Factory Reset Protection (FRP) Removal
Factory Reset Protection or FRP is a security feature designed by Google for mobile devices. This is to protect the device from being wiped out by unauthorized users who would want to do a factory reset. FRP is being rolled out by Google starting March 2015 to Android phones with versions starting from 5.0 up. Since then, it has become a default on every Android device produced. Other than Google’s initiative to bolster the security of such phones, manufacturers such as Samsung has come up with its own safety feature for their products as well.
In addition to Google’s verification method to do a factory reset, Samsung users also need to work their way around the reactivation lock. This makes it more difficult for someone not authorized to reset the phone back to its factory settings.
To be able to do a successful factory reset on an FRP enabled device, you will need to log in to the Google account registered with the phone. Unable to do so, you will not be able to reset the device. Sadly, this cannot be done remotely. So, if for example, you purchased a used phone online and the Factory Reset Protection is on, then you may have to ask the seller for the login credentials to be able to do the reset. Otherwise, you need to find a way to bypass Google’s verification system.
Advantages and Disadvantages
The beauty of this feature is that unauthorized persons will not be able to do a factory reset, in case the phone gets lost or stolen. With Google’s FRP, your device is locked for safety until the user is able to get the phone back.
In case the phone was stolen or you have lost the phone, your device data will remain intact. Since this is restricted by FRP, there is no way that they can reset it as they do not have access to the Google account on the phone.
The disadvantage, though, is when you forget what your username and password are for the Google account. Another problem here is if you bought a used phone and the seller was not able to remove the Google account from it. Without the login details, you will have to go through the difficult process of bypassing FRP by yourself, which is tedious.
