Support Lg G3 Mcafee lock screen

I bought a lg g3 awhile back off of Craigslist. I switched carriers and did a reset on the phone so I could sell it. Everything went good but once it reset and started back up the mcafee lock screen pops up and I do not know the pass code. I contacted the guy who sold it to me and he said he did a factory reset before he sold it to me and I never did that. Anything I could do

The phone is no longer active because I switched from AT&T to Verizon . Basically I have a phone that will not work because I do not have a pin. The previous owner said he never had that screen pop up when he factory reset.

It is a good phone and I would hate to throw it away.

Hmm, not sure.
Maybe try booting into the stock recovery and reset from there?

You could try this,But its a lot to do.Reflash the stock firmware if you can get into download mode:

And use the AT&T variant if its an AT&T phone,And be sure to remove the sim/sd card before flashing as it will wipe them clear.Then after your done flashing,Then you can put the sim/sd card back in.
