Your Google Account is what you need to use but from the pin lock on the phone. You click Forgot Password and then use your Google Account. If you do not remember what that was, go to Google Accounts Recovery to obtain it. If you hard reset your device, you will still need your Google Account credentials if the phone is on Lollipop or Marshmallow OS.
