Android devices provide built-in security features especially all Samsung devices this features be can use to protect your device and information, including screen locks and data encryption. Data protection, or Factory Reset Protection (FRP), is a security feature on Android devices with Lollipop (5.1) and higher version like marshmallow (6.0) nougat (7.0) oreo (8.0).
Factory reset protection (FRP) is automatically activated when you set up a Google Account on your Samsung device it’s automatically synchronized your Google Account with your devices. Once FRP is activated on your Samsung device, it prevents use of a device after a factory data reset on the devices, until you log in using a Google username and password previously set up on the Samsung device.
How does FRP work Samsung device
When you perform a Factory Data Reset, all settings are returned to the factory default settings. All data is erased, including files, downloaded apps, installed apps and document stored on the devices.
If you have a Google Account set up on the Samsung device, FRP is active already. This means that after the reset, you’ll be required to log in to the Google Account using the username and password. If you have multiple Google Accounts set up on the device, you can log in using any of the accounts.
If an unauthorized person tries to reset the device by another method, the device would still require log-in using the Google username and password. This means that if your device is lost or stolen, another person would not be able to reset it and use it.
