Reset settings on Android. Requires confirmation of Google account I can’t remember what to do?
As you know, since the version of the operating system Android 5.1 (Lollipop) Google has added an additional security feature to the Android OS. The latter, after resetting the smartphone to factory settings, requires to enter the e-mail and password of the previous user’s account in Google. If the owner of the phone for some reason does not know them (for example, the phone was bought from hand), then such a device turns into a useless brick for the new owner. In such a situation, the new owner of the phone begins to look for effective ways to access the settings of the device and remove the annoying lock. In our material, we will break down what to do if you reset your Android settings and the system requires confirmation of a past Google account, detailing the ways to solve the problem.
As we have already mentioned, with the version of the OS Android 5.1 (Lollipop), which saw the light at the end of 2014, Google introduced the so-called “FRP” (Factory Reset Protection) to the Android OS functionality. Now after resetting your phone to factory settings, the system will require an email and password to your former Google account, which was on your device before it was reset.
This way Google has tried to protect your phone from the thieves, who steal phones en masse and reset them to factory settings in order to delete all the previous user data. Then such a “clean” device is sold to a new, unsuspecting owner.
In some cases, the owner of the phone himself resets the phone to the factory settings, but does not remember the data for logging into his Google account, because he registered it a long time ago. In this case he faces the question how to bypass the FRP-protection from Google after the reset.
There are a few different ways to bypass the FRP by Google. They all depend on the brand and model of your phone, the Android OS version and other factors. The method that will work for Samsung phones may be ineffective on Xiaomi, and vice versa. All these methods are published one way or another on the network, where they are studied by Google specialists, and with the next updates they close the existing holes to bypass the FRP. Nevertheless, at the moment there are several effective ways, and we will describe them in detail below.
FRP Lock on Android. what is it
What is FRP Lock, know some owners of smartphones running on Android, version 5.1 and higher. The fact is that in recent years smartphone developers are working hard to develop security mechanisms for gadgets, to protect users from fraudsters, making the theft of the device less attractive for “picks”, by making it impossible to continue to use the phone without knowing the “anti-theft” password.
The mechanism works according to the following principle: after buying a gadget it is immediately “tied” to the owner in the service center, by creating a Google account. Installed FRP Lock protection account by default means that after turning off the phone or resetting it to factory settings intruders won’t be able to use it without login and password.
The FRP Lock function is acknowledged to be an effective way to secure your smartphone, but there are cases when the user himself “suffers” from this kind of protection. Sometimes it happens that after the purchase of the phone with the FRP protection mechanism installed, its owner doesn’t use the password, forgets it when buying the device from hand, and when the need arises to enter the anti-theft code, he can’t unlock the smartphone even by entering the correct combinations, due to some software failure. Further in the article we will describe the account verification bypassing mechanisms in detail.
Forgot your Google account username and password on your Samsung Galaxy
To be honest, the situation is almost hopeless. But do not despair. there are still some ways to unlock the device. Here they are:
- Recall. We agree, it sounds like mockery, but we are by no means pursuing that goal. In fact. go to the page to restore access to your Google account (here’s the link) and try different options. For example, enter your login and the system will help you to restore the password. Try it. it will not get any worse!
- Completely reflash your smartphone (unfortunately, does not work for all models). It will be hard without certain skills, but there’s nothing left to lose. Download Odin, download the software, put the phone into flash mode (instructions for Galaxy S9) and proceed. Be careful. all actions are entirely at your own risk. If you flash incorrectly, there is a high probability to “destroy” the device and you will lose the official warranty. Keep this in mind!
- Service center. If you’ve forgotten everything you can at all, then the last option remains. go to a service center. The only point, you will need documents to unlock it (purchase receipt, filled warranty card, credit agreement). In general, you will have to prove that this smartphone belongs to you, you honestly spent your money on it, and now you can’t use it because of some stupid lock.
Sadly, there is no other way to lock the Galaxy. This is how two very big companies (Samsung and Google) take care of our security.
Good or bad? I guess so, but only as long as it doesn’t affect you personally.
Unfortunately, everyone can forget their password. no one is safe from that 🙁

Reset FRP (bypassing Google Account) on Samsung A51 (SM-A515F) Android 10 with firmware A515FXXU3BTF4
On this firmware version there are at least two relatively easy ways to bypass the account:
The essence of the method consists in causing an error of Gmail application.
Now you can run any application. browser, my files, etc.
Download the application FRP ADD ROM through the browser or burn it to a MicroSD flash drive in advance, run it, disable Google apps, Google play services and Google play itself. Give admin rights to the application FRP ADD ROM.
Method N2. the essence is the same as in the first, through the curtain that can be dropped during the black screen before the button “Home”
The regularity of the appearance of this possibility has not been revealed, I had it once in a while
The story of one murder. Samsung fold 2 xD
Hello again)In the old new wave, as soon as the Korean corporation introduced an affordable leasing feature for small appliances, premium devices started popping up on avits at a very low price. When it was 200k at the office, it was only 80k at oshot’s site.
But the customers were not too happy about it for a long time. 1 month. Then the phone demanded to top up the monthly payment for credit, and if you do not do this, then the phone will be blocked.
I didn’t really like the phone. Too narrow and thick
Here is for example in comparison with the 11 apple:
Fuck it)Back to the story.The phone was bought deliberately in this condition and the owner decided that by analogy with the Samsung s20 will unlock from the lease, by pouring a modified modem with a change of serial number and IMEI phone and looked for a performer through the Vietnamese computer genius, who for 100 dollars will do it.The only thing I had to do was to disassemble it, read it out, write it down and assemble it.I initially thought the idea did not seem very true, but after negotiating the terms, agreed.So. If it doesn’t work, I’m not involved) I’m disassembling:
All as usual, though it was a bit scary, because the caps at the time were not on sale. No. And if damaged, I got to replace the cover is already at the offices, which covers only my price tag for the work. Disassembled as usual. Successfully. I forge out the board:
So here’s the gist of the repair: Take the flash drive off, read it and write to it. That’s it.Since the thermal conductivity of the board still do not know, the protective shield simply cut with an angle grinder cutter from a manicure machine)
At the time isp connection through the wiring was not. The Internet was silent.I had to do as usual all by myself) unsoldering flash:
I stripped the samsung compound and started to call the ufs3 pinouts on the board, by analogy with the ufs 2.1.Of course it didn’t add up, but in the end it did:
This is ready isp pinout fold 2.But since at that time through the usual strip was no outputs to connect, I had to finalize his:
I spent a week with the connection to the flash drive, but nothing happened.Once I managed to read it and after that the flash drive stopped working.There are many factors: the same length of twisted pair rx tx, the distance to the programmer’s processor, etc.д.Called the customer, outlined the situation, that a new pad would be needed, which only came out recently, and to wait a month or two until I formed my own orders.After thinking about it, I told him I would buy it myself. After 2 weeks I get the correct pinout from him and I move on. I connected directly to the chip, but the flash drive still wouldn’t read. I wired up what I needed on the board, soldered the flash, and tried to start it up. When I connect it to PC it goes into standby mode, which means there is no boot loader.I connect with wires to the board, but alas, no connection was made.Chip died for unknown reasons) And then I decided to find out why the fuck is the flash died for nothing?In one of the chats, I still decided to ask.Turns out I’m not the only one who fell for it. Many people have had their flash drive die from trivial soldering and it was connected with the programmer. In the end we need another one) And since the new models chip is still firmly attached to the processor, its replacement to date is not possible and the most feasible option. Replacement of the entire motherboard.That’s just how I buried the Fold. I offered the customer iFold instead, but he refused such an expensive gift)
