Let’s check out the steps to bypass FRP on Samsung Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus. Factory Reset Protection or more popularly as FRP is a security mechanism implemented by Google in Android 5.1 and later devices. This feature is enabled automatically as soon as you register a Google account to your device. And if you perform a factory data reset on your device without removing this Google account, the FRP will be tripped.
So when the device reboots, it will ask for Google ID and password that was used with this device. If you know your Google account credentials, well then simply enter the same and you could easily use your device. This acts as a great security measure in case your device gets stolen. But what if you have accidentally tripped the FRP and now don’t remember the account credentials?
Well, this used to spell out trouble in earlier times, but now there is a handy way out to deal with this situation. In this guide, we will focus to achieve the same on a couple of Samsung devices. So if you are looking for ways to bypass this FRP (factory reset protection) on the Samsung Galaxy S10 or the S10 Plus, then this tutorial will help you out. Follow along.
