Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is a Google security feature that can protect the data on your Android device.
It is connected to a Google account and when you forget the Google account password that you used to set up the device, you may find yourself stuck on the FRP-lock screen unable to set up your device after a factory reset.
This is where tools like SideSync come in, allowing you to easily bypass this FRP lock and finish setting up your device.
In this article, we will talk about SideSync in greater detail to find out if it is a reliable way to bypass the FRP lock screen on Android devices.
SideSync is a PC-Mobile solution that makes it simple to sync screens, windows, and data. It allows you to share your PC's screen and data with your mobile device easily, and receive alarms of your phone through the PC.
Samsung created it to help customers manage Samsung devices, however, some users found out that it could also be used to remove the FRP lock on Samsung devices.
• All Samsung Android phones Galaxy S III and later running Android KitKat 4.4 and beyond.
• All Samsung Android tablets running Android Lollipop 5.0 and beyond.
• The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, as well as later devices, do not support Sidesync. Samsung recommends using Samsung Flow as an alternative.
You can download the official version of SideSync from this link.
SideSync has been known to be effective in bypassing the FRP lock, however, it only works on Samsung devices running Android 6 and lower.
Furthermore, there are no instructions on the official website for using SideSync to unlock FRP.

Step 2: Once SideSync is installed on your computer, turn on your Samsung phone and follow the setup process until you reach the section where it asks for your original Google account.
Step 3: Connect your Samsung device to the Computer via USB cable, you should see a popup window on your device asking if you want to open Galaxy Apps, Chrome, or Internet Browser. Launch one of the browsers.
Step 4: Open this guide's page on your phone and download both the Google Account Manager APK (according to your Android version) and the Account Login APK.
Step 5: Once you download the APK files on your Samsung device, return to the Android setup process, disconnect and re-plug the USB cable to bring up the popup window again, and select "Galaxy Apps" this time.
Step 6: Now go to the Galaxy App Store and download the ES file explorer. Open the app after installation.
Step 7: Find the download folder using the ES file explorer. Tap on the Account Manager and Account Login APKs to install the apps.
Step 8: First, install the Google Account Manager APK. To proceed, you need to enable installation from Unknown Sources. Then install the Account Login APK as well.
Step 9: After installing Account Login APK, you will be redirected to a Google log-in page. Do not sign in here. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner and select "Browser sign-in."
Step 10: This will open the internet browser to the Google sign-in page. Now sign in to the Google account you want.
Step 11: After login, restart your Samsung device.
Step 12: When your device restarts, you can now go through the Android setup wizard since your device now believes the new Google account you just added is the original Google account.
