Customer Question
Hi, Pearl. I've...

Hi, Pearl. I've got a galaxy s6 that I pulled a factory reset (vol up, home, power) due to a malicious app causing problems. I don't know that I have a samsung email account or password, though, which is what it asks for.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Samsung s6 galaxy, it was somewhat new when we bought it

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It was acting buggy for a couple days, and then I did the hard re-set, and can't access the email account or password (if I set them up, I can't remember them)

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Android Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Thank you for providing this information, I am on the process of doing a reset on the email. When I tried to do a reset on the account it asked for the Security question for verification purposes and first question is, Could you tell me what is the City of birth?
