Using Google FRP on Your Galaxy Tab S2
Google FRP (Factory Reset Protection) prevents others from activating your device if it has been reset to factory settings without your permission. If your device is lost or stolen, only someone with your Google account information can use the device.
Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Sending in for Service/Repair
Before you request a repair under warranty, Google account must be removed prior to sending the device to the Service Centre for service/repair.

Help Protect Your Device
Set a Screen Lock
If your device is lost or stolen and you have a screen lock set, the device can't be erased using the Settings app unless your screen is unlocked.
If your device is stolen and you have not set the screen lock, you can still lock it remotely with Android Device Manager. You'll need to have added your Google Account to your device before it was lost or stolen, and your device will need to be turned on and connected to the Internet.
Add your Google Account to your device
If your device gets wiped but you have your Google Account on it, the device can't finish setup until your Google Account information is entered again.
• If you reset your Google Account password and need to do a factory reset, wait 24 hours after changing your password to reset your device.
• For security purposes, you can't use an account to set up a device after reset if that password was changed within 24 hours.
