LG Stylo 5 lock screen bypass -forgot password,pin,pattern- locked out

LG Stylo 5 offers 5 kinds of screen locks. Fingerprint & face recognition, are secondary screen locks. They are backed up with a primary lock such as PIN, Pattern, or password.

However, if you forget the primary screen lock, you don’t get a recovery option. It’s always better to note down the lock screen credentials during setup.

If you’re already locked out on Stylo 5, let’s find a way out to recover our phone back to the working state.

First of all, let’s try to recover our phone without doing a reset –
