Bypass Factory Reset Protection on your YU Yuphoria YU5010A

With the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has decided to introduce a new security feature with it. If you want to factory reset your phone with recovery and to boot it, then the device will ask you to verify your previous Google Account. If you don’t remember it, then the story is pretty simple: you cannot have access to the device. In such conditions, is there a method to Bypass Factory Reset Protection on your YU Yuphoria YU5010A?

The main aim for introducing this security feature is an obvious one: this tries to prevent selling of stolen devices. But there’s a simple trick to bypass this security feature and for a good reason. Even though this was made for security reasons, we sometimes forget our account details (yes, this can happen) that were on the device before reset, so we are stuck on inputting the Google account details. Is this your story with the YU Yuphoria YU5010A handset as well?
