How To Unlock Samsung Galaxy Note 9 With Forgotten PIN

Problem: Hi. I have covered seemingly every corner of the tech world, YouTube and Google alike, to find a way to unlock my lock screen that I forgot the PIN password to. Since a truly idiotic set of odd circumstances led me to being pinned with my PIN alternative security setting. Yet I have turned up nothing to help me. I have paid for Dr. Fone. Yet considering my luck, they support every model under the sun, except my phone. So after consulting with their tech support, I had to refund my money for that software (refund still pending for possibly the next week). I just now tried to go through 4ukey for Android. It seemed perfect, right until I saw that it was asking me if it was ok to delete all data, in efforts to remove my lock screen. After I read a blog that said it would NOT remove any data. Along with comments that I highly suspect are from fake accts. claiming it saved their phone with data intact. So even they failed me. I saw a YouTube video about a software someone was showing in visual use. I think it was called, ‘Odin’? I can’t recall at the moment. I don’t know about that one. From what I saw, it seemed ideal for those who were fine with their data being deleted. So that was a huge no from me. I’m just wanting to remove the lock screen, with data intact. So that I may change the security settings, so as to avoid this terrible set of circumstances that was the result of what were a truly idiotic set of circumstances that befell me BEFORE I ended up stuck with a PIN alternative security setting that I have no idea what I set the PIN to a long time ago. Consider this: I have made it a healthy habit of backing up data that comes through my phone. Yet because of how prolific I am in day-to-day life, I’m always adding things that span across the creative spectrum on a daily basis. I have highly sentimental pieces of data trapped within my phone. Along with great pieces of what is my life’s work in the making in there as well. I have no money to spare. Thanks to setbacks such as medical, neurological, and cognitive-based issues, I have little to no means within my reach at this time to have financial means to afford software. The problem here is essentially a simple one. Yet it’s all it took to keep me from what is extremely important to me. Please help. I don’t know where else to turn. I hope I provided specific enough info. regarding the phone model, etc. Thank you in advance.
