Android Central Question

Hi, I recently was going through my siblings things that he left behind after their passing, I've come accessed a old phone which it looks like they either tried to it did half well you get the point. Only to leave a mess of a phone, my niece would like the phone so I was trying to see if I could get it up and running for her.

The phone is a LG Rebel LTE (CDMA) TracFone Smartphone (L44VL) | LG USA. I turn it on it takes me to the screen to sign in to all available WI-FI so I sign in to mine go to next it goes three three different steps and pops up with the Google screen Saying "verify your account" device was device was reset sign in with account previously sycned, then it also gives me an option to Setup work Device.

Now I've tried all email and passwords that my niece knows and none of them work at all.

How can I get passed this screen, I can't download anything to it, no way to put it on device, is there a manual step by step detailed instruction area i can go to that well help me.

Please help a stressed out Aunt

Welcome to Android Central! Our condolences for your brother's passing.

I'm afraid you won't be able to do much with the phone, because that's Google's Factory Reset Protection, which requires the user to enter the correct account information. Doing a hardware key factory reset won't bypass this, and we don't allow discussions on how to hack a phone to bypass security. Sorry!
