    There isn't a way to recover the lock screen PIN. If you are having trouble remembering a PIN, then you need to take steps to prevent that from being a problem. Either keep that number written down in a safe location, or remove it all together (albeit this means no security lock screen on your phone). I wouldn't suggest using biometrics in your case because Android now requires entering your backup PIN at random to make sure you are still you.

    And if you factory reset, that means you'll need to verify the Google account login info currently on the phone the next time you set it up. If you don't know that, then there's really nothing you can do beside use it as a paperweight until you can remember that or your PIN. Those are security features and not something to set haphazardly for this get reason.

    Some carriers block this feature so it may not work, but you can use Samsung's device location feature to reset your biometric/security features. Of course, you would also need a Samsung account set up on the device for this to work.

    Ask the owner for the pin? ;-)

    I failed to link this guide when I replied above because I forgot that it existed.
    I do apologise.
