How do I reverse the revoking of access of my phone?

I was trying to unlock my phone and did the revoke access and was still unable to unlock the phone. Can I reverse this?


Since your phone is locked and you can't access any of your phone's features or applications, we're going to assume that the revoking of access that you did was for your Google account. When you use the remote revoke access feature to take away your Google account off of your Android phone, you actually remove the only way you can unlock your phone without having to perform a Factory Reset. Revoking Google access from your Android phone removes the account from your phone so nobody can log back into your account unless you unlock the phone. Your only option at this point to unlock your phone is to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe your phone's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to write down your new lockscreen password so you can refer to a piece of paper should you forget the password in the future. Additionally, log into your Google account and do not revoke access to it in the future. If you keep your Google account logged in and you forget your password again, you can enter the wrong lockscreen password up to 20 times and enter your Google information to unlock your device and change the lockscreen password.
