A Comprehensive Analysis of FRP Bypass Techniques

Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is a security feature that was introduced by Google in Android 5.1 Lollipop and later versions to ensure the security of user data. The purpose of this feature is to prevent unauthorized access to the user’s device, data, and settings. FRP is activated when a user performs a factory reset on their Android device. After the reset, the user must enter the Google account credentials associated with the device to regain access. This feature protects the device from being wiped and used by a new user if it is lost or stolen. However, many cases arise where the user needs to bypass the FRP lock. Here we will discuss the different FRP Bypass techniques and how to use them.

Method #1: OTG Cable

The first method that we’ll be discussing involves the use of an OTG (On-The-Go) cable. An OTG cable allows you to connect your Android device to a USB device like a mouse or a keyboard. Here’s how to bypass FRP using an OTG cable:

Step 1: Download the FRP bypass apk from your trusted source and transfer it to a USB flash drive.

Step 2: Connect the USB flash drive to your Android device using an OTG cable.

Step 3: You’ll see the APK file you transferred on the screen. Tap on it to install it.

Step 4: Once the installation is completed, open the app and follow the instructions to bypass the FRP lock.

While this method may seem simple, it doesn’t work for all Android devices. If you are not able to enable the USB debugging option on your device, this method will not work for you.

Method #2: ADB Tool

The Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tool is a command-line utility that allows you to communicate with your Android device from your computer. To bypass FRP using ADB tool, you need to have a computer with a USB cable and USB debugging enabled on your Android device. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Connect your Android device to the computer and open a command prompt window.

Step 2: Enter the following command: adb devices. This command will list all the devices connected to your computer. If your device is not listed, make sure USB debugging is enabled.

Step 3: Next, enter the command: adb shell pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.google.android.gsf.login. This command will uninstall the Google login service which is responsible for the FRP lock.

Step 4: Reboot the device.

Step 5: Once the device restarts, you can set it up without entering the Google account credentials.

This method is tested and verified by many Android users but it requires proper technical expertise. In case of any error, it is better to stop the process and seek expert advice.

Method #3: Combination File

Combination files are firmware files that include a portion of the Android operating system that allows you to bypass FRP. Combination files are device-specific and can be easily found on the internet. Here’s how to use a combination file to bypass FRP:

Step 1: Download the combination file for your device.

Step 2: Extract the firmware files from the downloaded file.

Step 3: Flash the firmware file using Odin (a software designed to flash firmware).

Step 4: Reboot the device.

Step 5: Once the device is restarted, you’ll be able to set it up without entering the Google account credentials.

This method requires software expertise to flash the firmware files on the device. In case of any error during the process, the device may be bricked. So, it is better to take the expert advice before proceeding with this method.

Method #4: Custom Recovery

Custom recovery such as TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project) can also be used to bypass FRP. However, this method requires a rooted device and the right firmware file specific for your device to be installed in advance. Here’s how to use a custom recovery to bypass FRP:

Step 1: Download and install the custom recovery for your device.

Step 2: Download the firmware file for your device.

Step 3: Install the firmware file using the custom recovery.

Step 4: Reboot the device.

Step 5: Once the device is restarted, you’ll be able to set it up without entering the Google account credentials.

This method is not recommended for beginners as it requires technical knowledge of rooting and installing custom recovery. This method also voids the device warranty.


1. Is FRP Bypass Illegal?

FRP bypass is not illegal. However, using it to bypass FRP lock on a stolen device is illegal.

2. Can we bypass FRP Lock Without PC?

Yes, we can bypass FRP without a PC using the OTG method.

3. Can FRP be bypassed without resetting?

No, you have to reset the device to bypass FRP.

4. Will Bypassing FRP Remove Factory Reset Protection from the Device?

FRP is an essential security feature to protect the user’s device and data from unauthorized access. However, it can be frustrating if you forget your Google account credentials or buy a second-hand device with a locked FRP. In this article, we have discussed the different methods to bypass the FRP lock on Android devices. However, it is important to note that these methods have their own limitations, and it’s better to take expert advice before proceeding.
