    If this is the factory reset protection (anti-theft measure, couple of years old now) you will want the Google login that you used with the phone before the reset.

    Please don't say you changed that and then reset though...

    More info on Google Factory Reset Protection:

    In the future to remove your email even after resetting and avoid FRP:
    1. Remove any PIN or swipe pattern for the lock screen
    2. Go into Settings - Accounts and remove your account (and any others)
    3. Then factory reset the device.
    After that it shouldn't ask for your email with Factory Reset Protection.
