    So I went to unlock my phone that had a pattern and it did not recognize it even though I entered it correctly 10 times. It asked for my backup pin and I entered it correctly, again 100% it was not wrong. It kept adding seconds to my log in timer. This has been happening every couple days for the past week. I just restart my phone and the pattern is recognized. Anyway, today I unlocked my phone with my google account and then I went to change my security screen to the same pattern to see if it would stop bothering me every couple days. Then, I noticed that even after I chose my pattern it would revert to swipe, no security. After re doing the pattern a couple of times and still staying at swipe no security (I turned off my phone and there was no pattern even though every time I wanted to switch the security screen it would ask me for the pattern). I switched to pin. That did not work and stayed at swipe no security and as I tried to change it, it asked me for the pin. I entered it and it said sorry, try again. So now I can't change the screen lock. What do I do? My lock screen is unlocked by a swipe even though in the settings for security it says pin.

    I've restarted it many times and I don't want to do a factory reset because I have too many pictures and contacts that I cannot afford to lose.
