PIN Required when you Restart Device Huawei?

“PIN required after phone restarts” is designed by the operating system to make sure your phone’s security. Therefore, every time when you restart your Huawei phone, you need to enter a PIN password to verify your identity. If you forgot the PIN, you need to use the methods above to enter the Huawei home screen.

And, after a factory reset, you may need to enter the Google account and password. Because the factory reset protection is enabled but has not been disabled before the factory reset. Then, you need to bypass the FRP lock on your Huawei phone.
