    If you toggle on the setting of the os, it's 15. The play store has 3rd party apps that allow this value to be changed.

    Unfortunately, the theif will have unlimited attempts.
    Did you set up a Samsung account? Log in and lock your phone through the Samsung portal.
    At the least, call your carrier and get it in the system as stolen. This should make it scrap value, though your data may be exposed. Change all your passwords. Enable 2fa for your new phone. Good luck

    Your typical opportunistic thief will have, in the immortal words of Inspector Clouseau, the brain of a minkey (monkey). So they're not going to sit down and go through every possible combination. They might try to factory reset it, in which case they'll encounter Factory Reset Protection (where the phone asks for your Google or Samsung account/password). At that point, they'll probably try to sell it, and any buyer with an ounce of sense would make sure they can actually boot it up and set it up before handing over any money, and since they wouldn't be able to, the sale wouldn't go through (and hopefully they'd alert the police about possible stolen merchandise).

    Bottom line, your important data is safe, but it might be hard to actually get the phone back.
