    Welcome to Android Central! Did you recently change your password within the last 72 hours? If so, you have to wait 72 hours before you can log back into the phone.

    Also, if you have 2-step authentication turned on, try turning it off temporarily.

    This is what I was talking about: https://www.google.com/landing/2step/. But if you don't know what I mean, then you most likely didn't turn it on.

    Are you absolutely certain you're entering the information correctly? Is it possible Caps Lock is turned on?

    Sorry, but I'm not sure if you have any other options that don't include wiping the data from the phone. I looked for a firmware repair option from Sony, but that wipes the data: How do I perform a software update or a software repair on my smartphone or tablet? – Sony Xperia™ Z3 Compact support (English)
