With 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
- After you have done Factory Reset, turn on the phone.
- Now when it say to verify your Google Account, connect your phone to computer using OTG cable.
- Now when you connect the cable, the device “File Manager” will automatically open up.
- Now download and copy the apk and move to your device using computer. Download the apk required for this process from here.
- Navigate to the location where the apk is saved on your device and open it.
- Now it will prompt to go to Settings and Enable Unknowns Source. Do it.
- Now install the apk and open it.
- This application will take you to setting.
- Now scroll down to “Backup And Reset”.
- Click on “Factory Reset>Reset>Rest All”
- The device will reboot, but this time it won’t ask to verify the Google Account.
- 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. 🙂

I have a fake chinese phone called smart +, this fake stuff has less options so it sucks with other smart phones I try to bypass a google account coz they got lots of options as search, language input and so on . I need a help

can anyone help?…
How do I navigate to the a apk file since I cannot access the device until I have verified the account?
Actually for the devices in which it works, a popup opens allowing you to open the files without unlucky the phone.
If the popup doesn’t open on your phone, then it will not work for you.

yours procedures works fine..
How do i navigate to the apk file on device when i cant bypass the security screen :/ ??
That is my question as well!
Basically, when you connect an OTG drive, the popup should allow you to explore the files directly. You tap on it and you’re into the file system.
yeah on the computer, what about after you copy the file to the phone. how do you navigate to the file on the phone?
The file manager should pop up on the phone when you connect the OTG.
But for me file manager doesnt pop up on my Lenove Vibe P1….what can i do?

That will open device menu.Press on continue,slide menu down to open the blue being logo.Click on it,will open another page the click on it again will open remove guest and owner.Now click owner then settings logo there go to backup and reset.Reset the device.After the reset,click next till you get to enter pin,click on that and enter 1234 then next.Wahla,you are done.
No it doesn’t work. When i press back button it goes back to the page “testing”
Now when it say to verify your Google Account, connect your phone to computer using OTG cable.
