Samsung Bypass Google account – A few words for Android power-users
A couple notes need added here. This doesn’t undo Samsung’s (or anyone else’s) version of Reactivation Lock. If you’ve enabled data reset protection through your Samsung account, you’ll need to turn that off in your Security settings. You can find the switch under the “Find My Mobile” section. If you’ve forgotten to turn off FRP and sent a phone to someone else, you’ll likely need to help them get it setup. This means giving them access to your Google account password. Do that while you’re talking to them and as soon as they are done you’ll want to reset your account password. This sounds sketchy, but be a good seller and do the right thing. Then change that password ASAP because you never want anyone else to have your Google password. I’m sure you can see why disabling FRP before you send a phone off to someone else is a much better solution. While we haven’t seen headlines telling us mobile phone theft is down by any measurable percentage since Samsung Bypass Google account was enabled, it’s still a good way to keep your data safe.
Samsung Bypass Google account it’s pretty easy to disable when you want someone else to be able to use your old phone.
If you change the default security on your phone (root, unlock your boot loader, or simply check the box to allow it) this issue and these instructions are not for you. Most things related to security and OS integrity are not for you, because you elected to take care of those issues yourself. That’s not a bad thing, unless you checked boxes and did things without understanding the implications.
Remember, we’re the 1-percenters when it comes to Android. We aren’t the people something like FRP was designed for because we care about unlocked boot loaders and don’t want someone to worry about protecting us from ourselves or anyone else.
If you’re using a phone that’s not running Android as written, it may or may not use the same reset protection methods. Those particular devices are best covered with their own article talking about their own methods of theft-prevention. Those are coming.
Also — if you’re using a phone that was shipped with a version of Android older than 5.1.1, this may or may not apply to you — that’s up to the manufacturer to decide. Likely no update will enable Samsung Bypass Google account on a phone that didn’t ship with it in the first place.
