One of the more common issues with Samsung phones, is users encountering an FRP lock. This lock will usually appear after a user attempts to perform a factory reset on their device. Once you are presented with this lock, it may seem as if there are no immediate solution to get around it. Let’s talk about what an FRP lock is, and how to bypass it.
FRP lock stand for Factory Reset Protection. This is a security measure put in place that is designed to prevent a thief from conducting a factory reset of a stolen phone. This is usually done in an attempt to reset a phone with a lock screen password. This will trigger the FRP lock, which will essentially disable the phone entirely. Once the lock is in place, you will not be able to boot into the phone’s operating system at all.
The FRP lock message will read: “This device was reset. To continue, sign in with a Google Account that was previously synced on this device.”
