FRP which is also known as Factory Reset Protection is a security feature on Android lollipop devices and above that protects it from theft or unauthorized setup. FRP is triggered when you reset the phone via recovery or any other method while there’s a signed-in Google account in the device.
It’s very popular nowadays since most people are getting devices with newer Android versions. Like in previous tutorials, I explained how one can successfully bypass FRP on Samsung devices without much stress. Although the method doesn’t work on all the Samsung devices, it still works on some.
In this post I will show you how to bypass FRP on recent Samsung Android devices without using a flashing box like NCK, Miracle Box, Z3X, without OTG, without SideSync, without Smart Switch etc. You don’t need any combination file to achieve this. All you have to do is, get a PC and the necessary apps to get the job done.
The device I used in making this tutorial is a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime + SM-G532F, running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with security patch level dated 1 October, 2016. The device uses a MediaTekMT6735 Chipset and does its job smoothly.
I wanted to bypass it as fast as possible because the client wasn’t residing in my state. After trying Z3X, Miracle Box, NCK etc, I decided to do it manually using the popular method.
If you are ready, let’s begin.
