Help with forgotten password

Hello, my mother has a LG K12 +(with android 8.1)  phone and when she put a new password she ended up forgetting the new password.
I looked on google for help with this situation and all the websites i read said to make the phone go back to factory settings (which is unthinkable in this situation since she doesn't back up often and the phone has photos and important conversations ). Or tell me to download some software on my PC, which is also a problem since I don't have a computer, I only have a tablet

So I would like to know how I can unlock her phone without losing any files?

Why? There's no way to unlock the phone without a computer?

I mean, I might be wrong but you're probably going to have to reset the phone, and yes it would be almost impossible without a computer/laptop. I'm not familiar with Androids though.

Don't have any programs that I can use on the tablet?

for the other people looking at way to unlock android without password, I don't think there's any way to do it

the only way is a hard reset and you will lose all content (and you will need to remember the google account to setup again)
