    Welcome to Android Central! Factory Reset Protection is standard on all Android, starting with Lollipop. It's intended to prevent thieves from stealing a phone and doing a simple factory reset to make it their own. It requires the previous owner to properly remove their Google account before the factory reset; if they don't, then once the phone is reset, that previous Google account information has to be entered correctly to proceed.

    Are you able to contact the previous owner? That's the first thing to try. We discourage discussing methods that try to bypass a phone's security here, since that can be used by others for more nefarious reasons.

    Mod note. B. Diddy said it all, there's no way to bypass this security feature and you need to contact the original owner.
