Reset to factory settings
- When certain applications no longer function properly or if your Huawei P20 is very slow, you can reset the device to its factory settings. This will reset the telephone to the settings it had when you first turned it on.
- Please note: your Huawei P20 may request a security code, which, if necessary, can be found in the instructions of the Huawei P20. Make sure you have them at hand.
- If you purchased a used device and do not know the code, you should ask the previous owner for it.
