It asks me for my pas scode and I put in the pass code and it will not accept it. I know it is correct. I do not want to lose all my info. I am on a a Samsung S6.

There is a temporary solution in place for Android 7+.
However, what you need to do is:
- remove the pin on Android 6 or lower,
- set the pin again on Android 7.
Unfortunately, these two schemes are not compatible. Some sort of a better solution needs to be found. Any volunteers are welcome to implement this.
As usual, being an Open Source project, we accept pull request. In fact, this is the only way to get the features into the app as we do not have a regular development team for Android version.

Please can you advise how I can remove the passcode when I no longer have a phone running Marshmellow? I can still open the file on my Windows desktop but it insists on a passcode on my phone so assume the passcode must be written to the file somewhere?
