So last night I updated my A22 with the latest Samsung update. I was able to open my phone after it but in the morning, it requested to use my 'password after restart'. 

When I did, it said incorrect password tho I haven't changed the password ever. 

I tried to open using find my mobile, but every time it said 'something wrong happened'

So I backed up my files using the find my mobile then factory reset my phone.

any updates or perfect solution on this issue. we  are desperate to recover my daughter's pictures in her S21+ model. Factory reset is not an option. we are stuck and not using her unit for more than a year now.
