I have an Android 6 device.
Since this morning when I woke up, my pattern is no longer working and the wifi mobile hotspot was turned off during the night (it was on when I went to sleep).
After a few tries and waiting 30 secs, it lets me access the phone thru the backup pin, but if i try to change the pattern (settings -> security -> security lock) or to reset the settings, it asks for the pattern again, which of course no longer works.
Any ideas what to do about this situation? Would prefer not to lose all my apps / settings / data.
