As part of the new Android Version 5.0 Lollipop, Google introduced a brand new feature called Factory Reset protection which ensures the protection of users private data if in case of any mobile theft or loss, due to which one cannot perform a successful hard data reset without providing the actual credentials that one used to enable factory reset protection. Hence if your smartphone gets stolen or lost you can at least be sure that no one else can wipe your personal data, But the trouble is when you yourself forget the credentials after hard resetting your Android device and now that’s no more a problem coz an anonymous developer has released an app that can help you bypass the google or Samsung account verification process and wipe everything to get back the normal access.
