You have a cellphone and you cannot unlock it. This usually happens when you find a device that no one claims or when your grandparents forget the password they set in the first place. Of course, the main problem here is that you can hardly do anything with the device blocked. As we will not be able to maneuver as much as we would like with the cellphone locked, in this process, it will be essential to have the support of a desktop or laptop computer. Any of these will help us to download the required application and transfer it to the device we want to unlock.
What you need to disable FRP protection from your cellphone
In summary, to overcome this situation, you will need four key elements:
