  1. i never u my password i always use my biometrics (fingerprint or iris) my phone died and i need my password to log in, but i cant remember password for google account which is why i use biometrics because it is forever with me.
    How to bypass password using biometrics?

    • That’s not possible to bypass password using biometrics security. You can enable or disable biometric security only. If you forgot your Google account password, just reset your Google password using your phone number or email id on your PC. So you can use your Google account.

      You can even use the Find my mobile app to unlock if you forget your pattern, PIN, or password. To use this service, you must be signed in to your Samsung Account on your device.
