Five months after Apple released Activation Lock in 2014, a report by the office of the New York State Attorney General  revealed that theft cases involving Apple devices had reduced by 17 percent.
As competitors, I guess Google (Android) had to respond, which led to the introduction of Factory Reset Protection (FRP) lock in the same year.
Back then, Android devices were pretty easy to factory reset. If you forgot your password, you could just press the vol up/down and the power button and perform a factory reset.
However, that also meant thieves could steal your phone, wipe it clean without any struggle and resell it within hours.
FRP lock was meant to reduce theft cases of android devices, but it can also lock you out of your device.
If you can’t access your device because of the FRP lock, you’re lucky because this article will help you understand what it is and how you can bypass it.
Part 1. What is FRP Lock?
Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is a security feature developed to prevent anyone from using your device even if it has been reset to factory settings. FRP is a built-in feature and is only available for phones running on Android 5.1 lollipop or later.
FRP is automatically enabled when you sign in to your Google account. When someone forcefully performs a factory reset on your device, FRP lock is triggered, and the device is locked until they sign in again using the previous Google account.
In a nutshell,
- FRP is only available for Android 5.1 or later
- FRP keeps your phone’s data from unauthorized access.
- If enabled, signing in to the Google account that was previously synced on the device is a must, even after the device has been erased (factory reset)
- Signing in to a Google account on your phone automatically enables the Google FRP.
