In most cases, users forget their email or password and are stuck at the Google verification screen. But you don’t to have worry as I have got you covered.

    Thanks to the anonymous developer who has released an APK app that can help you to bypass the verification step and then erase everything to get access back to your normal Samsung Galaxy device.

    Hey, Its not over yet…


    I hope by the end of the step-by-step guide you’ve successfully bypassed FRP. If in case you were unable to do it, here are my suggestions and should work 100%.

    You need to downgrade Android version, If possible. Look Factory Reset Protection was released with Android 5.0 Lollipop, where it was in beta stages and therefore it was easy to bypass. It is only available for older devices such as Galaxy S5, S4, Note 4, Note 3 and all Galaxy J and Galaxy A series.
