    Welcome to Android Central! You might be able to use Samsung's Find My Mobile to reset the password, but I'm not sure about that. In the future, if you're prone to forgetting your passwords, consider writing them down and keeping them in a safe at home.

    About the only thing I can think of is to go to your carrier with photo ID and see if they can do anything remotely to reset the password. It's very unlikely, though. The whole point is to make it very hard to recover if you forget the backup password, unfortunately.

    Best of luck.

    If you've setup device manager, then you should be able to login and reset the lock PW. Worth a shot.
