Factory Reset protection is the new security google added to android lollipop. When you reset the device from recovery menu, FRP switch is tripped then when you boot up the device, you will be asked to input the Google account that was previously used on the device before factory reset.
Even though this was made for security reasons, we sometimes forget the account details that was on the device before reset so stuck on input Google account details.
I’ve done some other tutorials on how to reset frp on samsung devices with older security patch you can also check them out.
Here I will be showing you how to remove frp on samsung galaxy S8 and S8+ using combination files. The process is not that complicated if you follow the instructions carefully.
