Can't sign in to Samsung account after factory reset

I forgot my password and chose factory reset by turning my phone and holding volume up key, home button and power button together. It resulted in my phone being locked. But after reboot, it asks for Samsung account ID and password. While entering the ID and password, the processing fails and can't access my phone any more. I have reset my password several times, but still same result.

Someone can help me to resolve the issue.

All the Google account locks and frp locks are usually solved by programming boxes like Z3X and etc. I think Samsung will remove it for you if you provide proof of purchase.

FRP lock removal is doable via this method as shown in this link.

http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f777/uni...

You need the device to be on 6.0 (6.0.1 works too) marshmallow android OS as it's patched on Nougat. So downgrade to 6.0.1 if possible.

Alternatively if you are not comfortable didn't soemone that does FRP lock removal. Probably be harder to find someone in other countries.

simple and quickest way to fix this problem forever. It is not bypass, it will permanently remove samsung account and google account FRP.

by

So how does it remove the lock when it is enabled on a bootloader level?

by

Well the answer to removing from locks is to first downgrade from 7.0 Nougat to 6.0 marshmallow if you haven't already.

Then using the method specified in GSM forum to remove FRP lock not via flashing sboot or other files but is done using a program called realterm and a YouTube video.

I'll update my post in a bit. Note that if the phone is IMEI blocked you'll need to utilise a unlock box like z3x to change IMEI.

Ive literally removed from lock from a s7 on 7.0 via downgrade a few days ago and it was fairly easy following the video.

Ok, my six day lesson is over and I'll share with you some bits of wisdom learned along the way. First and foremost, yes Google has locked out of your device for your own good... Privacy activists, and quite honestly for theft deterrence too, have put in place a 72 hour count-down timer for recovery. It is in this case. Google, it appears, actually is trying to help you by sending you an email. In this case look for the last change in password or change in two-step authentication, etc. Check the time/date stamp on that email. That is when the clock started. If you continue to "play" with your device, you may wind up resetting that timer, so best you just turn it off and set it aside for three days (72 hours minimum). After 72 hours and one minute, you should be able to regain access to your phone. Please note - and this is important - NO FACTORY RESET IS REQUIRED!!!

( DO NOT FACTORY RESET )

It's a complete headache REALLY !!!!!!

So what you have to do is .click on the accessibility tab.then go to vision then the choose your keyboard from Samsung keyboard to Google keyboard. Then tap on the settings icon right next to the Google keyboard. It will take you to another screen. On the top right you will see three tiny dots Tap there. Then choose source license. And after it loads look for (2001) on the wordings and long press on it. After that. Tap again I the search icon on he top right cone of your screen. It will take you to Google account sign in. Do that. Then it will now take you to the Google search. From there you will be able to access your phone .so go to settings then account and log in to your Samsung account. If it doesn't help please let me know

Where is this accessibility tab?

by

As long as you are using android version 5.0 its so easy to bypass the Samsung account if you have an Otg cable. You will download am app called Google redirects and put it on a flash disk. And connect to the otg cable. Once you turn your phone it will automaticaly popup so that you install the app. And by that the Samsung account issue is solved

Ok guys look. I finally found the solution. I don't know will it work for everyone but try. So when you do factory reset you need to choose language and there is accessibility (hope i spelled it right) setting. So go to accessibility settings. Vision-> Text to speech options-> Select Google text to speech press little cog wheel buttong next to Google text to speech option -> Install Voice Data -> 3 little dots in top right corner -> Open Source Licenses and at the top find 2001 link http://hts.sp.nitech.ac.jp/ so double click that and copy link and press little search button in top right corner and it will ask you to use chrome or internet so press Internet and it will take you to that link. Then press 3 little dots in top right corner again -> Settings -> Manage Accounts -> Samsung account. Done! P.S READ THIS!! You can use any samsung account if you want. I created new account and logged in with new account and that's it. Go back and go forward where you need to login to samsung account and use the one you used to login in Internet browser. Good luck ! :)

Which Samsung sync? Side sync?

by

Thanks for this posting. It is really helpful, especially after trying to go through all the Bureaucratic process with Samsung. I owe you a beer.

