What is Factory Data Protection?
Once you add a Google account to your device, the Factory Data Protection (FRP) feature is activated. This prevents unauthorized users from factory resetting the device and using it for themselves. If you are selling your Galaxy Tab S7 or sending it for repair, you will need to disable FRP. To do so, simply remove your Google account under “Settings” > “Accounts and backup” > “Accounts” > Google account > “Remove account“.
