"type password to decrypt storage"

so i turned on my lg to to check to the time and i noticed that it just booted with "authentication fail #9 modified" so i just turned it off and on again and it actually started this time but with the message stating "type password to decrypt storage". i have never seen that message so i tried to fix it by putting in every password i have and nothing worked. i never encrypted it in the first place.

I Just Master reset with hardware keys

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the Power and Volume down buttons on the back of the device.

When the LG logo appears, quickly release and then re-hold the Power button while continuing to hold the Volume down button.

But you will lose all your data.
