Factory Reset Protection (FRP)

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.

How does Factory Reset Protection (FRP) work?

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 :)

Dear Guest,

We would like to inform you that as from 25 May 2018, our company acts according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union.

Please note some of our main aspirations to protect our customers’ security and personal data. We have always paid special attention to user data and the way we process them, but let us show you some examples:

We provide the option to delete your profile
You can initiate this on the https://chimeratool.com/#user-settings page.

You can always check where else you are signed in from to the site, and if that is not you, you can sign out that browser. https://chimeratool.com/#user-sessions

As a first line of defense, your data is protected by security systems specialized in preventing hacking attacks, but our other self-developed security solutions and our ever-running monitoring systems enable us to declare with great certainty that we do everything to prevent unauthorized users from acquiring any sensitive data.

In case of a potential unauthorized physical access to any of our servers, the data stored there is useless, as our storage media are protected by sector-level AES encryption.

All passwords we store are unknown to us as well, since only the passwords’ hash values are stored, randomized with “salt”. This minimizes the risk of any leakage of actual user passwords in case of a potential database leak.
