How to Bypass Google Account Verification on LG K40 2020 lm-x420

In this tutorial, I’m going to share the latest 2020 hack to Bypass FRP / Google Lock on LG K40 without PC.

The earlier exploit got fixed in the recent K40 Software Update. After the Android Update, the Switch Access option is removed from the Accessibility Settings.

The above Google Verification screen shows up if the device had a Screen Lock (PIN, Pattern or Password) as well as Google Account & you performed a Hard reset using Volume Down & Power Button.

In the earlier K40 FRP Bypass tutorial, we used the Switch Access option in the Accessibility settings as the first step.

Check out the above screenshot. Switch Access is missing from Accessibility Settings after the April 2020 Security Update.

The good news is there is another way out to bypass the Google Verification Screen on LG K40. Follow the below step by step tutorial with the screenshots to make your phone usable once again –

We are going to divide the FRP Bypass Tutorial into 4 parts for the ease of understanding –

STEP 1: Setting up a SIM Card lock using another phone

We have to insert a locked SIM into our LG K40.

For this purpose, we need another phone

I’m using LG Aristo 2 to lock a MetroPCS SIM card – 

If using an LG Android Smartphone, Go to Settings < General < Lock Screen & Security < Set up SIM Card lock

Toggle on “Lock SIM Card”.

When prompted enter the default MetroPCS SIM PIN 1234 and hit “OK”.

Now it says “SIM card lock enabled”.

Remove this locked SIM from Aristo 2 & insert it in LG K40.

Once you’ve inserted the locked SIM, Long-Press the Power button and restart your K40.

STEP 2: Receiving an Image File via Bluetooth on LG K40

Enter the SIM Lock PIn we set earlier i.e 1234

There is a notification on the screen “Not signed in”.

We have to unlock the screen by swiping from this notification towards the bottom of the screen. 

Follow the arrow in the above screenshot.

Don’t swipe in the upward direction.

If done correctly, you’ll see the notification panel on the top.

(If you don’t get the notification panel, restart the phone and try it again)


Long-Press the “Bluetooth icon”

Turn on Bluetooth and send an image file from another device to K40.
