How to Setup Activation Lock on Android
Google introduced Factory Reset Protection with Android 5.0 Lollipop to help users to protect their devices from unwanted access in case of losing their phone.
It is really useful security feature for Android users and it was much needed as iOS users already had iCloud.
If you want to protect your personal data, here is the step-by-step guide how to setup Activation lock and secure your device.
Setup is almost similar for all Android phones including Samsung, Google Pixel, LG, HTC, Huawei and other brands.
Here are the exact steps to setup FRP on your device. As I said earlier, settings are almost similar for all Android devices including Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S9, LG G6, and Huawei P10 or any other device.
Please note that for this guide I am using Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and Samsung account is needed to activate Factory reset protection but for other phones, you don’t need to have a Samsung account.
Note - USE YOUR SAMSUNG ACCOUNT TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM REACTIVATING YOUR DEVICE. BEFORE YOU REQUEST A REPAIR UNDER WARRANTY, THE REACTIVATION LOCK MUST BE DISABLED. MAKE SURE YOU CREATE AN UNLOCK PASSWORD THAT YOU CAN REMEMBER.
The procedure to disable FRP on Android is simple. Go to Settings > System > Security > Find My Mobile > Reactivation lock and uncheck it.
That’s it. I hope it was easy. Let us know if you have any questions.
