Google has introduced, for some years now, a new system to keep our Android device safe in case of theft; we are talking about the FRP block, which stands for Factory Reset Protection. Its operation is simple: it combines an Android device with a Google account to prevent it from being formatted and reused after theft. Although this system is very useful for the protection of the smartphone, very often it can cause various problems, such as when a user wants to format their device but do not remember the login credentials of the Google account; in fact, in this case, it will not be able to carry out this procedure. That’s why it may be useful to know how to remove FRP from Android. In this article we will see in particular how to remove FRP from Android 8.0 Oreo and Android 8.1.
