You have a mobile phone and cannot unlock it. This usually happens when you find a device that nobody claims, or when your grandparents forget the password they initially set. Of course, the main problem with this is that you can hardly use the device as there is not much to do when it is locked. Since we can’t move as much as we would like with the locked phone, having a desktop or laptop computer assisting in this process is essential. Both of them will help us download the application we need and transfer it to the device we want to unlock.
What you need to remove your phone’s FRP protection
In short, to overcome this situation you need four key elements:
- A computer
- A pen drive
- Die App FRP-Bypass
- An OTG adapter
In case you don’t know what the latter is, it’s a cable that lets you connect a USB device to your mobile device. We know that getting an external physical tool isn’t ideal, but given the situation, we assure you it will be worth it.
How to remove FPR lock from your Android device
Now that all the requirements are clear, it’s time to get down to business. Download the app first, then install it and finally use the factory reset option to let FRP Bypass do its work.
Download FRP Bypass to your computer

You will be taken to a confirmation page where you click the green download button again.
A new window will now appear in which you can select a storage location for the downloaded file. Choose a folder that’s easy to find and click Save. In this case we chose Downloads decided.
Save the file in a folder
Install FRP bypass on your Android

- You may be asked to enable installation from external sources, which you can simply accept.
To complete the process, simply factory reset your device.
Force factory reset
This process is fairly simple and involves a combination of the external buttons you’ll find on modern devices. The only complication is that the pattern changes depending on the manufacturer. That’s why we try to help you make this process as hassle-free as possible.
- In many cases, holding down the volume up and power buttons is enough.
- If you have a Samsung device, the button that is used in conjunction with the power button is the volume up button.
- LG devices require both volume buttons and power button
We hope this guide was helpful to you and that you were able to restore functionality to your locked device.
