Resetting- will it wipe screen lock

Hi Dude777,


To answer your question, yes definitely doing a factory data reset/external reset will wipe everything on your phone and that includes the security lock screen. But please be careful on this to make sure you won't trigger Google Protection. Thanks.


Best regards,
