In this post, we are going to use the latest and easiest method to bypass the Google verification on LG Journey without using a SIM or Bluetooth.
The Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on LG Journey is activated when you hard reset the phone using volume down & power buttons. After the reset, it asks for the previously synced Google account to complete the device setup.
Using the below hack, in a couple of minutes, you’ll be able to use your phone once again –
After doing a hard reset via the recovery mode, my phone has reached the “Welcome” screen.
Let’s tap the forward button to proceed.
Now, connect your phone to a Wifi network and click “NEXT”.
The phone is now checking for updates. Let’s wait for a while.
Choose “Set up as new” on the “Copy apps & data” screen.
Now, it brings me to the pattern verification page. I don’t remember the correct pattern. I’ll pick the alternate option – “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”.
This time we are on the Google verification page. It’s asking to sign in with the previously synced Google account on this specific device.

On the “Set Internet Connection” screen, you need to tap the “Wifi button” and the “NEXT button” at the same time.

I’ve picked the PIN option.
Choose “No, thanks” on the “Secure Startup” page and click “NEXT”.

Re-enter the PIN and tap OK.
The “Screen lock has been changed”. We are all good.
