I have forgotten my password ***** my mobile Samsung s7 that accompanies my fingerprints and cant unlock my phone

Technician's Assistant: When were you last able to use your phone?

1 hour ago

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a Factory Reset? The Phone Expert can walk you through this to ensure you don't lose your photos, contacts and other data.

Is this the only way

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

No just that I'm pretty dumb when it come to mobiles

If you have forgotten the passcode and your fingerprint is not working then you will have to reset the phone will will erase everything stored on it.

This is a security feature from Samsung.

Do you have a backup of all your data stored somewhere, e.g. a Samsung Cloud account?
