Your Google account offers more than just keeping your data safe, it also has features that can keep strangers from accessing your phone.
You might have encountered a Google verification page on your phone after resetting it or after buying a second-hand phone. Well, that is called the Google FRP Lock.
Although it’s a great feature, it becomes a burden to some people, especially if they have forgotten their email/password or they are not the first owner of the device. If they can’t unlock the Google lock, they won’t be able to open the phone.
Now, if you’re currently dealing with this situation, don’t worry, there are ways to unlock Google a locked phone, and I listed the best ones on this page. Check them out.
Method 1:Unlock Google Locked Phone via Forgot Email/Password
If you own the phone and forgot the email/password of the Google account, you may reset the email/password of the account to unlock the phone. Although this will only work if you have set up a recovery email or phone on the account.
On the verification page, type in your email and hit Next.
Then on the password page, tap the Forgot Password option.
Next, choose where you want the recovery link to be sent (backup email or phone number).
Open the link on another device and set up a new password. After that use the new password to unlock the Google locked phone.
Method 2: Unlock Google Locked Phone without Computer
On phones like Alcatel, TLC, Motorola, etc, a Talkback feature is available and it can be used to bypass Google Locks. These phone brands show a welcome screen with visible options even if it’s locked, so we are going to take advantage of that. Now, this method is a bit complicated, so make sure that you read and follow each step carefully.
First, access the WIFI screen next to the Welcome page to connect to a WIFI network.
Go back to the Welcome screen and tap Vision. Then select the Talkback option. After that, you should see the Talkback page.
Note: You can mute or lower the volume if you don’t want to hear the voice assistant.
Next, draw a mirrored L on the screen. This will activate some options. Select Allow, then tap on Use Voice Commands, then hit Allow again.
Once the Voice Command is activated, your phone will start listening to you. What you have to do next is say “Open Google Assistant” loud and clear.
If the Google Assistant is open say “Open YouTube”. If you hear a chime sound, it means that the assistant heard what you said. If not, try saying it again.
On YouTube double-press and hold the Volume buttons and select Turn On on the Talkback option, then access the buttons again to suspend the feature.
Next, tap the Account icon, then select Help and Feedback. On the search bar, type in “Delete and disable apps on Android”. Scroll down and tick “Go to Application Settings”.
Tap Android Setup then choose Force Stop. Go back, then find Google Play Services and click on it. Then tick Disable and Force Stop.
Now, go back to the Welcome screen and tap Agree on the Terms and Service. Then hit Skip on the next screen. After that, you should see the Home screen.
Then go to Settings, choose System, and tap Reset. After that select Factory Reset.
Wait for a few minutes until the reset is finished. After that, you can freely use your phone without the Google Lock.
