Default [Q] So I set up the fingerprint lock screen... But can't change it back

After having a few adult beverages last night i was showing this girl the fingerprint scanner lockscreen, it works no issues.... But i have no idea what I set my alternative password to to be able to change it.

I really don't want to have to do a factory reset, what are my options?

Sounds like it doubles as an IQ test too. Setting a password that you won't remember isn't a great approach. But you can get out of this mess by deleting all of your fingerprints. You can confirm the action by swiping your finger (rather than needing the password). When you've deleted all fingerprints on file, you should return to a normal lock screen.
