how do I reset a google acct if the info is unknown. I was given a Samsung G7 phone. but I don't know the google email or password. Im wanting to reset it & add my google information to it.

  • What do you mean by "reset" here? Do you mean to remove that account from the device? If not, then resetting an unknown account's credentials is something we don't support (because the account can be misused later) and neither it is on-topic here (Android independent). – Firelord Nov 15 '18 at 9:43
  • There's an anonymous suggested edit that conflicts with the original revision: The OP was given a Samung G7, and the editor claimed they lost it. – Andrew T. Nov 25 '18 at 7:12
