UMX Unimax U696CL is an entry-level budget android smartphone that comes with Android 11 Go out of the box.
On U696CL the need for Google account verification arises when you hard factory reset the device using the volume up & power button. After the reset, you cannot complete the device setup until you verify with the lock screen PIN/Pattern/Password or the previously synced Google account.
In this post, we are going to use the latest 2022 trick to bypass the FRP lock on UMX U696CL Android 11 without a computer as follows –
I was locked out due to the forgotten password. To bypass the UMX U696CL lock screen I did a factory data reset via Recovery Mode.
After the reset, it brings me to the “Hi There” screen as shown above.
Let’s hit the “START” button to begin the setup.
In the next step, we are going to connect our device to the internet.
My phone is connected to a Wifi network and it’s getting ready. Let’s wait for a while.
The next page is “Connect to Wifi”. Choose “Don’t copy” to move ahead.
Now, I’m stuck on the “Verify password” screen.
To move ahead we either need the lock screen PIN/Pattern/Password or the previously synced Google account.
I do not remember either of the two.
Let’s use the latest 2022 method to bypass the FRP lock on UMX U696CL Android 11 as follows –
