Go to a PC and login to your Google Account. Click on My Account in the upper corner and look for Two Step Verification. If this is enabled then you will not be able to use your Google Account on a mobile device. Disable it, reboot your phone. Wait for Google to sync and then try again.

Locked out of my Samsung Galaxy On 5 (TMobile)?

I forgot my login pattern and exceeded the number of attempts. I also forgot my Gmail email and the password too. Went to Best Buy and TMobile and none of them can help me. I still can't use my phone for well over a week. Please help!

Option 1: Factory reset your phone and then bypass Google using this YouTube Tutorial by Rootjunky. Option 2: From a PC, login to Samsung's Find My Mobile. You can use this to remotely unlock your device. You would have had to set up a Samsung account on the device previously.

No Google username or password for Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime?

Bought a used Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. It was hard reset by the previous owner. Came with Straight Talk activation card. Requires Google username and password that I do not have. thought it would work due to the first question the phone asked for was the language. The previous owner moved, unable to contact. What do I do? Please help, the phone is not stolen either. Checked.

How does one bypass the Android 5.1 security feature?

I purchased an Alcatel TracFone for my granddaughter as a present for good grades. She forgot her passcode and asked me what to do. I have always believed that a factory reset will cure most ills. Not this time. We did the factory reset and it asks for WiFi. So we log into WiFi. Then it asks for the previous Google account synced with this device. There was none. But we entered EVERY Gmail address we know it could have possibly been. No luck. Basically, this phone is a brick?

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Use one of these Youtube Tutorials. The reason why there is a list of them is that the steps are slightly different depending on which Alcatel phone your granddaughter has. When you set up the phone this time, create a Google Account and save it on a piece of paper. You will need this anytime the phone needs to be hard reset or to bypass a locked device.

I got this Samsung Galaxy S7 from this guy Josh off of Craigslist and told me that I just need to set it up to my WiFi then take it to a phone service provider and I was good to go. When I got home, I set it up to my WiFi, but then the phone said I need to provide an email that was last used. I bought the phone from the guy and I talked to him through email and he told me to meet him at the Walmart near him so I have no idea where the man lives and have no way to contact him, so I figured there have to be some way to reset the phone to where it will be brand new

Bypass the Google FRP. Many people are not aware that they need to remove the Google Account before they hard reset a phone for resale. YouTube has a variety of videos to bypass Google FRP specifically for people like you that purchased a used phone or hard reset their phone thinking it would remove the lock.

My phone did something crazy, I did not set up a fingerprint security because I was unable to remember my backup password?

My phone is telling me to enter my Gmail username and password, if I do then I will not have to reset it, the last time I changed my password it locked me out of my phone for 72 hours, could have sworn I knew my password because of this 72 hour issue is there anyway of doing anything without being locked out for 72 hours, we have been on vacation, and have to drive home now and don't know what to do

First, log in to the Google Account on the PC to see if your 2 Step Verification is enabled and stopping you from using the Google Account on the device. Second, if you hard reset the phone you can bypass the Google FRP and gain access within about 15 minutes. This is way better than 72 hours!

About my Xperia 4 Aqua mobile phone?

I have a lockdown mode on my phone even when I enter my username and password it still comes up as entering wrong details, can't use my phone because of it

When Sony Theft Protection goes into lockdown, the only way to disable it would be to use the Google Account last synced to the device. You could check the Google Account for 2 step verification. If this is not preventing you then hard reset the device and use this YouTube Tutorial to bypass Sony Theft Protection's Google FRP.

My daughter wrongfully entered a wrong code?

Since then I have put my correct username and password, but to no avail

If the WiFi is not enabled then your Google Account will not work. You will have to hard reset the device and then bypass the Google FRP if the phone has a Lollipop or marshmallow Android OS.

My user license agreement for software is ended?

My user license agreement for software is ended, so they asked me to update the software. shown. this device was reset, to continue, sign in with a Google account that was previously synced on this device. Now my problem is, I forgot my email ID, username, and password. What to do now, please give me a solution

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Use Google Accounts Recovery. Then if you can get the email ID back it may jog your memory for what the password is. Beyond that, you can bypass Google FRP. Simply search that term and the specific device name. More and more YouTube videos are coming out of ways to bypass the Google FRP.
