    After andorid update I'm having an issue with the lockscreen. Normally I always use fingerprint.
    After a nightly Android update my phone asked me enter your pattern password once normally
    (because it was restarted as expected). But i can not remember my patern password.

    I have Android 7.X on Samsung S7 and no usb debugging enabled, no root, no SAMSUNG account (Find My Mobile does not work for me). I have only google account (FRP locked enabled by me) but it is for just locking screen not unlocking screen remotely (Find My Device does not work).

    I do not want to loose my data with Factory Reset. Is it possible to recover data?

    Welcome to Android Central! If you use the fingerprint sensor to unlock, you need to remember your backup password, because the phone should still ask you for that password periodically, for increased security. It wasn't doing that before?

    I'm afraid there isn't much else you can do besides a factory reset. We can't help you bypass a security feature on the phone.

    There are some Android Phone Data Extraction tool can help you enter the download mode, then you can move data without password