by

I'm not getting the browser option. Was it Samsung sidesync? Ugh this is so frustrating trying to get beyond this screen. Ugh

by

It's frustrating. Just ensure you have Samsung phone driversystem (Sync) installed on your PC. Then follow the posting above. You may have to unplug and plug your USB cable back and forth in order to see the browser or Play Store pop up.

by

Hi Steve, I'm still getting problem. The software that you guys speak of to download to my PC is it Samsung sidesync or another program? Because with that program I don't get the browser to pop up. I tried googling samsung phone driversystem and I'm still lost. :( Gosh this thing is frustrating me, I miss my phone.

Phone still locked aftet the reset, samsung reactivation lock

Add a comment

I have a "Processing Failed" error on my Note 4 when attempting to log into my Samsung account after the reset. This is because I had the Device Protection Lock enabled and attempted to log in using my Google account (as the instructions stated), not my Samsung account. I have been going through hoop after hoop to get Samsung the required paperwork to get it fixed, so KEEP THE ORIGINAL RECEIPT. Mine didn't have the 4 requirements on it that Samsung wanted, so I have been bouncing between Samsung and Verizon to get paperwork with my name, phone #, original purchase date and IMEI on it. Finally got the paperwork proving the phone in need of repair is, indeed, mine and not stolen, and now I have to wait 72 hours for Samsung to review said paperwork and send me a shipping label so I can send the phone to them to get it flashed so I can again log in. UGH! I never thought attempting to protect the phone from theft would be MY downfall...

It's been a nightmare, and this is THE only way to correct it. Best of luck, I hope it helps. Oh - after never receiving responses via email for Verizon and Samsung, I started messaging both of their support pages on Facebook and got almost instant responses.

GOOD LUCK!!

Your issue was totally different. The challenge is for a user who didn't register the device or signed in to the Samsung Account prior to doing hard reset.

You need to down load to your computer a software name debloater and then down load the ADB files. you can find them at Junky.com.

Instructions

1. make sure you fone is connected to the wifi.

2. turn off your phone

3. put your phone on down load mode. (by pressing power botton + volume down + home key) all at the same time.

4. Connect fone to computer using the usb cable. this will down load the usb drivers.

5. Once the usb drivers have been installed put the fone into the secondary reboot (by pressing power botton + down and up volume + home key) all at the same time.

6. You will be prompt to five options but before you chose the option with the debug mode which is option five you need to run the debloater. After debloater is open then chose the option five or the one that contain the debugging mode in you fone. Next press the home botton.

7. Wait till the fone reboot. the an window asking for permission will appear just ok.

8. Go to the debloater and read the files.

9. filter for setup

10. check mark Samsung setup and wizard setup

11. Apply

12. your fone will reboot again and now you can have a great day.

Hi My name is Evans Wanjau from Nairobi Kenya.

I had a similar problem with a samsung galxy s6. My solution worked 100%, I didnt have a pc and my phone didn't detect an OTG cable. Here's what I did...

1. Once I got the samsung account login there's an option for using the emergency dialer.

2. I clicked on the emergency dialer and called 911 (999 and 112 also worked).

3. While it's still on call the dialer provided call options (loud speaker, bluetooth, hold etc) represented by icons.

4. Now here's what I didn't know, there's another menu once you swipe left (This is samsung s6). On this menu there's messaging, email, web etc.

5. I then clicked on web which then directed me to chrome. Chrome first required me to sign in to the phone's google account to access it.

6. After that was done, I had access to the browser, so far so good. Next I download rootninja's app that enables you to access your phone's settings once you launch it 'samsung bypass google verify apk'. You can get it here

7. Upon downloading it I launched it from chrome and it directly took me to my settings.

8. I went to backup and reset and clicked factory reset, It required me to sign in to my samsung account. Once I clicked delete all, it kept looping me back to sign in.

9. I took a step back and chose the reset settings.

10.The phone restarted as a new phone and didn't ask for my samsung account.

- If this works for you dont forget to thumbs up and follow me on twitter @evans_wanjau
