To bypass the FRP lock on Aristo 5, we need to pull out the keyboard.
Tap the blank field – “Email or Phone” to pull out the keyboard.
Now, click the small keyboard icon at the bottom of the keyboard.
A “Default keyboard” window appears on the screen. Choose “Settings” to move ahead.
The next page is “Manage keyboards”.
3 keyboards are listed on this page. Select the first keyboard i.e. “Gboard”.
On the Gboard settings screen, touch the “3 dots” icon and choose “Help & Feedback”.
The following screen is “Support”.
Pick the first article on this page – “Delete or disable apps on Android”.
On the next page, look for the link – “Tap to go to Application Settings” and click on it.
This will bring you to the “App Info” page.
Scroll down and select “Settings”. Now, hit “Open” to access the Settings app.
In Settings, click on “Fingerprints” and then hit “Next”.
Now, we have reached the “Select Screen Lock” page.
Using this screen, we can replace the old lock screen password with a new Pattern, PIN, or Password.
I’m setting up a new PIN code 1234 as shown above.
Re-enter the PIN code and click “OK”.
A confirmation text appears at the bottom – “Screen lock has been changed”.
Now, using the new PIN code we can bypass the Google account.

Long-press the power button and choose “POWER OFF”.
Wait for the phone to shut down.
