Hello, I had an abnormal factory reset on a Samsung note 8 and now it requires me to log into using an ID that was previously used on the phone.
The phone was used by mum and I but she has no idea on the Samsung ID that was there when she used it.
How can I get to know which Samsung IDs were used on the phone
You may need to contact your Samsung Support Customer Services directly for help @Chrismon

It is a theft protection. If someone were to steal your phone, this will make it impossible for them to access your data or use it again after it's been wiped.
Next., I believe it is not a Smasung account but a Google account what is needed.
There are two ways now.
