It worked but there is a padlock icon on the top left corner making it difficult for me to continue. When I use the emergency information format to install quickshortcut maker, the moment I click on add contact there is a pop up that says permission denied.
I have forgotten my email password I used for that phone.

How can I solve this issue to use the phone?
