    It's still possible to bypass the factory reset protection on Samsung phones
    A long time ago, it was discovered that you could bypass the factory reset protection on many Android phones. That hole has since been patched, but another one has surfaced that seems to only affect Samsung phones.

    The method involves side-loading apps and manipulating the OS to download a third-party file manager from the Samsung apps store. The method is known to work on Samsung's 2015 and 2016 flagships, though there may be more devices included.
