Samsung and Google are now serious about your security and privacy, they are now taking the right measures to protect your personal data. Most of us are happy with the security but at the same time, you’ll get annoyed when you’re locked out of your device and unable to get access to it due to FRP lock.
With the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google introduced Factory Reset Protection to protect your device and personal data. So for example, if you lost your device or someone wipes data factory reset it without your permissions and you’ve enabled factory reset protection then Google will ask for account credentials that were used to set up i.e Your Google account and password or Samsung account.
Samsung’s old devices such as the Galaxy S3, S4, Note 3 and so on were not having this feature but the newly released devices such as Galaxy J5, J7, Note 5, S6 Edge, S7 Edge are having it and if you hard reset your phone using recovery, you’re certain to get your phone locked unless you provide the right Google account verification, it had before. In most cases, users forget their email or password and are stuck at the Google verification screen. But you don’t to have worry as I have got you covered.
Follow the steps to bypass Google account verification.
