How am I going to recover my pin or is there a universal pin

Have you already tried face unlocks?
or fingerprint
Customer Reply
The only option it's giving me is to type in a pen number no fingerprint no unlocking it with face. The only way I can get into it is with a pin number

Yes

No, I see options between reboot system now reboot to bootloader and a fast boot. Apply update from ADB wipe data factory reset. Is that what I need to do? Wipe data factory reset?
There's a view recovery logs
Do I need to wipe data factory reset? Is that what I need to hit?
Denys Kashnytskyi
Denys Kashnytskyi Tech Expert & Writer
Yes, you need factory reset
But this option will delete everything
Customer Reply
Okay it says data wipe complete. So now what do I need to do reboot system now?
Denys Kashnytskyi
Denys Kashnytskyi Tech Expert & Writer
Just Power and Volume down buttons and hold them
And reboot
Customer Reply
Okay, it's powering back up and I think I'm good
