When Bypassing Google Lock is Needed?

2. Bought a pre-owned locked Samsung device
If you have unfortunately sold a locked Samsung device from a merchant or seller, then bypassing it yourself may save you a lot of hassle.
3. Running a phone buyback and re-selling business
If you are in the buyback and pre-owned phone-selling business, you will encounter various problems with the phones you acquire. And the Google FRP problem is definitely one of the most common ones. The ability to bypass FRP yourself should be one of the knowledge you should know.

- Tap “Manage Accounts”, then select your Google account
- Select “Remove Account”, then confirm it.
- When prompted, verify your identity and get rid of the Samsung FRP lock.
