What will you do when you’re locked out on your K92 5G due to a forgotten PIN, Pattern, or Password? You’ll try to hard reset the phone using the volume down & power buttons (via Recovery Mode).
However, to access the Recovery Mode, you need to power off the phone. On K92 5G it doesn’t let you turn off/restart the phone without unlocking the screen.
So, how to recover K92 5G when locked out? Let’s find out with the help of the below troubleshooting guide –
How to factory reset LG K92 5G without Password/PIN/Pattern
I’m locked up on my LG K92 5G. I’ve forgotten the lock screen password.
I kept trying with different passwords in the hope to get an account recovery option in the form of “Forgot Password”.
Unfortunately, only the wait time keeps increasing after every few failed attempts. We cannot bypass the K92 lock screen without reset.
To hard reset the phone we need to power it off.
It’s not allowing me to turn off the phone without unlocking the screen.
I’m not able to even restart the phone.
So now we are going to force restart our K92 5G.
Press & hold the power and volume down buttons until the phone restarts.
When the “LG K92 5G” logo appears, release the power key for a moment and hold it again (do not leave the volume down key).
Keep holding both the buttons to enter Recovery Mode.
We are now in Recovery Mode.
Use the volume rocker and power key to hard reset your K92.
Press the volume button to go down from No(Exit) to Yes. Now, click the power key to select “Yes”.
Once again move down from No to Yes and tap the power key to begin the reset.
The factory reset takes a few minutes.
Afterward, we reach the “Welcome” screen.
Let’s tap the “forward button” to begin the device setup.
Hit “Next” when you reach the “New Second Screen” page.
In the next step, we need to connect our K92 to a Wifi network. Connect it to the internet & click “Next”.
The phone will now stay on “Checking for updates” for a few minutes.
Then we reach the “Copy apps & data” screen. Click “Don’t copy” to proceed.
This time we are on the screen lock verification page. It’s asking for the lock screen password. There is one more option – “USE MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT INSTEAD”. Let’s click on it.
It brings me to the Google account verification screen. To get past this page, we need to sign in with the previously synced Google account.
Enter your Google account credentials and follow the on-screen prompts to reach the LG K92 home screen.
In case, you’ve forgotten the last synced Google account, follow the below hack to bypass the FRP lock on K92 5G –
How to bypass Google Verification on LG K92 5G without computer 2021 – LMK920
First of all, go 2 steps back from the “Verify your account” screen to the “Set internet connection” page.
We are now on the “Set Internet Connection” screen.
On this page, we need to tap the “Wifi button” & the “Next button” simultaneously.
In a few tries, you’ll be able to do it.
When done correctly, you’ll reach the “Google Services” page.
Tap “More” to proceed.
Accept the Google services terms and conditions to reach the “Secure your phone” screen.
Choose the option “Setup Pattern, PIN, or Password” and click “Next”.
This brings us to the “Protect your phone” screen.
Let’s use it to add a new Pattern, PIN, or Password.
I’ve selected the PIN option & added 1234 as the new PIN
Re-enter the PIN and click “OK”.
The screen lock has been changed. A confirmation text flashes on the screen.
After changing the screen lock, we are on the “Set Internet Connection” page.
Turn on Wifi and click “Next”.
Tap “Don’t copy” on the “Copy apps & data” screen.
After the recent update, it skips the screen lock verification page & directly takes us to the “Verify your account” screen. We need the “Verify PIN” screen to bypass the google verification.
To restore that page, we are going to hard reset the phone once again via Recovery Mode.
Long press the power key and choose “Power off” to turn off your K92.
Now, press the volume down + power keys to boot the phone.
When LG K92 5G appears, only release the power button for a moment and hold it again.
Now, keep holding both the buttons until you reach the “Factory Data Reset” page.
Go down from “No” to “Yes” with the volume key. Now press the power button once.
Repeat the steps.
Again move down from No to Yes and click the power key to reset your K92 5G.
After the reset, we are once again on the Welcome page.
Click the forward button to move ahead.
Now, connect your K92 to a Wifi network and tap “Next”.
Hit “Don’t copy” on the following screen.
This time it brings us to the “Verify PIN” screen.
Enter the PIN 1234 and click “OK”.
We have bypassed the Google verification.
Use the “Skip” option on the Google sign-in page to proceed further.
Now, accept the Google services terms and conditions.
Skip the AT&T account setup as of now.
Follow the on-screen prompts and keep moving ahead.
Exit the AT&T account setup. We can do it later.
Finally, we have reached the last page of the setup wizard.
Tick all the “I agree” checkboxes and hit “Done” to complete the setup wizard.
We have successfully landed on the LG K92 5G home screen by doing a hard reset without the password.
