Description: The article is about samsung login. The author shows us disable bypass reactivation lock on any Samsung Galaxy phone and he is trying to find an available way to unlock the phone when the phone is locked. The way he finds finally been proved available.
Starting in 2014,Samsung introduced a new feature to its smartphones called reactivation lock. If you haven’t heard of that or know what it is,it functions like an iCloud lock for Apple devices. If you have a Samsung Account on the phone or the tablet and you do a factory reset to the device without first removing the Samsung Account when the phone reboots after the reset,it will completely locked to that person’s account that was last on the phone or the tablet when you reset it.
You have to enter that person’s account information in order to proceed and use the phone. It’s a security device to prevent people who steal phones and then reset them and try to resell them. I’ve been contacted by several clients myself for helping with getting that removed from phone that they bought from a seller who turned out to be dishonest who sold them a phone that was locked to someone else’s account and they didn’t tell them or for a couple clients who forgot their screen lock and had to reset the phone but then they also had forgotten their Samsung Account information so they were unable to get back in. Because I have a way to bypass that so I am going to show you that.
Here I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This one happens to be from t-mobile specifically that I have purposely done the reset to. This is the screen that pops up during the setup process when a phone is subject to the reactivation lock. It says the device is locked because of an abnormal reset and you have to enter the information for the last account that was on the phone in order to proceed.
It works like iCloud in that if I try to enter my own information there and sign it with my own Samsung account I will get an error same process and failed. That tells you that’s not the original account that was on the phone you need to sign in with a real one. If you look around on the internet,there are a couple different places that you’ll find articles that claim there are bypassed tricks available. But from my experience those don’t work anymore. Samsung has closed the loopholes on that.
For example one of them claims that if you on that sign-in screen you can go to the forgot password link and use a trick to get it bypassed there. As I’m going to try on the phone here that loophole seems to have been closed by Samsung. We’ll try it here to pull it up and see what happens.
One of the methods claims that when you try to reset the password you can press and hold on your email address here on this screen to get the text copied and then do something with it that lets you bypass it there. But when I am pressing and holding everything else here does nothing. So that’s not a viable solution.
Another methods claims that on the first screen that pops up when you’re going through the setup process,you can tap on the accessibility settings and get to something through there. That specifically involves the text-to-speech options in the accessibility menu,claiming that you can tap on this install voice data. But Samsung’s also block that because now when we tap on it nothing happens. So that’s not a viable option either. But let me try my method here and we’ll see what happens.
If you don’t want to wait so now that I’ve got the phone all set up to go. We are back at the Samsung lock screen and I will see if it lets me sign in with my own Samsung Account information. This is my own work email address that I use and that one was trying to sign in. So now we’ll see what happens when I tap sign in. I’m signed into my account now. It did not give me that error screen.
I can hit next. I can hit finish. We are at the home screen.This phone is now fully usable. So that block has been bypassed. I’ve been able to get into the phone with my own information and I can now use the phone any way that I want. This would apply to not only the note 4 but any recent Samsung device that has the reactivation lock feature added to it.
