    Welcome to Android Central! It's always advisable to remove your Google account in Settings>Accounts right before doing the factory reset on most phones, because this will prevent Factory Reset Protection from activating. This is especially important if you're resetting the phone in order to sell it to someone else. If you don't remove your account before the reset and the buyer waits until later to set it up, they'll find that the phone is asking for your Google account and password, since it was considered an "unauthorized" reset.

    Removing the screen lock isn't necessary, because that will be wiped with the factory reset.
