How to Bypass Google Account on a Xiaomi Phone

Android, Xiaomi

Bypass Google Account Xiaomi

This guide will show you how to bypass Google account on a Xiaomi phone. You may need to do this if you forget the password on your Google account and had reset the device using recovery mode. You don’t need a computer to accomplish this. Doing this process may or may not work depending on the model and/or software version running in your Xiaomi phone.

At the time when I wrote this guide and filmed the how-to video (that supplements this guide), it worked for me using a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S running the latest MIUI 10.3.2.
