  1. Use the menu on the left side of the screento choose your device from the list.
  2. It may take a few seconds for **Find My Mobile** to locate the device. The device must be powered on in order to be located.
  3. Once your device has been located, you need to click **Unlock**, and then click **Unlock** again. It will prompt you to enter your Samsung account password. When it’s done, then click **Next** to finish. Doing this will reset the Lock screen security type to swipe only
