Android Central Question

I had pattern lock on my phone. I decided to set fingerprint lock but for that the current lock should be pin lock. So I set pin lock and fingerprint is set. Now I forgot my pin password and I can only unlock using fingerprint. How I can reset, change my pin lock. Because in settings I need to provide previous pin lock to change which I have forgotten.

Welcome to Android Central! You have to remember these things, especially since Android devices will typically ask for your backup PIN/password/pattern from time to time to increase security (especially when doing a cold boot). You've never noticed that before?
