Factory Reset Protection(FRP) is introduced by Google on March 2015. They developed this feature to prevent thieves from using lost or stolen Android devices. This feature also helps to protect your data from loss and protect from snatchers. If thieves reset the phone it may ask for owner’s Email and Password. So without them the phone may become useless.
