    I forget my private mode password not sure if I used CAPS, how many chances do i have to figure it out? I don't want to be locked out it's all my pics of my baby. I set it up with something simple only days ago but it's not working now. So My only guess is CAPS was on so I have to fiddle.... Bottom line. I will die if I lose all the pics of my baby Please tell me there is not a limit of tries. I am waiting 30 mins now and it is only letting me try one at a time. NOT helpful ... (p.s. android creators there should definitely be a forgot password option set up for this.).

    From what I can find, it looks like you have to do a factory reset to reset the password. https://www.recovery-android.com/tip...vate-mode.html. I can't be sure, but if you backup your data before the reset (with Smart Switch), those private mode photos will probably be backed up and accessible upon restoring them.

    Sorry, I don't know that for sure. I'll move this to the S7 forum so that you have more chance of an S7 owner answering your question.
