Have data on it that I do not want to wipe.

In order to do it, you'll need to go to https://www.google.com/android/find and log in to your connected google account. When it finds your phone, choose the lock option and it should prompt you to put in a new password.
This is meant to override the current password when set (after some delay ~5mins)

I normally use finger print access and every once in awhile it will also prompt me for the PIN.
This had been working for many months prior to lunchtime today.
