Are you locked out on your Premier Pro Plus because you don’t remember the PIN, Pattern, or Password? Don’t worry you’re not alone. We tend to forget the lock screen credentials especially if it was a new one & never used before.
To bypass the Premier Pro Plus lock screen we need to put our phone into recovery mode. The recovery mode is used to restore the phone to factory default with a hard reset. Unfortunately, we cannot bypass the Premier Pro plus screen lock without a reset.
In a few minutes, you’ll be able to use your phone once again. Let’s see how to bypass the Premier Pro Plus lock screen as follows –
LG Premier Pro Plus Forgot Password, PIN, Pattern – Locked Out / How to bypass LG Premier Pro Plus Lock Screen
I’m locked out on my LG Premier Pro Plus. I don’t remember the lock screen password.
Let’s reset the phone using the Recovery Mode. To put our phone into recovery mode, we need to turn off the phone.
It’s not allowing to power off the phone without unlocking the screen.
A similar error shows up when I try to restart my phone.
So, now the only option left is to force restart our Premier Pro Plus.
To force restart our phone, we need to press & hold the volume down and power keys until the phone restarts.
Now, during the restart, when the LG logo appears on the screen or when the phone vibrates, release the power key for a moment and hold it again (Don’t release the volume down key).
Keep holding both the keys until you reach the “Factory data reset” screen.
We are now in Recovery mode.
Use the volume rocker to move up/down and select an option with the power button.
Let’s move down from “No (Exit)” to “Yes” with the volume down key. Press the power key once to select the “Yes” option.
Again move down from “No” to “Yes” and press the power button once.
The factory data reset is initiated. The phone is getting erased now. We need to wait for a few minutes.
After a while, we have reached the “Welcome” page of the setup wizard.
Hit the “Forward arrow” to move ahead.
Click “Next” on the “New Second Screen” page.
In the next step, we need to connect to the internet via Wifi or Mobile data.
It’s checking for updates, let’s wait for a few seconds.
Now, tap “Don’t copy” on the “Copy apps & data” page.
This brings me to the lock screen verification page. I don’t know the screen lock password, let’s use the alternate option – “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”.
We have reached the Google verification page. Here we need to sign in with the previously synced Google account on this device.
Sign in to your Google account and finish the setup wizard to reach the Premier Pro Plus home screen.
In case, you don’t remember the last synced Google account, then follow the below hack to bypass the Google lock without a computer –
