I don’t understand how you can forget your password, for me, it just comes naturally, I hardly even look at the screen. The Galaxy S5 onwards have a fingerprint sensor, making passwords even more obsolete. But, mistakes happen, and it’s important to know your way around this.
Provided you had turned on Android Device Manager, and have data or Wi-Fi turned on, the workaround is very simple. Simply log in to the Android Device Manager website and you will find the option to reset the password. After resetting the password, go back to the device and set a new password and you’re set.
So, you didn’t have Device Manager turned on, or the device isn’t connected to the Internet, what now? At this point, unfortunately, there’s no way to reset the device without losing all your data. You can still get your device up and running, but you will have to start afresh, sort of like a factory reset:
Some people opt out of Android Device Manager because of privacy, which is understandable after seeing your device located so easily and accurately. On the other hand, by doing so, you find your information at risk, like in the case where you have to delete everything. You have to make the choice, therefore, keep your privacy or trade it off for the assurance of remote assistance.
