasing info is to get your thumb wet again and see if it works or remember your back up code
