    When I reset my phone last month, I set up a 6-digit passcode (August). My phone (Samsung Galaxy A01) asked for a passcode when I woke up this morning and tried to unlock it using Touch ID, but it was a 4-digit passcode. My old 4-digit passcode was ineffective, and I am unable to input a 6-digit code.
    Since the day I reset my phone, I'm very sure I haven't touched a single setting connected to the passcode. My phone is currently useless, as I attempted to resolve the issue with a restart or power off.

    Is there a method to unlock the phone without having to input the ineffective PIN?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does the PIN entry screen look the same as before, or different? See if you can take a picture of the screen and show us here.

    If your sign into your Samsung device you can remotely unlock by going here , if not then factory reset in recovery unfortunately.
