Aiming at improving the Android devices security, Google introduced the Factory Reset Protection (FRP) with Android 5.1. To factory reset a device featuring the FRP, you will need a password for the Google account synced on the device.
The FRP feature affects people who own genuine devices. For example, if you purchase a secondhand phone featuring the original owner’s Google account or forget the password for your Google account, resetting the device becomes tough. Fortunately, online services and tools which can be used to bypass the FRP are available. An example of an online service you can use is Unlockjunky.
Unlockjunky claims that it has the ability to bypass the FRP lock in less than 5 minutes. The device owner will not take care of the unlocking. The Unlockjunky team will unlock the device remotely. This suggests that the FRP bypass service is easy to use.
Unlockjunky supports a limited number of Android device brands. When we clicked the “Select brand” box on the service provider’s website, we realized that Unlockjunky supports only 3 main brands. You can only unlock LG, Motorola, Samsung, and ZTE using Unlockjunky.
The Unlockjunky software only works on computers running the Windows OS. If you own a MacBook, you will have to download and install a third-party application that mimics the Windows operating system before you can go ahead and use Unlockjunky to bypass the FRP lock.
To bypass the FRP lock using Unlockjunky, you will need to follow the steps we have outlined below:
Step 1: Visit the Unlockjunky website. On the homepage, select the device’s brand, model and the unlock type. Next, click Unlock.

Step 5: Start a live chat with the Unlockjunky team. The team will tell you how to complete the unlocking process.
Your devices have to be connected to the internet for the unlock to succeed.
The service only supports 4 Android Brands. Each brand only have some models supported.
The service does not have a free trial. You will have to pay even before you know whether the service is ideal for your device.
You cannot handle the unlock process yourself.
To use Unlockjunky on a MacBook, you have to download an additional third-party tool to mimic the Windows Operating System environment.
The best way to avoid the Unlockjunky cons mentioned above is to use an alternative FRP bypass tool that offers better results. The best Unlockjunky alternative is iMyFone LockWiper (Android) FRP Unlock Tool. It works with all the Android versions.
