My daughter is 8 years old and away with her grandparents

This answer was rated:

My daughter is 8 years old and away with her grandparents and her tablet! I have a family link that manages her screen time! However her tablet for some reason is showing the wrong time and has locked! We have tried the family parental access code to try and unlock it but it says incorrect code! I am unsure if she has WiFi where she is! Is there any way for her to unlock the tablet?

What is the make and model number of the tablet?

It is a Samsung Tab a10

To recover the Samsung tablet, try the following:

Go to in with the same Samsung account used on your locked device. It may take a few seconds for Find My Mobile to locate your device.Once your device has been located, click Unlock, and then click Unlock again. Enter your Samsung account password, and then click Next to finish.Doing this will reset the Lock screen security. --------------Please let me know if you have any further questions on this topic and I'll be happy to help.Have a good weekend,Pete.
