LG produced one of the best phones of all time. And even though the company stopped manufacturing phones in 2021, many people, including me, still use their LG devices.
Although LG phones are great, some users still need help with issues like getting locked out of their LG phones because they forgot their passwords or due to system issues.
Well, I did experience the same thing a couple of months ago and it was so stressful. I can’t use my phone for anything. That’s why I looked for some solutions and luckily I found some!
If you’re dealing with the same problem, don’t worry, I will help you out! This article will show you different ways to bypass an LG lock screen without a reset or computer.
Method 1: Bypass Lock Screen on LG Phone via Forgot Password
If you only want to use your phone to bypass the lock screen, you should try using the Forgot Password. If your LG device has an Android version 4, 5, and lower like LG Optimus L7, Nexus 4, LG G4, and more.
To bypass your lock screen using this feature, you need to have access to the Google account credentials used on the phone (email and password).
Type in the wrong password on your lock screen until you see the Forgot Password button.
Click on it and choose to enter your Google account credentials.
Type in your email and password after that you will need to create a new PIN/Pattern. After that, your LG phone should be unlocked.
Method 2: Bypass LG Lock Screen without Reset via ADM
If you want to bypass your phone without having to lose your files, try unlocking your phone via the Android Debug Bridge or ADB. It is a program accessed through the Command Prompt of a Windows PC. This program can make certain changes on your LG phone like formatting and bypassing the lock screen.
For this method to work, the USB Debugging feature should be enabled on your LG device before it is locked, otherwise, it will fail.
Grab a USB cord and use it to connect your phone to your PC.
On your keyboard hit the Windows key and the R button. After that, type in CMD and hit Enter.
From there, enter the following codes: adb shell rm /data/system/gesture.key then press Enter.
Wait for it to load and after a while, your LG lock screen should be bypassed.
