As a budget competitor, the Xiaomi POCO brand has released an all-new Poco C3 in October 2020 that comes with a 6.43-inches LCD HD+ display, Android 10 (MIUI 12), MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, triple rear cameras, a 5,000mAh battery, and more. Now, if you’re one of the Poco C3 device users and want to remove or bypass the Google account verification quite easily then you can check out How to Bypass FRP on Poco C3 | Remove Google Verification by following this guide.
If you don’t know or can’t understand the FRP Lock, it’s also known as the “Factory Reset Protection” lock. That means whenever you as a user or even someone else performs a factory reset on your already activated latest Android device to wipe out everything, on the first boot Google will always ask for the previously used Google account credentials in order to verify that you’re the valid owner of the handset.

In that scenario, your device system will ask you something like “This device was reset, to continue to sign in with a google account that was previously synced on this device”. Therefore, all you need to simply input your previously used Gmail ID and password. It basically strengthens your device system and data security from unknown users. However, if in case, you’re the sole user of this device and forgot the Gmail ID or password then you can follow this step-by-step guide to easily unlock or bypass or remove the FRP lock.
What is FRP Lock?
‘FRP’ stands for “Factory Reset Protection”. It’s an improved security measure that has been taken by Google for its Android OS running devices (Android 5.1 Lollipop or higher). This functionality gets activated once you sign in to a Google Account on your Android device for the very first time. That means once it’s activated, the system will add an extra layer of security in the term of Google verification whenever you or someone else performs a factory reset.
So, unless you input the previously used Google Account Credentials when prompted after a factory reset, there is no shortcut way to unlock it. Fortunately, the customizations and open-source nature of the Android operating system lets us perform some tasks from the device even after locked status. Now, without wasting any more time, let’s get into it.
