How to retrieve an alternative password on S5?

how to reset s5 alternative password


commented by

Delete all fingerprints (by going into settings & long pressing on the finger print, selecting remove) and recreate them. This will also clear you alternate password.
For more details you can also check at Samsung India site in its support option.

You have two options: Remove all traces (going to settings & long finger printing press, the selection to remove) and recreate them. This will also remove alternate password. Goto The administrator of Android devices and configure the remote lock & delete feature if you have not already. Once the installation program to use the lock function to reset your password. This allows you to change your "unlock screen" password.
