My lg3 encrypted itself this morning and is asking PIN/password

Customer Question

My lg3 encrypted itself this morning and is asking for a PIN/password ***** attempts. If left alone steadily clicks. Is there any remedy for this? There was no prior lock enabled other than the swipe lock screen.

Hi there,
If the LG3 is asking for a PIN/password ***** you do not know it, then the only remedy is to reset the phone to its original factory settings.
To hard reset the phone:
1. Turn the power off.
2. Press and hold Power + Volume Down keys on phone.
3. Release the Power button only when the LG logo is displayed, then press and hold it again.
4. Release all buttons when the Factory Hard Reset screen is displayed.
5. Press the Power button to continue.
6. Press the Power button again to confirm the reset.
Let me know if that is successful for you...
