How to unlock LG Stylo 6 without password, pattern lock, pin code /LG Stylo 6 password reset

I’m locked out on my LG Stylo 6. I don’t remember the lock screen password.

Let’s try to bypass the lock screen without reset.

 

I’m trying with different passwords, in the hope of an account recovery option in the form of “Forgot Password” or “Google account sign-in”.

After every few failed attempts, only the wait time increased.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to unlock the Stylo 6 screen lock without reset.

Now, to factory reset the phone we need to power it off.

It’s not allowing me to turn off the phone. The screen shows an error – “Unlock the phone to power off”.

 

The same thing happened when I tried to restart my Stylo 6.

 

Our last resort is a force restart.

Press and hold the volume down and power keys until the phone restarts.

 

During the reboot, when LG Stylo 6 logo appears on the screen, release the power button and hold it again.

Don’t leave the volume down key.

Now, keep holding both the keys until you reach the “Factory Data Reset” page.

 

This is the Recovery Mode. It is used to hard reset the phone when locked out.

We need to use the volume rocker and power keys. The touch doesn’t work in this mode.

Tap the volume down button to move from “No(Exit)” to “Yes”. Now, click the power button once.

 

Again move down from No to Yes & click the power key to reset your Stylo 6.

The phone data is getting wiped. This process takes a few minutes.

After the reset, I’ve reached the “Welcome” page.

Let’s click the forward button to complete the device setup.

 

 

Hit “Next” when you reach the “New Second Screen” page.

Now, connect your Stylo 6 to a Wifi network.

 

The phone is checking for updates. We need to wait for a while.

Afterward, I’ve reached the “Copy apps & data” screen. Choose “Don’t copy” to move ahead.

 

It brings me to the password verification page. I don’t know the lock screen password so I clicked on  -“USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”.

This time we are on Google’s “Verify your account” screen. To get past this screen, we need to sign in with the previously synced Google account.

Sign in with your account and follow the on-screen prompts to finish the setup wizard.

In case, you don’t remember the Google account credentials, follow the below hack to bypass the FRP lock –

How to bypass Google Verification on LG Stylo 6 without computer 2021 lm-q730

 

On the Google verification page, tap “Email or phone” to bring out the keyboard.

 

 

 

There is a “small keyboard icon” at the bottom-right corner of the keyboard. Tap on it.

This brings out a “Default keyboard” window. Click the “Settings” option.

 

Now, we have reached the “Manage Keyboards” page. Select the first option – “Gboard”.

 

 

On the following page, hit the “3 dots icon” and choose “Help & feedback”.

 

 

Select the first option on the “Support” page – “Delete or disable apps on Android”.

On the next page, look for “Tap to go to application settings” and click on it.

Now, we have reached the “App Info” page.

Scroll down and choose “Settings”.

Click “Open” on the following page to launch the “Settings app”.

 

 

In Settings, Choose “Fingerprints” and click “Next”.

 

 

This brings us to the “Select Screen Lock” page.

We are going to use this screen to add a new PIN code, Pattern lock, or Password.

I’ve chosen the “PIN” option.

 

Enter the PIN twice and tap “OK” to confirm.

I’ve set up 1234 as the new PIN code.

 

The screen lock has been changed.

Now, let’s go back and use this new PIN to bypass the Google verification.

 

I’ve reached the Welcome screen.

Tap the forward button to proceed.

Click “Next” on the following page.

Choose “Don’t copy” when you reach the “Copy apps & data” screen.

After the recent security update, it skips the screen lock verification page and directly takes us to the “Verify your account” screen.

We cannot bypass the Google account without the PIN verification screen. To restore that page, we are going to factory reset the phone using the volume down + power button. 

 

Long-press the power button and tap “POWER OFF” as shown above.

 

Once the phone is off, press and hold the volume down & power keys.

When the “LG Stylo 6” logo shows up, release the power button for a moment and hold it again.

Don’t leave the volume down key.

Keep holding both the buttons until you reach the “Factory Data Reset” page.

 

We are once again in recovery mode.

Move down from “No” to “Yes” and click the power key.

 

Again go down from “No” to “Yes” and tap the power button to reset your Stylo 6.

 

After a few minutes, we have landed on the “Welcome” page.

Tap the “forward arrow” and hit “Next” on the following screen.

 

Hit “Don’t copy” on the “Copy apps & data” page.

 

This time we get the PIN verification page.

Verify with the PIN 1234 and click “OK”.

 

The PIN verification is successful. We have bypassed the Google verification.

Tap the “Skip” option to bypass the Google account sign-in.

 

Now, accept the Google services terms and conditions.

 

Hit “OK” on the following page.

 

The last page of the setup wizard is the “Legal Documents” page.

Tick the “I agree” checkbox and tap “Done” to finish the setup wizard.

We have successfully landed on the LG Stylo 6 home screen thus unlocking the screen without a password.
