    Without the lock screen password you can not unlock the phone.
    That is what it is for and there is no way around the phone security.

    Best you can do is a Hard Reset (if reset protection is not turned on) and restore from a backup (if you made one).

    Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down


    Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down


    You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do lose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.
