    I got drunk last night, changed the password on my phone and cannot seem to get into it. I can't seem to turn my phone off without the password either. Is there any way to back up the files on my phone and any way to hard reset it? I have a feeling I'm screwed but trying to remain hopeful lol. It says it needs my password to turn the phone off.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Unfortunately you will need your password to do anything. Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

    Oh dear.

    I think there may still be a way. Was your S7 logged into your Samsung Account? If so, I believe it may be possible to unlock or even go through your Google Account and do it. Log into either account on your laptop.
