    What is FRP

    In order to improve security, an Android phone is tied to a Google account, which gives extra security to the device in case of theft. This system is called Factory Reset Protection (FRP).

    With FRP the owner can protect his device in advance; for a later activation he will have to enter the registration data of the Google Account linked to the mobile device.

    FRP protection: benefits and damages

    The FRP protection is automatically activated after a hard reset. On the one hand, this is good: An intruder will not gain access to the data. He receives essentially a "brick", useless without access to the Android OS and phone contents.

    On the other hand, an access error can occur when restoring the settings by yourself. What if you cannot remember the data or the device does not want to accept it?

    Thereafter we will explain how to bypass the confirmation of your Google Account.

    Note . There may be differences on different device models (Samsung, Pixel, HTR, Lenovo, etc.) and Android versions when bypassing FRP, but in general these instructions will be helpful if followed step by step.

    How to prevent FRP problems

    The error described above can be prevented by deleting your Google account before resetting.

    This mini-guide is useful if you are selling the device and you would like to perform a hard reset, removing the traces of usage. The buyer will be able to use the phone by connecting his google account during the first Android boot phase.

    Hello ! By disconnecting your google account from your phone, you remove your access to your Gmail, Google Play service, Google Assistant and other applications that are linked to your account.

    In order to perform a Google account reset, you must follow the following sequence:

    6. Set the phone to developer mode. To do this select "OEM unlock"

    After this you will not have any more Google Account errors during the reset procedure.
