    I forgot my pin code as I usually don't use one. Then put one on my Galaxy Note 5 and forgot it. When I didn't enter it correctly in the phone, it told me I only have 5 attempts left. I don't want to do a factory reset. Is there any way to get back into my phone?

    Try using Android Device Manager from a PC or laptop, to reset the PIN.

    Not sure if this still works on lollipop but keep entering the password wrong until it stops you from entering one for 1 min. At the bottom it should have the buttons, emergency call, forgot passcode and backup pin

    If you remember backup pin that's easier but hitting forgot pin will ask you to sign into account registered on that device and will then remove the password

    Let me know if this helped or not 😊
