Huawei Technologies has been in the news for the last month because of the U.S. ban that many people believe directly targets the company, but that hasn't stopped hundreds of millions of users from buying their smartphone like P30 Pro all over the world. Their smartphones come integrated with security features for authentication, one of them being lock-screen passwords. This article looks at the different types of password that Huawei has implemented in its devices, and the many ways in which you can regain access if you ever forgot the passcode, PIN or pattern.
First, let's look at the different password types used in Huawei smartphones and tablets. EMUI 9.1 is the latest version of Huawei's operating system, and it is based on Android 9.0 Pie. It offers a variety of authentication types such as passcode, custom pattern, 4-digit PIN and 6-digit PIN. In addition, premium devices running EMUI 9.1 have biometric authentication features like face recognition and fingerprint scanning.
What's more, Factory Reset Protection (FRP) feature from Google prevents others users from setting the phone without correct Google account password so the device won't follow in wrong hands in order to protect the data. . All of these security features can be bypassed, fortunately. This article shows you how to bypass Google FRP lock or use a third-party utility to unlock Huawei smartphone in case you've forgotten the security authentication.
If you signed in Google account on this phone, then Google FRP (Factory Reset Protection) will be activated automatically, which prevents other users from using the device after factory reset. You have to to enter Google credentials to perform a factory reset, which removes the password from the phone. However, if you forgot the password, there are ways to bypass it and regain access to your device. For this, you will need to download the Test DPC app as an APK file and install it on your phone. Here's how to do that:
Step 1: In the screen where you are required to enter your Google credentials (email ID), type any random word and long-press to select it.
Step 2: In the menu options that pop up, tap on More and then on Assist. This will cause the Google app to automatically launch. In the search bar, type the word "chrome" and tap on Chrome Application when you see it.

Step 4: In the app, select "Setup Regulated Profile" and follow the prompt to complete the process.
Step 5: Now, go to Settings and turn on Developer Mode on the phone. Go to Developer optiosn and enable "OEM Unlock" to bypass Google FRP.
