Disabling factory reset protection (FRP)

Satish Shetty Updated by Satish Shetty

Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is an important security feature on Android devices that prevents unauthorized access to the device after a factory reset. However, in some cases, it may be necessary to temporarily disable FRP. If you have Codeproof MDM enrolled devices and need to disable FRP, here are the steps to follow.

  1. In the policy manager, Select a device or a group of devices.
  2. Then go to "Factory reset protection" tab on the right panel.
  3. Uncheck the "Enable" button.
  4. Click on "Save".
  5. Now the factory reset protection will be disabled in the device.

We can use the "Security Info" section in the device properties to verify the FRP status of the device.
