What happens when you see this screen that says ‘Verify your account’ in the Setup Wizard? Device Protection is currently active because of an untrusted reset. As a reminder, the Untrusted Resets are through recovery mode, Find My Device, dialer commands, or using a computer to flash a ROM onto your device. So what do you do once you’re here? To get past the screen, just sign in with the Google Account that was synced when you reset your phone. It can be any of the Google Accounts that were on your phone. If you’re not sure which account was on your phone, go to myaccount.google.com and select ‘Find your phone.’ If you see your phone on the list, click it to expand the details and then enter your password when prompted. If you successfully sign-in and verify the details of your phone, you’re good to go and you can enter those same credentials on the Verify your account screen. If you don’t know your Google Account credentials, you can recover them at google.com/accounts/recovery Depending on your recovery options, you’ll be prompted to enter your recovery email or phone number to receive a verification code. It is important to know that there’s a 24-hour waiting period before you can verify your account using that new password. This waiting period is to protect your account data in the event that your phone is lost or stolen. Once you’ve verified your account, you can continue to set up your phone.
