Factory Reset Protection is a security method by which you can protect your smartphone and its data from unauthorized access in case of loss or theft. When this feature is enabled on your Android or iPhone device, factory resetting cannot be done without your permission.
How does it work?
The Factory Reset Protection feature is enabled automatically when a Google account is added to the phone, and a lock-screen password is set. So, after this feature is enabled, if anyone tries to reset your device using factory settings, the FRP will be triggered, and a display on the device screen will appear saying “Verify your account.” So here, there will be Google account verification after reset, and if the incorrect details are entered, the device will not unlock.
Why disable it?
As discussed above, FRP is a security method enabled on your device, but the need for disabling the feature arises in several situations. The most common ones are as follows.
1. Selling or gifting a phone
If you are planning to sell or give your phone to someone, you need to disable the Factory Reset Protection. If the new owner tries to factory reset the device, he is not asked for Google verification and has trouble accessing the phone.
