You can perform a factory reset of your Huawei, but if you don't want to lose your data, you should first try to unlock your device with Screen Lock Pro, which is a paid app, available on the Google Play Store. Just follow the link to our guide. Once there, you'll see detailed steps that will help you solve your problem, and regain access to your locked Huawei device. Thank you for using VisiHow.

As long as your Android phone has access to the internet, you can use the Google Account Recovery Tool to reset your device password through Google. You'll need to answer a few questions, after which, Google will reset the password for your phone, and you'll be able to set a new password and regain access to your device.

I have a Huawei and I restored from recovery console, it asks for the Google account?

It asks for the account that was associated with and it does not allow me to skip this step, actually skip this step exists but it can't be accessed, I can't click on it, it requiters WiFi or data and goes for the ID that it was associated with. I have tried: I have restored it from console. I think it was caused by: Maybe it was associated with the phone but I forgot my credentials, it has some steps so I recover it, but I don't have what it asks; my old tel number or security questions if there are any I haven't gotten that far.
