The FRP lock (Factory Reset Protection) is introduced by Google for the sole purpose of protection of data. Well, because of the FRP, one cannot necessarily access the respective device unless he or she knows the credentials. That means the respective individual must know the Google credentials that are associated with the account to factory reset.
Why do you need to disable FRP lock?
As of today, the usefulness of the FRP locks is imperative, specifically when the device is lost. If your device is stolen by someone and tries to reset it, that will be prevented by FRP. Regardless of how useful this feature is, it could be problematic if you have forgotten the password. In that case, you will not be able to reset the device until you recall the memory. However, there are some methods to disable FRP lock, and we describe them below.
