It is so annoying when we change the passcode to our Samsung A02 as a security measure and then forget it soon after. We wonder why we changed it in the first place. But it is a fact of life today. Passwords to our phones must be rotated frequently and periodically as one of the measures we take to stay one step ahead of scammers and hackers all the time. But what to do now that we forgot the Google account credentials to our Samsung A02? Here's what you can do.

Part I: Samsung A02 vs. Samsung A02s

Samsung A02s came out in November 2020, and Samsung A02 in January 2021. Both are budget smartphones, pitched to users who do not demand a lot from their phones but want a decent feature set with modern security protocols to keep their Android experience safe and secure.

The highlight differences between A02s and A02 are:

  • A02s features a USB-C port, whereas A02 does not.
  • A02s is powered by Snapdragon 450, delivering better performance than the A02 powered by Mediatek MT6739W chipset.
  • A02s features 3 GB RAM as against 2 GB on A02.
  • Snapdragon-powered A02s is more battery efficient than A02 with Mediatek chipset.
  • A02s features 15W fast charging.
  • A02s comes with Android 12, the latest you can get today.
  • A02 has a better Bluetooth protocol at v5.
  • A02 front camera can record 1080p videos.
  • A02 screen has a better protection with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The commonalities between the two devices are:

  • Both devices sport 6.5-inch 1600x720 pixel displays.
  • Both devices are made of a plastic frame, and the rear is also plastic, putting them squarely in the budget category.
  • Both devices come with 32 GB storage.
  • Both devices feature a 5000 mah battery.
  • Both devices have the same rear camera at 13 mp.
  • Both devices have the same front camera at 5 mp, but the A02 can record 1080p videos with it, whereas A02s cannot.
  • Both devices are dual-sim, dual-standby, and wi-fi 4 devices with no 5g support.

Part II: What Is Google FRP?

google frp for android devices

Google FRP is a protection system Google built into Android OS that works to ensure that unauthorized users are unable to wipe their Android devices and use them as their own.

When you reset an Android device to factory settings, a PIN is required before the reset process is initiated. This PIN is your screen unlock PIN, so by any chance, if that PIN is compromised, the unauthorized user can reset your device to factory settings and use it as theirs. This is where Google Factory Reset Protection comes into play.

As you know, when the device is reset to factory settings, you are required to set it up again. At that point, you may also use your Google Account with the phone if you want to use certain features. However, with Google Factory Reset Protection, the device will require users to enter the credentials of the Google Account it was associated with before it was reset to factory settings, preventing and deterring unauthorized users from using that Android device as theirs.

Now, for legitimate reasons, can we bypass it? Oh, you know we can. Here are ways to bypass Google FRP if you need to. It is not recommended that you do it, but sometimes it is needed.

Part III: How To Bypass Google FRP On Samsung A02/A02s

Below are methods you can use to bypass Google FRP on Samsung A02/A02s devices:

Method 1: Remove Your Google Account

Now, the simplest and the easiest way to bypass Google FRP on Samsung A02/A02s is to remove the Google account associated with the phone. That way, all protections and features offered by the association are removed, including Google FRP. You do this mainly when you want to trade in your old phone for another and want to remove all remnants of your accounts from the phone.

Step 1: Go to Settings > Accounts > Google.

Step 2: Tap the Google account > Tap the ellipses > Tap Remove Account:

Remove all Google accounts the same way. You will find your WhatsApp/ Telegram/ Signal/ Facebook/ Instagram accounts here as well. No need to remove them to bypass Google FRP.

Step 3: As you have removed your Google account from the device, now when you reset your phone to factory defaults, it will not require you to enter the previously associated Google account credentials.

Method 2: Use Dr.Fone - Screen Unlock (Android) To Bypass Google FRP On Samsung A02/A02s Safely

Now, another reason you may want to bypass Google FRP is when your screen is locked and you forgot the passcode. You can do that with Dr.Fone Screen Unlock.
