When Bypassing Google Lock is Needed?

I’ve shown you the how; now let’s take a look at the when. Here are some possible scenarios when you will need to bypass Google lock on your Samsung device.

1. Selling a Samsung device, but forgot the password

You can’t and shouldn’t sell your current Samsung device without removing your Google account. If you intend to sell but forgot the password to your Google account, then the bypassing operation will be needed.

2. Bought a pre-owned locked Samsung device

If you have unfortunately sold a locked Samsung device from a merchant or seller, then bypassing it yourself may save you a lot of hassle.

3. Running a phone buyback and re-selling business

If you are in the buyback and pre-owned phone-selling business, you will encounter various problems with the phones you acquire. And the Google FRP problem is definitely one of the most common ones. The ability to bypass FRP yourself should be one of the knowledge you should know.

Bonus: Prevention

Last but not least, if you want to avoid being locked-out entirely, it is recommended that you remove the Google account first before performing a factory reset. And to do that:

Go to “Settings” > “Accounts and Backup”
Tap “Manage Accounts”, then select your Google account
Select “Remove Account”, then confirm it.
When prompted, verify your identity and get rid of the Samsung FRP lock.
