Performing a factory reset on any Android device reverts all of its settings and preferences to the factory defaults and also clears any and all user data stored on the internal storage of the device. After going through a factory data reset, an Android device slips back into the condition it was in, software-wise, when it was first taken out of the box. Most Android devices can be factory reset either by using their Operating System’s Settings menu or the Android System Recovery menu that can be accessed through a combination of the device’s hardware buttons. Unfortunately, the LG 450 is one of the few Android devices that can only be factory reset through the Settings menu found within its User Interface.
The LG 450’s manufacturers have not yet released a method that can be used to factory reset the device through the Android System Recovery menu, so for now users will have to settle for a soft reset from the device’s User Interface. Factory resetting an LG 450 will clear all user data stored on the device’s internal storage, so if they have any valuable data stored on there it is advised that the user back it up before they attempt to reset the device to factory settings. The following are all of the steps a person needs to complete in order to factory reset an LF 450:
- Go to Settings.
- Scroll down and navigate and tap on Phone settings.
- Scroll down and tap on Reset settings.
- Tap on Master reset out of the options that can be seen on the screen.
- On the next screen, tap on Yes to confirm the action.
- When prompted by the device for a security code, enter the security code for the device or, if no security code is active but the prompt still persists, enter 0000 – the default security code for the LG 450.
