Anyway to remove lock screen passcode for Samsung?

I added a lock screen password to my Galaxy S6 yesterday but I just forgot it after wakeup. Is there anyway to reset or remove the password without factory reset? I didn't backup the phone yet so it is not a good option to reset the phone. thanks

There are ways to circumvent the Android OS's passcode, however this requires you going into command prompt. (You'd also need to connect your device, and may need developer options enabled beforehand - thus making this impossible in its current state)

 

This may also brick your phone if you're not careful, so be warned.

thanks. I already turned on USB debugging. The problem is that I didn't sync with Google service, so can't use remote password reset.

If the only problem is that it won't accept your gmail account login, then it is not really locked out.
Try this: go to Settings > Accounts & sync, and if you see any accounts with a 'g' icon that aren't yours, press them and then press Remove account.
Then go back and press Add account, and select Google, and enter your Gmail user name and password.
Or other method is try " hard reset, This well reset everything and you could potential lose your data.
Also, there there are four methods to unlock screen passcode on Samsung
