How to unblock a Google account on Android: step by step instructions

All the actions that occur in your gadget, in one way or another, interact with the services of Google. Some standard programs have been replaced by alternative applications produced by Google. Recently, Google services have been playing a role in the factory reset process. Without entering your Google password, you can’t even delete all the files on your phone now. We’ll tell you how to unlock this Google account restriction on Android phones.

Tenorshare 4uKey (Samsung only)

We assume you’ve already guessed that breaking through Google’s protection is problematic unless you use official methods to restore access. You’ll have to look for bugs and then ways to exploit them afterwards. Fortunately, some phones do have them. Let’s say more, there are already ready-made programs that allow you to bypass the protection of the developer of the Android OS. However, they only work on Samsung phones (and some Chinese models).


In general, follow the steps below to reset your password:

  • Download the Tenorshare 4uKey program to your computer or laptop.


  • Run it. You will be greeted by the installer window. Confirm the download.
  • Select the unlock type. You’ll be offered to disable lock screen or remove FR In case of our problem choose FRP.
  • Connect the phone to your PC via USB.


  • Enable debug mode on the phone if needed and allow for USB installation. To do this open the developer menu (if you don’t have one, go to “About device” and click on the build number line 7 times, then go back to the main menu) and scroll down to the debugging section. Sometimes this section is forgotten to be translated. In that case, look for “Debug USB”.
  • Run the reset operation on the computer.


This way you can solve the problem without restoring the password, especially if it is almost impossible to do so.

Official methods

Sometimes it is worth not looking for workarounds, but to use the official ways to unlock, of which Google has quite a few. The simplest of them is to restore the lost password. Usually it is enough to have access to the backup email or phone number you specified when registering. To reset your password, follow these steps:


  • Go to the “Security” tab, and then to the “Password” section.


  • Press the “Change password” button.


  • Specify the current one or press the “Restore” button.

If you are not authorized in the service, then on the main page you will see the button “Forgot your password”. Click on it and go through the recovery process. It is also possible that you are using an account belonging to a corporate network. In this case, the password can be reset to you by the network administrator when prompted.

Alternative methods

Actually resetting through the GUI is a new and convenient solution, but no one cancelled the old resets through Recovery. You don’t need a password to enter it, and the gadget won’t ask for any Google data when resetting. Follow the steps below to work with the recovery:

  • Turn off your phone completely.
  • Hold down the power button and the volume down button.


  • Wait for the console menu to launch.
  • Navigate with the power buttons to “Wipe Data” and then select the “Factory reset” button.


  • Confirm the action by pressing the power button (on some models the volume up button is responsible for the confirmation).
  • Wait for your phone to reboot.

Done. However, the developers may block Recovery. In this case only flashing through Fast Boot will be the salvation. But that is a separate story. In addition, the flashing algorithm is described in detail in other materials on our website.

Thank you for reading it.
