How can I unlock my pin screen without doing a factory reset?

AC Question

I have a Samsung galaxy s6. It will not let me go past my pin screen. I have the correct pin but it still indefinitely will say incorrect pin with no other prompts. My phones wifi is off, gps off, and internet off. Is there any way I can get into my phone without losing my data?

Welcome to Android Central! If you fail the unlock enough times, does it prompt you for your Google credentials?

If you registered your S6 on the Samsung.com site, you also have an option there to Unlock it ... Not sure if it works if you actually have no Internet connection though, but might be worth a try, Of course, you'll need to know your Password.
