Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ThanksWhat your seeing is the Factory Reset Protection implementation on the phone which all Android phones having Android version 5 and later has.You need to wait 72 hours from the time you reset your password.Once you have waited this out, you can then sign in and it will accept this new password.They do this so thieves who steal your phone cannot access it so easily.You can read more about this here, but the main point is there is nothing you can do to get around this, you need to wait the 72 hours out.If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.And please take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit.Thank you
