I just updated my phone to android 13 and everytime I type my password it says that it's incorrect. I've been using the same password for many months there's no way I'm typing it incorrect. How can I unlock my phone without factory resetting it?

I had the same problem when I updated, but it was fixed when I restarted it by pressing the power button and volume down for a few seconds

My wife just had this issue after doing a second update on her samsung z-flip4 .. after the first update she was able to sign in but not after the second ... I dredged through my memory for this solution....

In the past she set a password that was 17 characters... but the max password length was 16 characters.. some time in the past the system allowed a longer password but anything typed in past 16 characters was ignored.. it seems that with one of the updates this no longer happens and it looked at all characters entered. We typed in the first 16 only and bingo.. it unlocked!!!
