Google has introduced its Factory Reset Protection (FRP) feature for Android with the launch of Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is an attempt to safeguard and stop unauthorized use on your phone in the event that it is stolen or lost.

What is the meaning of Factory Reset Protection (FRP)? FRP is a security and protection feature that prevents thieves from using a lost or stolen device, even if they attempt to reset the phone to factory settings, or even flash it. FRP only works when you’re logged into your Google account. If someone attempts to reset your phone using recovery mode, they will be required to enter Google account information, i.e. the email address and password of the previous created Google Account on that device to gain access. The user won’t be able to access the device without restriction unless he has the right password and email. For FRP to be used it is necessary to have an active Google account set up on their device. It’s advised to secure the screen lock to ensure that the attacker doesn’t have the option to reset the phone factory by using the “Backup and Reset” option within the settings. It is also recommended to delete your Google account prior to bringing your phone to a service center to be repaired.
