What is FRP?
FRP stands for ‘Factory Reset Protection’. It’s a new security feature from Google for the MediaTek-powered devices which activates when you log in with Gmail ID on your device for the first time ever. After it gets activated, the security feature prevents the phone from using until you provide the same Google Account Credentials. Therefore, if you lost your phone and someone fully reset your device to use it, it will ask for credentials. That’s a good move from Google though but if you forget it, you have to follow the below-mentioned steps to remove it.
