    I have a s7 active and I have forgotten my private mode password how can I recover it or any of the files in it? I once had it as a password and then I changed to fingerprint but then since I do roofing it got hard to use my fingerprint so I removed my fingerprint from my phone and my private mode changed changed from fingerprint as well to a password but I don't know this password or I have just forgotten it.

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the S7 Active forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to recover the password if you've forgotten it. All that you can do is factory reset so that you can create a new private mode password (which is obviously not helpful if you want to keep the private data).

    It sucks corey, but Diddy is correct! I think you are SOL!
