screen unlock pattern Samsung S8

My phone was working fine this morning and then about 2 hours ago the screen unlock pattern didn't work and the message said wrong pattern. Can anyone help with telling me how to unlock it please? I am an exercise class teacher and need my phone for later!

Usually you have a 2nd unlock method e.g. a PIN, to fall back on.

Hello there @Sam61


Welcome to the community.


Have you been able to unlock your phone using another back up method, such as a PIN code?


Hope your all sorted now 🙂

If you don't know the back up unlock method the only way is a factory reset which will erase all your data.
