Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is a security feature that protects the data on your Samsun A20s from unauthorized access.
As the name suggests, once this feature has been enabled, you will be unable to factory reset the device without first providing the Google account password.
While this is a good way to protect the device from unauthorized access, it can also lock you out of your device if you forget your Google account password.
If this is the situation you find yourself in, the solutions below should help.
There are various methods available on the internet that claim to bypass FRP, but the most of them are not safe and are extremely difficult to use. Sometimes you might get stuck in the middle of the unlocking process.
Thus, we recommend Unlockit for Android in this case. It is one of the best and safest ways to bypass FRP lock in any Samsung device including the A20s.
It is a desktop Samsung FRP unlocking solution that allows to add a new Google account on your device after the FRP bypass.
Furthermore, it supports most Samsung devices and is fully compatible with all versions of Android OS from Android 6 to 12.
We also recommend it here because it is very easy to use, allowing you to quickly unlock the device with just single click.
