Bypass Google FRP After a Factory Reset on Samsung Devices Device is Working Fine vs Device has Already been Reset and FRP Pops Up vs A Different Solution in context to the previous Scenario ... and 1 more

Edited by Kunjay Vyas, Eng, Alma, Maria Quinney and 18 others

FRP stands for "Factory Reset Protection", which is a security method to make sure no one can wipe factory reset a stolen device and use it. "Why is it asking my Google account to set up my device again?" This question is probably what brought you to the VisiHow article. I know this seems to be annoying as to why Samsung would do this. By setting up an FRP on their devices, they have made the sole reason of doing a "Factory Reset" obsolete. Usually, we factory reset a device to get past a locked screen or to sell a device. Now with the Security Updates, you have to remove or bypass the FRP in order to use your device again. Well, this seems to be a question raised very often on the developer's discussions. Since the launch of the latest "Android OS" including "Lollipop" and "Marshmallow", the FRP i.e., Factory Reset Protection has been made a standard on all the devices which have the Android Lollipop (5.1) or above. Not just Samsung but even other manufacturers like LG, Motorola, HTC have the FRP on their devices.
