Deleting a Google account on LG Stylo 3 can be easy, if the account is deleted prior to resetting the phone, but can become a complete nightmare if the Google account is not removed prior to factory resetting the LG device. For this blog post we want to concentrate in helping those individuals who didn't delete a Google Account and as a result are currently stuck with a Google Activation Lock or factory reset protection (FRP lock). Our goal is to prepare you with the safest method to delete/remove a Google Activation Lock and resources so that it doesn't happen to you in the future.
I'll leave a table of context so feel free to skip ahead if you wish.
***Rule of thumb: don't assume a phone in factory settings means it's ready to be used. Insert your sim card and go through the setup steps. Make a call, go online, send a written and picture text, and watch a video.***
Trust me this can save you a headache and money.
According to AndroidCentral a Google Activation Lock, also known as factory reset protection or FRP for short, is a security feature that was implemented to Android devices during the Android Lollipop software update. The Lollipop Android update implemented the FRP security feature that made it difficult for a stolen or lost phone to be completely wiped or factory reset, deter thieves, and protect the users information.
As another rule of thumb, remember to delete all Google Accounts from your LG Stylo 3 before resetting it (this rule can apply to any phone). We decided to add this section only for LG Stylo 3 because LG devices have an extra security feature that is activated if you don't delete the Google Account before factory resetting it through settings.
We get a large number of customers coming to our repair shop asking us to delete/remove a Google Activation Lock. The top two reasons LG phones customers are more likely to come for FRP removal due to improper resetting the phone or purchasing Google account lock phone.

Don't assume the device is ready to be used just because it's already in factory settings. If the device has already been factory reset, make sure the phone doesn't have a Google Activation Lock by inserting your sim car and going through the set up steps and you get to the home page.
Take this opportunity to test the device. Make sure the phone can make a call, go online, send a text and picture, watch a video. We go into further detail in another blog post if you're interested. Buying Used Phones
