This can be used for both good and evil, but most likely it will be used for the latter. If you performed a factory reset from your recovery menu and can’t seem to remember your account information, just a quick install from the APK and you should be good to go. Alternatively, and much more likely, this is a tool that can be used if someone steals your Samsung device and doesn’t have your password.
Factory Reset Protection is in Android for a reason, and it’s a little unsettling to think that Samsung devices are vulnerable at the moment. We’ll be sure to let you know if Samsung issues a fix. But for now, let’s hope if you do happen to lose your phone, it doesn’t end up in the wrong tech-savvy person’s hands.
It works like that: when FRP is switched on along with your own Android device is uninstalled in the retrieval menu, then the Android apparatus will ask that you re-enter the main Google account data that has been last on the gadget. This implies that if a person steals your telephone and resets it out of retrieval, there is no way for them to get in.
Well, with one huge exception.
Should you just happen to get a Samsung apparatus, you can skip Factory Reset Protection by utilizing an OTG drive along with one APK. In the movie shown beneath, RootJunky managed to skip FRP on his Samsung apparatus in only under 10 minutes.
You see, there is a feature on Samsung apparatus which will automatically establish a document manager once an OTG drive is plugged in, even if the telephone is locked. So whenever the system requests you to input into your Google account data, just add your OTG drive and then set up the APK (connected in the movie’s description) in your device. The APK will pull the Settings menu which means that you may scroll down and carry out a factory info reset in the Preferences menu.
