My kids used my phone when I was out of my home. When I came back, they have used wrong pattern lock/password on my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. I don't remember my gmail ID added to this phone, this has been setup by the shop owner friend. I don't use this phone for my business or personal purpose. Just for Internet access and camera uploads. How can I re-enter into the phone and change the pattern lock or password. Forgot PIN.

I think you have two options.
1. Contact with the shop owner, he may remember the e- mail added to phone. It may possible that he remember only that e- mail/user-id, so you can reser your password.

2. Go to a Samaung care they will perform factory reset operation. But in this method you will loss your all data stored in phone.

 I hope the link above will prove helpful to you.
Also, you can show it to the Samsung Care centre. Make sure that you have your imp data on SD card. If you have an email ID, then check if you can sign in.
