How to Bypass Google Verification on an Android Device
Loading Something is loading.Google verification is one of the company’s security features that you’llencounter as an Android owner.Another, newer layer on top of that is called Factory Reset Protection, orFRP. Essentially, it’s a security feature that helps ensure that your data isprotected even if your phone is lost or stole by maintaining your data, evenin the event of a reset. And you have to go through Google’s verificationprocess in order to reap the benefits of FRP.That’s fine if you remember your Google login info that you used to set upyour device. But if you don’t, or that account isn’t active anymore,verification is more of a problem than it is a useful security feature. Still,there are ways to bypass Google verification, either by disabling FRP orresetting your device.Before diving in, keep in mind that these directions are geared toward thosewith Lollipop 5.1 (an Android OS) or newer.

How to bypass Google verification: Reset your device
Depending on your device, the option to disable FRP may not be directlyaccessible to you. In that case, doing a factory reset is your best option tobypass Google’s verification requirement.Before starting, it’s important to note that this process will wipe all ofyour data from the device, restoring it to factory settings. (So backing upyour data beforehand is a good idea if you can.) It’s also a slightlylengthier and more involved process, but it will still accomplish your goal.Here’s how to get it done:1. Go to your settings.2. Select “System” then “Advanced” (or, if you don’t see “Advanced” skip to the next step).3. Tap “Reset options” (or, your device may simply say “Factory data reset” — if so, select that option), and then select either “reset phone” or “reset tablet,” depending on your device.Tap “Factory data reset.” Devon Delfino/Business Insider4. Go through the reset process until you reach the Google verification page, then press the back button to get to the Wireless Network screen.5.

In the upper-right corner, open the menu (three stacked lines) and tap “Account.”9. Next, you should see a prompt to go to “Settings;” if you’re prompted for verification, select “Continue.”10. Under “Settings” select “Backup and Reset” followed by “Factory Data Reset.”One more thing to note about the above process is that, since this methodremoves your Google account from your device, you will be logged out of someapps if you were logged in through that account.How to power reset, restart, or set the Android TV or Google TV back tooriginal factory settingsThere are three different ways to reset your Android TV™ or Google TV™depending on the issue you are experiencing: * Step 1 (Power Reset/Restart) is always recommended first as it can resolve many issues and doesn’t affect saved information. * Step 2 (Factory Data Reset) is the next step and will erase all customer settings as it resets the TV to factory specifications. * Step 3 (Forced Factory Reset) is the final option and will also erase all customer settings as it resets the TV to factory specifications.
