    The hard reset can be done at any time, without knowing the password of the device. Of course, if you do a hard reset terminal you know that you ask for the password from the previous Google Account used on it (if there was any) thanks to the FRP. Here's how to avoid or off Factory Reset Protection.

    Nothing will be left, or accounts or photos from memory or anything. Remember that these steps are often carried out following problems that apparently have no solution and are not related to the hardware or when we sell our mobile to another buyer and do not want to have access to our information. The process is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S6, S7 Edge Galaxy, Galaxy S6 Plus, Galaxy S6 Edge and even the Galaxy Note 5 to the next Samsung Galaxy Note 6. In this process usually does not vary from year to year.
