For some Android phone models, when you enter the wrong fingerprint for a certain period of time on the lock screen, you can see the “Unlock via Google” button to verify your Google account, which will unlock your Android phone.
If you can’t see the “Unlock via Google”, you need to visit Google Find My Device on computer browser.
Sign in your Google account. Choose your device and click Erase button to factory reset your phone, which will wipe all the settings and phone data as well as the lock screen fingerprint.
Note: The Google account should have been associated with your locked phone before. If you forget your Google account, you cannot use this method.
If you have a Samsung account signed in the locked device, you can definitely unlock the fingerprint screen, too.
1. Visit Samsung Find My Mobile from browser and login Samsung account.
2. Click UNLOCK MY DEVICE button.
3. Enter the Samsung account password and click UNLOCK.
Now the device will be unlocked as you see the lock icon gets green.
When the above methods failed to access, you may have to hard reset your device to remove lock screen. This method will lead to data loss. If you didn’t make a backup, you will lose all the data.
Entering the recovery mode to reset your phone is the most common way applying to almost any Android device. It doesn’t require anything done before, but all your photos, messages, notes, contacts, call logs, music, app data, documents etc. have to be wiped out. In addition, different device entering recovery mode may have a slight difference. Refer to the below steps.
Step 1: Switch off your phone.
Step 2: Boot your phone into Recovery Mode

It will check for update and about 30 seconds later you will see another blue screen with big “!” logo.
Next wait for another 60 seconds until you see the recovery mode menu.
For Google Nexus/Pixel and Moto:
Press and hold the Power button& Volume Down button simultaneously for about 10 seconds until you see “Start” at the top and an Android mascot.
Press Volume Down key twice, after which you should see the Recovery mode in red up at the top right corner. Press the Power button to select it and it will boot into recovery mode.
For LG device:
Press and hold the Power button and the Volume Down button at the same time, until you see the LG logo, release the Power button, and then press it again (you should continue to press the volume down button), now you should be in the recovery mode.
Step 3: After entering the recovery mode, press Volume Down/Up to move to “Wipe out/Factory data reset” and select it by pressing the Power button.
Step 4: Move to option “Yes-delete all user data” with Volume Down button and confirm by Power button.
Step 5: Once your device restarts, your device has completed the factory reset.
Note: Whenever you failed the step, long press the Power button to power off your device, and then start afresh from the first step.
