If you are an Android user, then you must know that Android has introduced many features to enhance the security of your device. Among them, is the FRP lock which stands for Factory Reset Protection.
The FRP lock restricts anyone from factory resetting the device. Only the owner can do it. But what if someone forgets the Google account password or buys a second-hand phone? In this article, we will talk about some tools that will help you bypass FRP lock. We will tell you how to remove FRP on Samsung.
How does FRP work on Samsung smartphones?
As already said, FRP is Factory Reset Protection which works to restrict factory reset of Android devices. This feature is available on Android 5.1 and above. If FRP is activated, no one can factory reset the phone. A factory reset erases all the data, apps, and media files that are on the phone.
Therefore, to do a factory reset on your phone, you need to be signed in to your Google account, the same Google account that was used to set up the phone. If you are going to sell or give the phone to someone, make sure to reset the phone yourself because giving the password is not secure.
