    Easy had that happen to me... Just go online to android device manager log in with your google log in wait till it locates your phone u then click to lock your device it asks you for a new password. It over rides whatever password or lock feature u have on it. Then you get phone type the new password and boom problem solved
    Looks like this is "fixed" and if your screen is locked it doesn't replace the password

    When people are having difficulty with forgotten passwords, it's the absolute height of rudeness to ask them how they managed to forget. Perhaps I'm responding to a troll, perhaps to a grade A moron, either way, I'd be happy if you were banned for this behavior.

    Hi, I did all this and I still can't get into my phone. I've typed the new password in and it still says incorrect password.

    I forgot my backup password, I searched online a bit to find out how to reset it, and a lot of feedback was to factory reset my phone, but I didn't want to lose any of my data stored on my phone. I followed your advice and it worked. Thank You

    I've been using Fingerprint to unlock and I don't remember my Alternate Password which it's prompting me to put in when sync'ing my work calendar. It never pops up anything to recover my password or reset. What are my options? I can't even reset the phone without it.
