The OnePlus Nord N10 offers 5 kinds of screen locks in the form of Fingerprint, Face Recognition, PIN, Pattern, & Password.
Fingerprint & Face recognition, are secondary locks that are always backed up with a PIN, Pattern, or Password.
However, what to do if you forget the primary lock i.e the PIN, Pattern, or Password?
In this post, we are going to learn how to bypass the lock screen on Nord N10 5G when locked out –
How to bypass the lock screen on Nord N10 5G Android 11
You can see, I’m stuck on the Nord N10 lock screen. I don’t remember the password.
Unfortunately, we can not bypass the N10 screen lock without reset.
To get past the lock screen we need to factory reset the phone via Recovery Mode.
To put our N10 into recovery mode, we need to power off the phone.
Long-press the power button and choose “Power off” as shown above.
When the phone turns off, Press & hold the Volume Down + Power keys to power on the phone.
Release both the keys when the 1+ logo appears on the screen.
We are now in the OnePlus recovery mode.
Tap “Forgot Password” at the bottom-right corner.
A warning appears on the page – “You will LOSE everything(Music, pics, etc)”
Hit “OK” to accept the warning.
Tap “Ok” one more time to begin the factory data reset.
The phone is getting erased now. We need to wait for a few minutes.
After some time, I’ve reached the “Hello” screen of the setup wizard.
Tap “Start” to move ahead.
Now, “Agree” to the OnePlus terms and conditions.
To proceed further, we need to connect our Nord N10 to the internet.
My phone is now connected to the “Home Wi-Fi-4G” network.
It’s checking for updates. Let’s wait for a while.
Click “Don’t copy” to skip the “Copy apps & data” page.
This brings me to the “Verify Password” page. It’s asking for the screen lock password.
As I don’t remember the password, I’ll choose the 2nd option – “Use my Google account instead”.
We are now on the “Verify your account” screen. We need to enter the Google account details of the previously synced account.
Sign in with your Google account and follow the on-screen prompts to reach the Nord N10 home screen.
In case, you don’t remember the Google account credentials, follow the below hack to bypass the FRP lock –
How to bypass Google Verification on OnePlus Nord N10 5G Android 11 without a computer
First of all, we need to go 2 steps back from the “Verify your account” page to the “Connect to Wifi” screen.
On the “Connect to Wifi” page, Go to “See all Wi-Fi networks” > “Add new network”.
Now, the keyboard appears on the page.
Tap the “microphone icon” at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
When the pop-up request appears on the screen, choose “DENY”.
Repeat the previous steps.
Tap the “Mic icon” and select “DENY”.
Hit the Mic icon one last time.
This time tap the “ALLOW” option at the bottom of the screen.
This will bring you to the “App Info” page of the Gboard app.
Select “Permissions” and tap the “Search icon” at the top-right corner.
Enter the term settings in the search bar and wait for the search results to appear.
Now, scroll down on this page and select “Settings – App Info”.
On the Settings-App Info page, choose “Open” to launch the Settings app.
Now, select “Apps & notifications” on the Settings page.
Now, Go to “App Info” > “Android Setup”.
We have to “Force Stop” the Android Setup app.
Once done, go one step back.
This time choose the “Google Play Services” app.
Tap “Disable” as shown above.
Click “Disable app” when prompted.
Now, “FORCE STOP” the Google play services app.
After doing this, go back to the first page of the setup wizard using the back key.
Keep going back until you reach the “Hello” screen.
Now tap “Start” and “Agree” to the OnePlus terms and conditions.
“Skip” the “Connect to mobile network” page.
Now, we have reached the “Copy apps & data” page.
On this page, tap the back button once to reach the “Connect to Wifi” page.
There is a new option on the “Connect to Wifi” page – “Set up offline”.
Click on “Set up offline” & then “CONTINUE” as shown above.
We have bypassed the Google account. The “Verify your account” screen is not showing anymore.
Tap “Agree” on the “Co-Creation Labs” page.
The next page is – “Set screen lock”. Tap “Skip” to proceed further. We can add a screen lock later.
Now, choose the system font between “Roboto” and “OnePlus Sans” & hit “Next”.
In the next step, we need to set the navigation style with or without a navigation bar.
Finally, click “Start” to finish the setup wizard.
