What is the Factory Reset Protection (FRP) feature?
If a factory reset is performed on Android device without the owner's authorization, the FRP will pop-up with the message, "This device was reset. To continue, sign in with a Google Account that was previously synced on this device."
Therefore, Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is a built-in security feature that was designed by Google for smartphones and tablets running Android 5.1 and later to restrict other people from using your smartphone or tablet if they forcefully perform a factory reset on the device.
Do not worry, ChimeraTool has great procedures for most of the currently released Android versions and models.
Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is automatically activated in every Android device during the Google account setup process. Once FRP is enabled in your Android device, and someone wants to reset the device using Backup & Reset feature in the Settings app, then the system would require the device's security PIN to protect the owner's data and files.
However, if the device wielder decides to forcefully reset the Android mobile device, then FRP lock will sets in with the notification, "This device was reset. To continue, sign in with a Google Account that was previously synced on this device."
More so, if the device wielder is not able to verify Google account using the password, then he or she may not be able to access the smartphone again.
Our solutions for FRP remove are free and unlimited, if you have license for ChimeraTool. Of course there are always models/software versions where we need some time to follow the fixes, but good news is, that in most cases it takes not long time to support new versions :)
