So I got a phone from my mother and she factory reset the phone but she doesn't know the Google account she used or phone, it was along time ago?

So I got a phone from my mother and she factory reset the phone but she doesn't know the Google account she used or phone, it was along time ago. I have tried: All of her Google accounts she could remember. I think it was caused by: Nothing really she had this phone for a long time, its a non working phone with a Google account recovery to reopen it but she doesn't remember it.

If that smartphone always belonged to her, then she can still unlock it by remembering her old Google account. To find out the old Google account, she needs to visit this Web page and start with "I don't know my username" to recover her user name first. Then, she needs to revisit the Web page and click "I don't know my password", enter her recovered user name, and reset the password. If that did not help, then your other options are visiting the store or service center with a proof of purchase for a fix or finding a security hole, which are very specific to your device and Android version. There are no other options, unfortunately, besides the aforementioned ones.

Will doing this soft reset help to get passed the verify Google account portion of seeing up my phone?

I keep entering my Google account and password and it just keeps going back to the same screen. Stuck in what is like a never ending circle. Trying to save my data, but my phone locked me out and factory reset was my only option. Now I cannot get passed the verify Google account part of the set-up. I have tried: I have tried accessing my Gmail from another device with no problems, but this verify screen won't let me passed it. I think it was caused by: I feel asleep while on my phone and when I woke up in the morning, it had a passcode on it, and I have NO idea what it was, so after many attempts to unlock it, I was completely locked out.
