How to Bypass Google Account on LG Stylo 3 Plus MetroPCS & T Mobile 2018
Step 1: Getting access to Phone Settings
Since, Android Lollipop, when doing factory data reset using volume down + power button (via recovery mode), we need to verify the last synced google account as a security measure to complete the factory reset process.
You can see that I’ve done a hard reset via recovery mode and I’m on the welcome screen of the setup wizard.
I’ve connected my phone to the Wifi network to proceed further.
You can see, I’m stuck on the google verification page with this message “This device was reset. To continue, sign in with a Google Account that was previously synced on this device.”
So, in case you’ve forgotten your Google account details then follow the steps below to bypass this Google’s Factory Reset Protection ( FRP) screen.
Let’s begin the process by going back to the Welcome screen of the setup wizard and tap on “Accessibility” as shown above.
In Accessibility, click on the first option i.e Vision and turn ON Talkback by sliding the toggle to ON position.
Now that talkback is ON, make an L on screen as shown above.
A “Global Context Menu” pop-up would appear.
Double-tap on “Talkback Settings” to open it.
Now when we’re on the “Talkback Settings” page, we would suspend talkback by pressing both Volume UP & Down keys simultaneously. Double-tap on “OK” to suspend talkback.
On “Talkback Settings” page, scroll down and open “Help & feedback”
Now select “About Switch Access for Android”.
Scroll down and look for the youtube video as shown above.
Tap on the share button marked with the red arrow, this way we would land to the youtube app.
Again tap on the share icon on the top right corner.
Among the list of options, tap on Gmail
In the Gmail app, we’ve to add an email account other than Google, it can be yahoo mail, Hotmail etc.
To do this click on “Add an email address” as shown above.
I’ve added my yahoo mail account.
As the yahoo mail account is added, click on “TAKE ME TO GMAIL”
Now, Tap on the “3 dots” icon on the right-hand top corner & select “Settings”
Again tap on the “3 dots” icon, then “Manage Accounts” and finally “CONTINUE” to land to the Settings app.
Step 2: Disabling Google Play Services and Pairing with a Bluetooth Headset
In “Settings”, select “General tab and open “Fingerprints & Security”
Now look for “Phone administrators” and open it.
We’ve to Deactivate the “Android Device Manager”.
Tap on “DEACTIVATE” and when its OFF go 2 steps back to the Main Settings page.
Now open “Apps”. Scroll down and look for “Google Play Services”
We’ve to “Force Stop” and “Disable” Google Play Services.
Tap on “Disable” and confirm the action.
Now select “Force Stop” and do the same.
Again go 2 steps back to the Main Settings Page.
This time we need to pair a Bluetooth Headset with our LG Stylo 3 Plus.
Turn on your Bluetooth headset and Pair it with your Stylo 3 Plus.
I’ve paired my Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-111 as shown above.
Once paired, restart the phone.
