How do I reset a password locked iPhone?

I do not have previous owner’s account information.

The iPhone has a passcode and I’m not able to get to settings. How can a hard reset be done for the iPhone if it’s locked?

    Bypass forgotten password, one way is to use Recovery Mode or DFU mode, then passcode can be cleared. The other way is to reset your phone to factory settings which will also erase all content and settings on iPhone.

    ReiBoot is a famous tool used to enter and exit recovery mode without iTunes, without losing data.

    Reset iPhone is not recommended because it will lost all data including precious ones like contacts, photos, videos, notes, etc.

    Apple added the activation lock for people in your type of situation (except they're stolen.). You need to ask previous owner’s to remove this iphone from their account

    iOS: Forgot passcode or device disabled

    You can skip the passcode by putting the iPhone into recovery mode and resetting it via iTunes

    However, this ONLY works for the passcode. If the iPhone is connected to Find my iPhone there is no way around contacting the previous owner and have them remove it from their account.

    If you go about purchasing a used iPhone you should always make sure it is fully reset to the "Hello" welcome screen.
