How do applications(UnlockGo) that allow one to connect their Android to PC work in removing password?

I thought the password also is used to encrypt Android device. Is the data erased? i.e. Encrypting and using password still useful even if the pin can be bypassed?

  • From UnlockGo's website: "Unlock screen lock on earlier Samsung devices without data loss (Before S7).", which implies that on newer devices, you lose your data. In other words, it's just a factory reset.

  • Are you asking about the lock screen, or the (Google's) Factory Reset Protection?
