I have an LG Premier L62VL, bought on eBay. I had to do a hard reset because it would constantly go to Google sign in and would not recognize any password attempts, so how does one go about bypassing the FRP? Thank you very much! :-)?

Since Hard Reset does not work after many attempts, how does one bypass the FRP (Factory Reset Protection, I believe)? I'm 60 y.o. And kind of new to this stuff. Did not see any info on how to bypass the FRP, when the hard reset does work, and it keeps asking to sign in with Google account previously synced to this phone, but won't accept the info put in. I have tried: Hard reset with original Google email and password. I think it was caused by: No clue. Software design? Don't know what else to try to get this phone to work.

This YouTube Tutorial walks you through the process of bypassing Google's FRP on an LG device. It should work, but if not then look at the process in other YouTube videos until you find one that works.

I wrongly deleted the WiFi password on my phone. Unfortunately, I forgot the password. Can I recover it?

I wrongly deleted the WiFi password on my phone. Unfortunately, I forgot the password. Can I recover it?

If it is just the WiFi password and not your phone's main password, you can easily create a new one. Go to settings on your phone, go to connectivity, go to WiFi and then reset your password from there. If your Tablet asks you for a new password, then enter 12345 because that is the default WiFi password for all Android devices. After that, you can enter a new password and re-create your WiFi password.

Unfortunately, There's is no way to recover the saved WiFi password on your phone if you have accidentally tapped on forget. However, you may do the following to regain your WiFi connection.

  • Ask the WiFi network owner for the password.
  • If it's your WiFi and you have forgotten your Password.
  • Please get your router's manual and then see if something is written there on how to reset and reconfigure WiFi settings.
  • Usually, to reset a router, you just have to press the reset button on the router.
  • Then to configure its WiFi. You need to connect your PC or phone to your Router then, browse to your router's address. The address is usually http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
  • Then enter username:admin and password:admin
  • Then after accessing your router's address, you can now start on configuring your WiFi settings.

Hi. I can't remember my password on my Moto G5. I normally use the fingerprint scanner, but as I switched it on and off again it asked me to enter the password again?

I fear I may be locked out completely if I try too many times.

You will need to make sure about these two things:

  • make sure you remember your email address (Gmail) and your password
  • make sure that you are connected via data connection or WiFi

When informed that you are blocked, you will be asked to provide your email and password. Once successful, you will be asked to make a new password/pattern. No data will be lost, just the previous password.

If you miss one, you will need to do the following:

  • turn off phone
  • press the following:

volume down

volume up

home button

  • wait until you see the Samsung logo
  • phone will reset

NOTE: All your data and apps will be lost
