Nowadays Android has introduced security measures to protect the data of the user. However, these security measures can sometimes become an annoyance for the user. One such security measure is the FRP or Google Account lock on Android.

If you just purchased a pre-owned smartphone and get locked out of the Google account lock, you might want to know how to bypass it. So, let's see what is the Google account lock exactly and how to get around it.

What is Google Account Lock?

Android is now offering Google account lock (people also call is as Factory Reset Protection) to the owners of Android smartphones and tablets after updating the 5.1 version.

What exactly is it? To understand its functioning, we first need to understand the basics of factory reset.

Factory reset is when you restore your smartphone to its original state, meaning the default settings it was configured to when it came out from the factory.

A Factory Reset will delete all the data files, including images, documents, videos, saved passwords, and installed apps. Your device didn't have photos, documents, or videos originally and only had pre-installed apps.

Factory Reset Protection helps the user by preventing them from accidentally factory resetting their Android devices. Because to initiate a Factory Reset, now you would need to enter your Google account credentials.

Additionally, it deters thieves from deleting your data and information by using the factory reset option. So, if your device gets lost or stolen, the Google Account lock will safeguard all your data and files.
