I have a Moto G (1st gen) running Kitkat 4.4.4 (not rooted). The first time I signed into my Google account on my device I had 2 step verification enabled. I still do have it enabled. Now in the “forgot password” screen I’m not able to sign in using my id and password.
I haven’t changed my password in a year so I’m positive that I had the same password at that time which I have now. When I tried signing in with an application specific password, it worked out but only when I was connected to the internet.
So the question arises what should I do if I’m offline and by any chance get locked out because of kids messing with the lock screen. And yes when I disabled 2 step verification I was able to sign in with my actual password when connected to the internet but still not able to sign in when offline. Any kind of help would be appreciated.
