Why would you want to bypass FRP? First, you might have stolen the device you’re having in mind and if this is your case, then I am not here to help you and may you get what’s coming to you. However, at the same time, there are legit reasons for bypassing it.

There are cases when Galaxy S7 Edge owners and not only unknowingly reset their phone with password and screen lock protection on and this would result to FRP being tripped. So, the next time the phone boots up, the owner will be asked to enter the Google Account that was previously setup on the phone. It’s actually not a problem if you know it, but there are also users who don’t even know they need a Google account to use their Android phones.

Or maybe you are buying a phone off someone and they forgot to remove FRP before handing it over to you. Is there any solution in such a case?
