Check out this YouTube Tutorial by Rootjunky. It should work on your LG Stylo. If not, then there are other methods below on the page for bypassing the Google FRP. Some LG devices from Boost Mobile, Metro PCS, and Sprint have a different method which is posted below.

I bought an LG Stylo phone and had a Google pre-email block on it, how do I unlock?

Unlock Google email block...bought a used phone and now I can't activate the phone because it has a Google email block on it, so it is useless. I have tried: YouTube and factory reset. That is all that has worked so far and nothing more. I think it was caused by: It has a pre-email address and won't open without it

You can factory reset the device all day long but you still will not bypass the Google FRP lock built in with the Lollipop and now Marshmallow OS on Android devices. The phone requires the last Google Account associated with the device. Follow the YouTube video posted above to bypass Google FRP on an LG device. If Rootjunky's method does not work, then attempt the Boost Mobile method discussed below.

I don't remember my Gmail username or password and need help getting back into my LG STYLO?

HELP ME PLEASE, I don't know how to get in, please give specific instructions. I have tried: Hard reset it, that is all. I think it was caused by: My friends were playing around and put a password on my phone and they don't remember it

You just need to go to Google Accounts Recovery. The link is posted in an above answer. Try going to Google Play on the PC or Gmail, perhaps you saved your name in these account websites. That will be the easiest way to recover your name. Google Accounts Recovery will ask you a series of identification questions. If you are still stuck then follow the process mentioned on this page for bypassing the Google FRP on an LG Stylo. The world is not ending, you will be able to access your phone again.

I have a rooted Android device with a lot of Google accounts associated with it....Can I get passwords from my rooted Android device?

I have a rooted Android device with a lot of Google accounts associated with it....Can I get passwords from my rooted Android device??

You can't get passwords from Google but you are given the option to reset your password. If you are logging in on the device and it is asking for your Google Account then this means that it wants the one listed as the master account. Make a list of all the Google Accounts on the device and try them one at a time.

I'm trying to get into a phone I brought and when I get to the home menu it's telling me to complete setup instead of bringing up the Google page....am I doing something wrong?

I'm on the motor and cognition settings. I try to hold down the home button to bring up the Google page like the instructions read but it just says setup to continue. When I come to the part where it says to hold the home button and a Google page appears, my phone says complete set up to continue and won't do anything else. I have tried: I've been back and forth trying to do the same thing several times. I have also went into the touch control areas to see if I can figure it out. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure. I brought the phone from someone who won't give me their email so I can restart the phone.

Used phone was factory reset, I can't get past the setup WiFi page, can you help?

I bought a used phone that was factory reset and I don't know the previous owner's Google account info, it won't go past the setup WiFi page, what can I do? I was told to download some kind of 5.0 app or something like that .

This largely depends on what model of smartphone you have. For instance, Samsung has a different method for bypassing the Google FRP of the previous owner's account. Go to YouTube and put in the search field: Bypass Google FRP (your make and model of phone). Several videos should appear. Some phones use the accessibility features of the device while others use a different method. If you do not find your make and model of phone, you will have to contact the person you purchased the phone from. They can put in their email account to open the phone and then delete it before a factory reset. This is how it needs to be done properly before you sell a used Android device.

When I hold down home key, it doesn't take me to a screen where I see settings. I can only see the 7 options?

It takes me to a switch access screen. Do I select off or on? It shows me options to do Key Combos for functions rather than a Settings screen. Please advise thanks. I get a screen that has Key Combo options not a Settings screen. What do I do? I have tried: Holding down Home Key but it doesn't take me to Settings choice. I think it was caused by: Not sure. I am not getting the Settings screen. I am getting a screen that says Switch Access Preferences and can't get to Settings screen.

Holding the home button on touch assist and I get, "continue with setup"?

It won't go past this step. I've figured out how to access Google but it won't let me pull up settings or anything like that. It doesn't work for my phone. my internet from Google doesn't pull up settings nor can it use the assist function.

How to bypass the Google sign in on LG M450. I bought it at a flea market and he turned it on so I thought it was OK?

I got down to where the overlay shows. It has volume up and down, power, and home. When I hold the home icon down I get a message that says "continue to setup" I followed all the previous steps until I got stopped by this. Please advise what I am doing wrong.. Thank you. Steve. It worked perfectly until step 7. I did what it said to do but it did not continue. I have tried: I have tried factory resetting the phone only to find out it still has the Google ID still in it. I tried to download a factory reset software but found out is was not useful at all since I wanted to keep the same carrier. I think it was caused by: I purchased this phone from a dealer in the local flea market. He turned it on and the setup screen came on so I thought it was OK. He gave me a 30 day warranty but unfortunately I didn't get back to the market in time. I was in the hospital for 40 days. I hope you can help me

Home button on overlay does not take me to Google?

When I hold down the home button on the overlay menu all it says is "complete setup to continue" I do not know where to go from here. When I hold down the home button on the overlay menu I do not get taken to the Google menu. I have tried: Nothing I don't know what else to do. I have tried going straight to Google pg but I still need the Google account. I think it was caused by: Different menus and maybe the provider being t mobile might change the menu options
