Hello,

So recently I changed my phone's PIN and I just can't seem to remember it. Fortunately there are other ways to enter my phone (through fingerprints). However the question remains, how do I reset my PIN because that too requires my PIN...
I was thinking about doing a factory reset but I want to be sure that a factory reset doesn't keep the PIN and indeed erases it. (I was planning on doing one anyways). Also my phone is a Samsung galaxy s9+ running on android 8.0.0

So if you could answer the following question, I would really appreciate it: does factory reset also remove the PIN?

Thanky you in advance!

You cant factory reset without the pin.
Additionally, you may run into a different issue soon. My phone, also running 8.0, requires me to enter the pin every 72 hours, you cant only use fingerprints.
