We set a password on our Samsung Galaxy phones to avoid others access to the private data without permissions. You are allowed to set PIN/pattern/fingerprint as a password on modern Samsung devices. However, sometimes we forget the password and can't access our own Samsung phones.

Here are some free ways to bypass Samsung lock screen. Method 1 or Method 2 should be the first choice for most of you. Method 3 and Method 4 have their limits to unlock your Samsung phone. If all the above methods fail to unlock your phone, try the last method to go through a factory reset.

Method 4. How to Bypass Galaxy Lock Screen with Google Login?

It is quite an effective method to unlock your Samsung Galaxy without losing data, however, it only works on Android OS 4.4 and lower. Many of you should have upgraded Android OS to a higher version, so this may be the easiest but useless one on modern Samsung devices.

To do that:

  1. Enter a wrong PIN/password/pattern for 5 times.
  2. Click on "Forgot Pattern".

  4. Then your Galaxy will be unlocked.
