If you somehow forgot Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Pattern Lock and you’re looking for a way to get into your device then look no further. In this guide, we will be teaching you how to regain access back into your Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Pattern Lock often seems easy to remember and is perhaps the easiest in all of the lock methods available on most Android devices. However, when you’ve changed your Pattern lock a couple of times since you got the device, remembering the particular one you’re currently using becomes a problem. I know because I’ve been in that possible multiple times which is was I don’t usually use the pattern lock.
The few times I did get stuck, I had only one option which was to factory reset and wipe data which cleared out my phone. This was because I wasn’t using a Samsung device. Since you’re using a Samsung device, you might not lose all data as Samsung provides a way to regain access to your phone in case you forget your pattern lock. However, if the process doesn’t work for you, then you’ll have to wipe your device. Hopefully, you have a backup of your device data backed up somewhere.
