Normally, restoring the factory phone is the way out of many problems that mobile phones can present. Many times, it is the only thing we can do, however it is necessary for everyone to know that it is important that the mobile asks you for the Google account after restarting or formatting it.
We have to keep in mind that these steps are absolutely necessary and pre-written by the manufacturers of all phone brands. This was implemented as a security resource so that the phones can avoid being saved after being stolen.
That is why it is important that we all know this information, after doing a hard-reset so that the phone turns on normally again, it will ask you for the Google account with which you were previously affiliated.
What to do if the mobile asks for the Google account after formatting it?
More often than not, if we own the phone, we have some idea of what the property was. Google account that was affiliated. However, you have been able to forget the password either due to lack of memory or that we do not remember the password.
- If we do not remember the password we can access our email from a laptop and click on where it says ‘Forget the password’. So that it allows us to recover and access this moment from our phone without any problem.
- In case we buy the second-hand phone, and we do not have the Google account, we can ask its former owner.
If it is a Google Gmail account, it is very easy to recover it. You can do it with recovery mail that you have affiliated with your current email or with the phone number only receiving a code where you must confirm and that’s it! recovered account.
I always look for the Google accounts associated with my phone are Gmail because first it is from Google itself and because its recovery system is much easier than any other. In addition, you will find everything that has to do with security settings, settings in a menu that is easy to use.
Also what you can do is take it to a technician and do the recovery by IMEI. Likewise, the IMEI is the demonstration of our property rights.
All phones have an IMEI that is like the identification number of the phone, when you buy it they register it in your name. In such a way that if an unfortunate event happens to you, your mobile is stolen you can check your right of ownership.
Even if you bought your mobile from a telephone company, it is easier, just take it with its box, they will verify that it is in your name and you will recover it easily!
Way to do a Hard – Reset on the phone format:
Now if we are clearer on this matter, if your problem is that you do not know how to do a Hard Reset or restore your phone to the factory, what you should do is the following:
- In most phones regardless of the brand you can try pressing 2 buttons at the same time, the volume up button + the power button + the middle button.
- You can also go to settings the part that says ‘Factory data reset’
They are very simple procedures to perform and it will not be complicated for you to do it. Now, it is necessary that you also remember the importance of making a backup, so that in this way you can back up all your old data. But, it will still ask you to enter Google account after formatting.
Therefore, make sure to place your contacts, images or files that you need in the cloud. The phones have an option that makes it easy for you to make a backup where this data will be saved automatically and will make your life easier!
A trick that I recommend is connect the PC to your phone. In this way you access the phone files so that you can copy and save them on your PC; while you factory reset it. To then repeat the same process again and re-insert the files to your phone.
