I'm not sure but I did read somewhere you can actually recover your password using the Google Account set in your device, without hard resetting your device.

Hi folks. I need some help here. I have a samsung galaxy tab7.When I try to install a samsung app it shows my email address and then asks for a password. I've tried the password for logging into my tablet and also my gmail password. Either one comes back with a invalid password. I don't know what password it is looking for. If anyone can help it would be appreciated.
