Tools to bypass Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on Android devices




One of the new security feature Google added to android 5.1 Lollipop and above was Factory Reset Protection (FRP) aka Google account lock which is just like the icloud on apple devices. This feature is triggered when you reset the device from recovery menu when there was already a gmail account on the phone. Though it’s a nice feature, sometimes people do forget the username or password of their account so after factory reset from recovery menu, they can’t login and use their phone again.
Unlocking FRP on some devices using online servers might cost up to $16. This price is really cheap when compared to icloud unlock. Normally online server unlock are usually the last thing to do when all other bypass method has failed.
Google usually create new security patches so the tools used in bypassing FRP are also changing. What you used in bypassing a lets say a phone called J7 with July 2016 security patch might not work on same J7 with September 2016 security patch.
