After hard-resetting, Samsung J5 or another Samsung is asking to open your synchronized account, and I have no access to it to perform the log-in.

I have done a hard reset to my Samsung J5. It is asking to give a synchronized Google account, and I have no access to it just because I have not been using the Google account for a long time and have forgotten the email address and password, in fact everything about that. So, how should I open my phone. What should I do to it?

How do I find my Google account that was synced to my Samsung S7 Edge device?

I had a software virus problem and was told to try various options to overcome the screen overlay issue. Finally I was told to go and reboot to factor reset. I forgot to delete the password settings and accounts from the accounts and security apps. now I am stuck with the reset process stalling and asking repeatedly for my previously synced account on the device which I can not seem to remember. Every time I type in what I think is the password and ID, it keeps coming back to the same prompt asking for Google account synced to the device previously. I can't operate the phone any more, can you please guide me out of this problem. Many thanks.

I was wondering if you could by any chance. I've forgotten my sign in detail's and I was wondering if you could help me with retrieving the previous Google account detail's that is synced to my mobile device?

I reset my mobile device, and when I turn the phone back on and go through resetting the phone back up, I get to verify your account. I was wondering if you could help me with recovering the previous Google account that is synced to my mobile device, please.
