Here is how you can go about recovery of passwords for Samsung smart phones and laptops through a step-by-step guide.

In case you have set up a pattern lock for your phone and forgot the correct pattern, you can easily unlock it using Google account login.

Upon trying multiple times with incorrect password (pattern), you would see a "Forgot Password" option on your mobile screen.

While you select the "Forgot Password" option, you would be asked to enter your Google account username and password. In case you bear multiple Google accounts, you must enter the details of that account which you used to set up your phone previously.
