I am trying to enable the Setting "Remote unlock" from Samsung (in Settings -> Biometrics and security -> Find My Mobile -> Remote unlock) by using the adb.

I could enable other settings like Bluetooth or WiFi by using some commands on the adb. Now, I am trying to figure out how to enable this "Remote unlock" by Samsung. I searched all the Android documents and references but couldn't find any solutions. I personally gave up and I don't believe this is even possible.

I wrote adb shell settings put secure fmm_unlock_recovery 1 and it seems to work. The only problem is, my devices don't connect to the internet because of too many failed password attempts.

Could someone tell me how or just if it's possible to enable it just by adb?

    scrcpy wont help me in this case sadly. My device suddenly dont accept my 3 years pattern lock, so i have to enable the "remote unlock" via adb to change my pattern with "find my mobile samsumg". But it needs the setting "remote unlock" enable which is not the case sadly

  • if phone suddenly deny unlock pattern, reboot is recommended. on the other hand, reboot is not recommended on secure startup enabled devices as you might lose the availbility to connect internet in case unlock is still denied

  • So this explains why i cant access to the internet anymore and why i cant reset my password via "find my device" from google...

  • No, I mislead you. secure startup would effect adb, too. Your question still applies

The following Setting-Parameters are for enabling "Find my Mobile":


So by writing the following commands, you can enable the Samsung's Find My Mobile via adb:

adb shell settings put secure fmm_community_finding 1
adb shell settings put secure fmm_pub_tag_finding 0
adb shell settings put secure fmm_unknown_tag_alert 0
adb shell settings put secure fmm_unlock_recovery 1

Keep in mind that you have to reboot "adb reboot" after writing these commands!
