Change Google account after reset

Last update:

If you have forgotten your Google Account password associated with a mobile device or have purchased a second-hand phone or tablet whose previous owner did not remove the FRP lock before resetting it, and you cannot contact them to unlock it, there is a method to associate the device with a new Google account.

It is important to note that this method will delete all content on the device, as well as all associated accounts, which implies the loss of access to the previously configured Google account, as well as photos, videos, messages and applications installed.

This is a somewhat laborious process that requires some basic knowledge about using Android devices, but if you follow each step carefully, you will be able to carry it out.

Remember that this method should only be used if you are the legitimate owner of the device and you take responsibility for your actions. We are not responsible for illegitimate use or possible damage caused to the device. We also have no relationship with the apps or websites mentioned below. This help article has been created solely for the purpose of assisting users who cannot recover their Google account after trying all available methods.

If you know the Google email associated with the device and have access to the recovery phone number, you can request a new password instead of following this method.
