LG Aristo 5 forgot password, pattern, pin / lock screen bypass

Apart from the Fingerprint lock, there are 3 primary locks on LG Aristo 5.  They are Password, Pattern & PIN. The fingerprint is a secondary lock. You can add a fingerprint only after setting up a primary screen lock.

It’s very important to make note of the screen lock PIN/Pattern/password during the setup. However, if you’ve already forgotten it, we need to look for a way out to bypass the lock screen.

Follow the step by step tutorial with screenshots to bypass your Aristo 5 lock screen in a few minutes –

How to bypass LG Aristo 5 lock screen without reset

First of all, let’s try to bypass the lock screen without losing the precious internal storage data –

I’m stuck on the Aristo 5 lock screen and I don’t remember the lock screen password.

Let’s keep trying to unlock the screen. We may get an alternate option to restore the phone (such as the Google account).

After 5 wrong attempts, we need to wait for 30 seconds to try again.

I tried up to 50 times. Only the wait time increased after every few failed attempts.

So, one thing clear there is no way to bypass the Aristo 5 lock screen without a reset.

Let’s try to hard reset the phone using the volume down and power button.

To hard reset the Aristo 5, we need to power off the phone to boot into Recovery Mode.

It’s not allowing to even power off the phone. I can power off the phone by draining the battery, but that will take a long time.

The next option is to restart the phone.

It’s not letting me even restart the phone without unlocking the screen.

The last option to shut down the phone is “Force Restart”.

Keep holding the Power & Volume Down keys for 10 seconds or until the phone restarts.

During the force restart, as soon as “LG Aristo 5” appears on the screen, release the power key and hold it again until it brings you to the “Factory data reset” screen.  Don’t release the volume down button during the whole operation.

The white “Factory data reset” screen is also known as the Recovery Mode. It helps us to restore the phone when locked out.

In the recovery mode, we need to move down from “No (Exi)” to “Yes” using the volume down key. Press the Power button to confirm this selection.

Repeat the above steps. Again move down from “No” to “Yes” and hit the Power button to “OK” this action.

  1. I never got a use your google account instead it went straight to sign in with google. Ive been watching video after video they all the same and it still does the same thing again

  2. Okay so I too got stuck on the google varification screen the second time around. I did a hard reset I entered my new pin it worked but going through the welcome again I keep getting stuck at the same spot. I’m never able to skip the google login

  3. I got stuck after doing the pin and finger print. I went all the way back to the beginning and followed the instructions but after hitting don’t copy, it didn’t bring up the pin screen it went straight to the Google login screen. I have tried it several times and it’s still not working and I can’t change the password for it.
