The ultimate guide to Samsung FRP (Factory Reset Protection) or Reactivation lock with the latest tips tricks and methods to unlock your phone.
Every bypass method shown or explained in our ultimate guide works 100%. I am repeating again it works every time.
But it only works when you know the exact version of Android installed on your Samsung phone. For example, Android 5.0 or 5.1.1 have different FRP bypass methods and one trick that works on 5.1.1 may not work on Android PIE 9.0 and Android 10 which comes with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Note 10 Plus, S10, S9 Plus, S8 and Galaxy Note 9.
So the secret to successfully bypass FRP on all Samsung Galaxy models is to find the version of Android installed on your phone.
To find the version of Android running on your phone, simply boot your phone into download mode and you would know about the Android version installed as you can see in the screenshot taken from Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J710F:
As you can see in the above screenshot, the phone is running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the phone model is J710F.
When you know the version of Android installed on your phone then it becomes a lot easier to choose the right bypass method and chances of getting success becomes 100% as I have already stated all bypass tools and methods are for a specific version of Android.
What is Samsung Factory Reset Protection (FRP)?
Factory Reset Protection was introduced with the Android Lollipop (5.0) to protect your device from unauthorized access if in case someone wipes factory data reset your phone without your permission using the Android Recovery mode (Power+Volume+Home or Power+Bixby button+Volume up). It is good security measurement added for Android users to at least protect their personal data from unwanted access.
By default, when you add Google account to your phone, FRP is enabled. Now, whenever your phone wiped data factory reset without the phone Settings > General management > Reset > Factory data reset then it would frp lock your phone as shown in the image below:
Now if you’ve forgotten your Google account credentials, then you’re in trouble, and probably it is the reason you’re reading this guide.

Samsung SideSync Bypass:
SideSync is Samsung PC suite for Samsung phones to manage your phone data. To use SideSync you need to install both on your phone and PC. It is available for both Windows and PC and similarly, you can download the mobile app from Google Play Store.
The SideSync FRP bypass trick only works with only older versions of Android 5.0 and 5.1.1 as Google has already patched it.
Only try this method if you’re sure your phone is running the older version of Android as it does not work on the newer versions.
The Samsung phones that could be unlocked with this method are Samsung Galaxy Core, earlier models of J1, J2, J3, J4, J5, and J7. It won’t work on the latest models of J series as you know Samsung releases new versions of the Samsung models like J1 2016, 2017 and 2018, etc.
I have already explained this method over here:
It is almost similar to the first method, but instead of using the OTG cable, you’re going to use your PC.
Step 1: First of all you need to download and install Samsung SideSync on your PC.
Step 2: After installation launches the SideSync application and connect your phone using the USB cable.
Step 3: You should get a popup as shown in the screenshot below:
Step 4: Tap on the Chrome icon. Accept the terms and condition and continue to use google chrome. Enter the following into the URL bar to download FRP bypass apk on your phone.
Step 5: When the apk file is downloaded then go back to the first screen and tap OK to open the Samsung apps store. On the next screen, you would be asked to install the SideSync app, ignore it and search for the ES File Explorer to install it.
Note: You need to have a Samsung account to download and install apps.
Step 6: After successfully installing the file manager app, launch it to find and install the recently downloaded apk file. It is in the downloads folder, tap to install it.
Note: When installing the app, a blocked app message will popup, just tap on the settings and enable ‘Unknown Sources’ option.
Step 7: Launch the app and it would open the Settings app. Scroll down and find the Backup and Reset option to completely reset your device.
Step 8: Tap on the Factory data reset and reset your device.
That’s it when your phone reboots normally it won’t ask for the Google account which was previously used with your phone. You can now easily add your new Google account.

All FRP bypass methods given above are 100% working for all Samsung phones and Tablets but they only work on a specific version of Android version and security update. Google always releases new security updates to fix the bypass loopholes, so there is a chance that when you follow any of the above methods, it may not work for you.
If it does not work for you, here is how to make it work for you:
- If one method is not working, try another and so on. Currently, it is not impossible to bypass FRP. All you need is some patience and understand how it works as explained at the start of this post.
- Downgrade the Android version on your device, if it is possible. In simple words, if your phone is updated to Android 8.0 then downgrade it to Android 7.0 using Odin.
- It is possible that you have got the latest flagship phone or tablet including Galaxy Note 10, S10 Plus, S9, Note 8 running the latest security. In this case, it is a bit harder to find latest FRP bypass method so I would recommend you to buy our premium remote FRP unlock service. We can unlock any Samsung device running Android within a few minutes.
