How to bypass screen lock Password/Pattern/PIN on LG Stylo 5 Android 10 in 2022

I’m stuck on the pattern lock screen on my LG Stylo 5 Android 10. I don’t remember the correct pattern.

To bypass the pattern lock, we need to enter the recovery mode to hard reset our Stylo 5. It’s not possible to recover the phone without a reset.

To put our phone into recovery mode, let’s power it off.

It’s not allowing me to turn off the phone without unlocking the screen. So, now we are going to restart it.

 

During the restart, we are going to use the volume down + power keys to enter recovery mode.

Long-press the power button and choose “Restart” as shown above.

 

Now, immediately press & hold the volume down + power keys.

 

During the restart when LG Stylo 5 logo appears, only release the power button for a moment and hold it again. Don’t leave the volume down key during the entire process.

Now, keep pressing both the keys until you enter the Recovery Mode.

 

In recovery mode, we need to use the volume rocker and power button.

This mode is used to reset the phone when locked out.

Move down from “No(Exit)” to “Yes” using the volume key. Now select “Yes” with the power button.

 

Again go down from No to Yes and start the factory reset process with the power key.

After a few minutes, we reach the “Welcome” screen.

This is the first page of the setup wizard. Click the “Forward button” to proceed.

Now, we are going to connect our Stylo 5 to the internet using Wifi or Mobile data.

 

After connecting to the internet, it’s checking for updates.

In a few minutes, we reach the “Copy apps & data” screen. Click “Don’t copy” to skip this step.

 

Now, we are once again on the pattern lock verification screen. But there is one more option this time – USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD. Let’s pick this option.

As the device was reset via recovery mode, the factory reset protection gets enabled. We need to verify with the previously synced Google account on this device to bypass this screen.

Sign in with your Google account and follow the on-screen prompts to reach the Stylo 5 home screen.

In case you don’t remember the last synced Google account, you can follow the below method to bypass the FRP lock on LG Stylo 5 Android 10 –

To bypass the Google account verification we need the keyboard.

Tap the blank field “Email or Phone” to pull out the keyboard.

Now, click the “small keyboard icon” at the bottom-right corner.

If you don’t have this keyboard icon on your Stylo 5, you can follow the alternate Bluetooth method –

When we click the keyboard icon, a “Default keyboard” window appears at the bottom. Click “Settings” on this window.

Now, we have reached the “Manage keyboards” page.

Select the first keyboard – “Gboard”.

On the following screen, click the “3 dots icon” and select “Help & Feedback”.

 

 

Now, we have reached the “Support” screen. Select the first option on this page – “Delete or disable apps on Android”.

On the next screen look for the link – “Tap to go to Application Settings” and click on it.

 

It brings us to the “App Info” page.

Scroll down and select “Settings” to reach its app info screen.

Now, hit “Open” to launch the Settings app.

 

 

In Settings Go to “Fingerprints” and touch “Next”.

 

 

It brings me to the “Select Screen Lock” page.

We can use this screen to replace the old pattern lock with a new lock screen PIN, Pattern, or Password.

Let’s choose the PIN option and add an easy PIN code 1234

 

 

Re-enter the PIN and tap “OK”.

We have successfully replaced the old Pattern lock with this new PIN. Now, let’s go back and bypass the Google lock with the PIN code 1234

 

 

 

Keep hitting the back key to reach the first page.

 

Click the forward arrow on the Welcome screen to proceed further.

 

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

It skipped the screen lock verification page & brought me directly to the “Verify your account” screen. We need the PIN verification option to bypass the Google account.

To restore the “Verify PIN” screen, we need to hard reset the phone once again via Recovery Mode.

 

Turn off your Stylo 5 to enter recovery mode.

 

 

Now, press & hold the volume down + power buttons.

When the LG Stylo 5 logo shows up, only release the power key for a moment and hold it again.

Keep holding both the keys to reach the “Factory Data Reset” page.

 

Go down from No to Yes with the volume button.  Now, click the power key once to select Yes.

 

Again move down from No to Yes and hit the power key to reset your Stylo 5.

After a few minutes, I’ve landed on the Welcome screen.

Click the forward button to proceed.

Now, connect your phone to a Wifi network.

 

 

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

This time we get the “Verify PIN” screen. Enter the PIN code we set up earlier i.e. 1234

 

The PIN verification was successful. Let’s use the skip option to bypass the Google account sign-in.

 

Now, accept the Google services terms and conditions.

 

We have reached the last page of the setup wizard.

Tick all the “I agree” checkboxes and click “DONE” to finish the setup wizard.

 

We have successfully landed on the LG Stylo 5 home screen thus bypassing the screen lock pattern.
