  • If it's not controlled by an MDM solution, wipe and reset it.

    If bypassing security locks, patterns, biometrics etc was viable (outside of managed devices), locking them would not be and there would be no point in them existing.

    I'd love to. The problem is, you need the pattern lock to even shut down or restart the damn thing.

  • Plug tablet into a computer then turn off device, press and hold volume up+power , release power button only after A7 logo comes on, it will boot into recovery and you can do a factory reset. It has to be plugged into a computer, does not work with a power outlet.

    If it is registered with find my mobile, you can reset it via Samsung's website.

  • I am not a tech support guy and I am only guessing here. Since this morning, the phone was charging in a wall socket on the other side of the room. That means there is a high probability that either you or somebody else pressed something at some time since it was last charged causing the pattern lock to appear.
