How to: Bypass Android Factory Reset Protection

androidWith the release of new android i.e. Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has introduced a new security feature with it. Now when ever you factory reset your phone with recovery and after reset boot your phone, then the device will ask you to verify your previous Google Account. If you don’t remember it then you can’t have access to the device.

The main aim for introducing this security feature is to prevent selling of stolen device. But there’s a trick to bypass this security feature.

Steps to Bypass Android Factory Reset Protection

This guide is reported to be working only on the Samsung Devices. If you found it working on other device then inform us.
  1. After you have done Factory Reset, turn on the phone.
  2. Now when it say to verify your Google Account, connect your phone to computer using OTG cable.
  3. Now when you connect the cable, the device “File Manager” will automatically open up.
  4. Now download and copy the apk and move to your device using computer. Download the apk required for this process from here.
  5. Navigate to the location where the apk is saved on your  device and open it.
  6. Now it will prompt to go to Settings and Enable Unknowns Source. Do it.
  7. Now install the apk and open it.
  8. This application will take you to setting.
  9. Now scroll down to “Backup And Reset”.
  10. Click on “Factory Reset>Reset>Rest All”
  11. The device will reboot, but this time it won’t ask to verify the Google Account.
  12. That’s it. Now you have  Bypass Android Factory Reset Protection.

The reason why it doesn’t ask for verification on after doing factory reset from device setting is that, when your do the factory reset for second time, there’s no Google Account logged in. If you found this method working on any other device, then let us know about it using the comment section. 🙂
