    There is no bypass. Because if there was, it would defeat the object of having the privacy protection. .

    A factory reset will remove the privacy protection password, as well as removing all of the data that that password protects (i.e. everything on the phone). So provided you do know the Google login and password for the phone (which you will require in order to get into the phone after a reset) this is a possible solution if you care about getting into the phone but don't care about the data on it. You will not be able to recover any data on the phone after a reset unless you have a backup that is not on the phone (the phone storage is encrypted and the reset will erase the encryption key), so if your concern is recovering data then do not do a reset.

    If you don't know the Google login credentials currently on this device then whatever you do do not reset the phone, as that will lock you out even worse than now and will also have erased your data.

    Have you checked the options for recovering from a forgotten password? Like resetting from the email or phone number that was used to register the account.

    If it is forgotten, go to Google for password recovery on another device.

    Surely that's for account passwords rather than "privacy protection" (lockscreen) passwords.

    You're correct, though this OP had a single sentence which was vague, and there was a similar longer thread with @kate that dealt more with a locked screen on a reset devices (which I didn't know could happen)

    My mind is a sieve since yesterday. :rolleyes:o_O

    Privacy protection password gets you in to someone's set up device and their account?

    Google"s account password + login enables avoiding FRP when resetting another's device

    Why someone's reset and account removed device on the other thread still had a lock screen password I couldn't figure.

    Yeah, it's just what Google call the lockscreen password.
    If I were being pedantic (which is an occupational hazard in my line of work) I'd say that the Google login unlocks the phone after FRP is activated. The way to avoid FRP is to remove the account before resetting, but you need to unlock the screen to do that.
    Yeah, that does not make a lot of sense to me...
