How to remove FRP Lock /Google Account Protection on spreadtrum devices like itel,opsson, etc with 2016 security patch

Factory Reset protection is the new security google added to android lollipop. When you reset the device from recovery menu, FRP switch is tripped which will ask the user to input the Google account that was previously used on the device. Even though this was made for security reasons, we sometimes forget the account details that was on the device before reset so stuck on input Google account details.

Some weeks ago I shared a method on how to bypass Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on SPD devices. That method would work if the phone is not running on the 2016 security patch. The following method I'm sharing now will walk you through on how to bypass frp on devices with 2016 security patch.

The method is almost similar like the previous one I shared but just a change of app used. We will be using Quick Shortcut Maker apk this time around.


This method can also work on some other devices

Make sure device have at least 30% battery life
Do this at your own risk

Download Quick Shortcut  Maker app from here

Insert SIM card into phone and boot it up
Call the number inside the phone
Answer the call by swiping up to message icon
Select Write your own message from the pop up

It will now take you to messaging interface
Now tap the Call icon found near the number you used in calling
It will take you to dialer interface
Click on contacts icon (head near call button)

Now select any contact
Click on the menu icon (3 dots) at the top right and select Share

Select Xender from the list of apps that popup
Connect device to PC and transfer Quick Shortcut Maker app to phone (you can also send it using Xender)
Under Xender, swipe to files tab, then navigate, locate an install Quick Shortcut  Maker app
Launch it after installation is complete.

After launching Quick Shortcut, you will see a bunch of settings
Type in Google Account in the Search BarSelect Google Account Manager from the listUnder Google Account Manger, scroll down and select the option with Type Email and Password Now Tap Type to launch it

You will now see Re-type password page
Tap the 3 dots at top right and select Browser Sign-in
Tap OK and sign in your Account (Connect device to a WiFi network)
After a successful Sign-in, you will be faced with Quick Shortcut app interface

Reboot the phone and set it up normally.

If you are doing this for somebody, after the bypass, go and do a factory reset from settings menu (Backup and Reset option) so as to clear your account from the device.
