With the release of new android i.e. Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has introduced a new security feature with it. Now when ever you factory reset your phone with recovery and after reset boot your phone, then the device will ask you to verify your previous Google Account. If you don’t remember it then you can’t have access to the device.
The main aim for introducing this security feature is to prevent selling of stolen device. But there’s a trick to bypass this security feature.
