Hello. my name is Frances I need help bypassing the Google sign in on a phone?

My daughter found a Samsung Galaxy Note4 (like new) at her job. She wants to be able to get it unlocked so she can use it. But, if you put a SIM card in, ANY SIM, it does not ask for an unlock code when you power it on. It asks for you to enter the Google account info that was previously synced with the device. We do not have that info because this was someone else's phone before she found it, Can you help me?

Found does not mean "own". I am trusting that you tried to find the owner. You can hard reset the phone to bypass Google but that will wipe out any data if you want to use that to find who owns the phone. If you pull the battery you will find the IMEI number to use in contacting Samsung so they can notify the owner that the phone was found. You should also contact the police to see if the phone was reported lost.

If you have a Samsung, you can unlock the device with Samsung's Find My Mobile. You should contact Google's Account Authority to notify them that your password is not being recognized for your Google Account. You can wait to generate a new password with them but this will suspend your phone for 72 hours. Your final option is to hard reset the device.

When I am trying to hard reset my LG phone, it is not happening and it asks for a sign in to email account. Can you provide me with any solution for unlocking it, or to switch on WiFi in the mobile.

When I am trying to hard reset my LG phone, it is not happening and it asks for a sign in to email account. Can you provide me with any solution for unlocking it, or to switch on WiFi in the mobile.

You probably have Lollipop or Marshmallow OS. So they enabled in these that if the phone is hard reset it will still ask for the initial account. Try this Youtube Tutorial first. If that does not work, use the Google Account Authority to get that or flash Stock ROM onto the device to bypass that email prompt.

I am not able to unlock my Ace plus Samsung mobile set with Android lower version?

Sir, I set a pattern lock in my Samsung Ace plus Android mobile. unfortunately it was being operated wrongly by some children and might have attempted too many wrong patterns resulting the set became locked and it is coming in the screen - "TO UNLOCK, SIGN IN WITH YOUR Google ACCOUNT" and underneath two blank rectangular boxes appearing showing one for user name and rest are password. I may have Google account or not in mobile but forgot. I know my email ID and password in my computer. Please help me as I have a lot of important phone numbers in my mobile that I am unable to get again, once it will be erased by Factory Reset. I even tried switch on + volume up key at a time after switching OFF my mobile set. My set is vibrating at a very short interval without powering ON. Lastly I tried several times my email ID and password used for opening my e-mail in computer, there is no result. Please help me in a very simple way so I can unlock my mobile set. I will be thankful

First, go to Google Accounts Authority to find out what Google Account you had, that is, if you ever set one up on the phone. If you registered with Samsung when you got the device, you may be able to unlock the phone using Samsung's Find My Mobile. As you already know, if these do not work then you will have to hard reset. If it comes to that, then try to backup the device using Kies first.

Most of the Motorola's can access their Settings menu during a phone call. Have someone call you and stay on the call while you access the Settings and turn off the lock. You can also try to change your password in your Google Account online. Go into your account and then security. Go into Application Passwords and reset yours.

Hi, my Nexus5 updated to 5.1.1 Android and I can't remember my pattern, what should I do to save my data? Thanks?

I have a Google account, and my pattern involve all of the 9 points, and also my pattern changed recently! I need your help badly

Use that Google Account! It may take 20 times but eventually you will get the prompt to use the Google Account. If you hard reset the Nexus 5 you will have to install new Stock ROM if it will not accept your previous Google Account.

I lost my mobile, is there any way rather than Android device manager to trace my mobile?

Help me to know more, can the person access my data, I had pattern lock in my mobile. Also tell me the procedure of how to secure a mobile using anti theft so that if they even take the mobile, they cannot use it. Not even change the Software of the phone

If you had the GPS enabled then Google Device Manager will be able to find the phone. Without GPS, you can lock and wipe the data off the phone if you are worried as this is another option in Google Device Manager. The hard reality is that a pin lock stops a thief from accessing your data but all they have to do is hard reset the device to bypass that. Also, if it has Lollipop for instance that insists on using the old Google Account after a hard reset, all the thief has to do is install new Stock ROM.

Suddenly my fingerprint was unrecognizable and I have forgotten my backup password also device is not allowing WiFi access and data connection too, what to be done

Fingerprint unrecognizable, backup password also forgotten, device not allowing WiFi or data connection to be enabled for opening through Google account

Wipe the screen with Rubbing Alcohol. See if Samsung's Find My Mobile will unlock the phone even without WiFi enabled. If these do not work and neither does your Google Account, then hard reset the phone. In the future, write that backup password down and throw it in one of your dresser drawers. The fingerprint can fail regularly if your screen is dirty or you have something on your finger.
