In the early versions of the Android operating system, all protective passwords could be reset to the default parameters, which significantly reduced the protection of the mobile device. With the development of the Android platform, the developers managed to create a new protection program that has already appeared on all devices of later assemblies (starting with version 5.1 and above). As a result, this problem was eliminated, and now access to the functionality of the OS is possible only after the user’s personality is confirmed. But this can only be done on condition that the smartphone is tied to the Google Account. And since it is not always possible to recover through your profile, the question arises whether it is possible to circumvent protection and what methods exist for this?
All options for bypassing the new generation “Factory Reset Protection” can be conditionally divided into two categories: official and alternative. It is always advisable to start from the first, since such methods are universal and suitable for all versions of OS Android.The following can be safely attributed to them.
Seller’s entrance to the account
If the device was purchased with hands, it was most likely in operation for some time, and, therefore, Google’s account was tied to it. In this case, you should contact the former owner and find out from him the identification data for the entrance (login and password).
Sometimes the new owner cannot get into the account even after entering current identifiers. This may be due to the fact that the seller has changed the profile password specifically for the buyer, but the information has not yet occurred (usually the procedure is performed within 72 hours). In such a situation, it is advisable to wait a while, and then repeat the attempt again.
Visiting a personal page
You can bypass the “Factory Reset Protection” protection by entering your own profile, which was tied to the phone used. If you can’t get on a personal page because of the password loss, you should try to restore access with another working email or a phone number tied to it.
Do not forget about such an opportunity as a service center. If we contact employees and present a check for the purchase of a mobile device, they will easily restore access to the registered profile when buying.
Sometimes, before the restoration of the factory configuration, it is advisable to disable such a function as “Factory Reset Protection”. This is done in order to avoid problems with access to your own device after its reboot. “FRP” is present mainly in new versions of Android. But on those devices where it is present (starting with 5.1 and above), it will be necessary to perform the following (the sequence of actions and the name of the points may differ depending on the manufacturer and the shell of the operating system).
- Open “Settings”.
- Select the category “Accounts”.
- In the list, find the Google account and go to it.
- Using the corresponding key, delete the account.
- Next, enable the developer mode and go to the corresponding menu.
- Activate the parameter “Unlock provided by the manufacturer”.
From this moment, as soon as the settings are reset, identifiers for entering the Google account will not request the system.
On this, the official methods of unlocking the Google account end. And since they are not available to all users, it is also worth considering alternative options.
How to unlock the phone through the Google account. unofficial ways to bypass
Methods that will be considered below are created on the basis of gaps in the Android operating system and functionality flaws. The effectiveness of each of them depends on the phone model and the current version of the operating system. Therefore, in the case of unsuccessful use of one method, you should proceed to testing the next option.

That’s all. From now on, the password for recovery does not need to be introduced, since it has just been successfully removed. If the device does not support the connection of the flash drive or does not have a slot for installing an SD card, this method will not work. And this means that you can safely proceed to study the following option.

Which will help restore the password
Restoring the Google account is not so simple if the user does not have direct evidence that he is its owner. Such evidence is the presence of a binding to the phone number or additional email. However, the ability to choose a way to restore access facilitates the procedure.
Secondary, but no less important, are:
- Browser. Start Google’s page from the usual browser, even if you do it incognito.
- Geolocation. Use the Internet with which you usually go to Google (home or mobile).
