There's plenty of directions for those who forget their pin code and can't unlock their phone, but there's no explanation for those who have their phone UNLOCKED, but don't remember their pin code to change it.

I can use my phone right now, but I don't remember my pin. That's why once it's off or the screen is locked, which will happen at night, I suppose, I won't be able to access it anymore without wiping the data.

Is there an easier way for me to deal with the problem?


I think you can turn screen timeout off, if possible (may vary by OEM). Most times, Google has no control of your phone lock, as far as I know.


If you really want you data I suggest you install a custom Recovery while you still can... Enable Developer Options (OEM AND USB debugging ) then when you think you have the required files to Install a working recovery for your phone you can go ahead and power it down 🌟. Once you have a working TWRP or CWM recovery you can go ahead and delete the password or pattern lock screen from the recovery while phone is off🙀💫..

If it seems complicated I think backing up your files would be reasonable enough
