  7. Hello Etsu, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

    You were asked your email address because your Infinix X557 was part of Google privacy control from Android 5.0 and later.

    To unlock your Infinix x557 from Google, you either enter the email address you used to receive emails and download apps from Play Store.

    In case you forget, you can request for password reset via Gmail website(www.gmail.com). After you have reset your login details, come back to unlock your phone.

    Fast boot is a different thing altogether. Simply remove your device battery. Try again
