Hello everyone, hope everyone is doing well. While going through this article online i had few question to ask. I hope to get an answer P.S read the full guide before answering my question.
Method 4: Perform a Factory Reset
As the article states: “due to a new anti-theft feature called Factory Reset Protection, you’ll need to know your Google account password to use this method if the phone was released in 2016 or later.”
Question: How can someone bypass screen lock when we don’t know Google account password? As from a cyber forensics point of view we won’t be knowing Google account password in most of the cases or else the thing would have been something else. You know we need to get physical access to the device.
Method 5: Use ADB to Delete the Password File
As the article states: This next option will only work if you’ve previously [enabled USB debugging] on your phone, and even then, it will only work if you’ve allowed the computer you’re using to [connect via ADB]. But if you meet those requirements, it’s a perfect way to unlock your device. However, note that models with encryption enabled by default may not be compatible with this workaround.
No non-techie user will ever enable Developer Mode in their phone.
Even if Developer Mode is enabled what if USB Debugging is not enabled?
Question: How will we be able to bypass screen lock in such cases?
These are the question which are making me very curious. Hope someone helps.
