Most Android devices that run the KitKat OS (4.4) can be easily compromised by a simple factory reset.
It erases all data including passwords and PINs, which is supposed to protect the phone from intruders if stolen or lost.
Google's solution to this was to integrate Google verification or Factory Reset Protection. This acts as a security feature for lost Android devices.
It will lock out your device unless you successfully log in to your Google account. But what if you forgot your account details?
Is there a way to bypass this Google verification after you factory reset your device? Read on to learn more.
Google Verification, also named Factory Reset Protection (FRP), is a built-in security feature for Android devices.
It was first integrated into the Android OS version 5.0 (Lollipop) and is still available on all Android devices today. FRP is automatically enabled once you set up your Google account on your Android device.
As an anti-theft feature, it prevents anyone from bypassing the Google login page after a factory reset.
It ensures that even though any security measures are erased, the user still has to log in with the right Google account details to make the phone usable.
Doing a factory reset on your Android device is now more complicated with the addition of the Google verification feature.
You might feel hopeless if you cannot remember your Google account's login credentials after several login attempts.

If you forgot your email, you need to enter the full name and mobile number registered to your account. A verification code will be sent to your mobile number.
If you forgot your password, you can either:
Once you have the verification code, use it to create a new password for your email. You can now log in to your Google account.
