There are 3 variants of LG K31 based on different carriers.
The Factory unlocked variant was the first to launch with model number lmk300qm at a launch price of $149. Then came the Spectrum Mobile K31 with model number lmk300qm6 and the latest K31 is Rebel for Tracfone with model number l355dl. They all come with Android 10 out of the box.
In this post, we are going to learn how to bypass Google lock/verification on LG K31 using the latest 2021 hack without a computer, SIM, or Bluetooth device.
Google’s factory reset protection (FRP) is activated when you’re locked out on your K31 & you reset the phone using the volume down and power button.
I was locked out on my K31. I reset the phone via Recovery Mode.
Now, I’ve landed on the Welcome screen of the Setup wizard.
Let’s use the forward button to move ahead.
Hit “Next” on the “New second screen” page.
In the next step, we need to connect to the internet via Wifi or Mobile data.
Now, It’s checking for updates.
Let’s skip the “Copy apps and data” page.
We are now on the screen lock verification page. I don’t remember the lock screen password. There is an alternate option “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”. Let’s select this option.
We are now on the Google verification page. To get past this screen we need to sign-in with the previously synced Google account on this device.
As I don’t remember the Google account credentials, I’m going to use the latest hack to get past this Google lock screen on my K31 as follows –
