    Without the serial number the only option is to contact Samsung

    SAMSUNG did not know how to fix it neither! So my Note 5 is a paper weight at this point and to remind me not to buy new Samsung devices with new Android OS. Apparently when the device goes into Factory Reset Protection mode, you are SOL. So if anybody in this FORUM knows how to unblock it please public instructions. Thank you....

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you sure you're talking about the same issue as the OP of this thread? The "Custom Recovery blocked by FRP Lock" issue is different from factory resetting a phone without first properly removing the Google account. That has to be done in order for the reset to be considered authorized. Otherwise, Google's Factory Reset Protection will kick in, and after the reset is done, it will prompt the user to enter the previous Google account's name and password. This is meant to discourage thieves from stealing a phone and doing a simple factory reset to make it their own, but legitimate owners can also run into this problem if they buy the phone used from a private seller, and the seller didn't properly remove their Google account before doing the factory reset.
