In this post, I’m going to share the detailed procedure to bypass google verification on LG K40 without using any app or computer. This is the easiest & Sureshot method to bypass google account on LG K40. You can follow the step by step tutorial with screenshots to restore your K40 back to the working state.

How to bypass Google Verification on LG K40

The google lock comes into effect on resetting the K40 using hard keys, i.e volume down & power button.

In such a case, Google’s Factory Reset Protection (FRP) won’t let you complete the setup wizard until you sign in with the last synced Google account or enter your secure lock screen pin/password/pattern, etc.

You can see the above screenshots. I’m stuck on the Google verification screen on my K40.

It asks for the last synced google account or the security pin to get past this screen.  We have to use a hack to bypass this screen.


Let’s divide the whole process into 4 steps for the ease of understanding –


STEP 1: Gettings access to Google Maps app using Accessibility Settings
