How to Remove FRP Lock on MediaTek using Scatter File and SP Flash Tool

In this guide, we will show you the steps to remove the FRP Lock on your MediaTek device using the Android Scatter file and SP Flash Tool. Factory Reset Protection is one of the most stringent privacy measures that is always up for debate. For the unawares, the FRP gets enabled as soon as you sign in with a Google ID.  Then the next time you perform a reset, you would only be able to access the device after logging in with the same Google account that was earlier signed in.

The benefit of this lock is the fact that it prevents unauthorized or illegal usage of your device, such as in cases where it gets stolen. On the flip side though, in some instances, even the rightful owner tends to forget the ID and Password of their Google account. This situation gets worsened in cases where a user has purchased a second-hand device.

In those cases, you would have to track back the original owner, ask for his Google account credentials, which is easier said than done. Owing to these issues, many users are looking to bypass this lock. If you are on the same page, then this guide is here to help you out. Given here are the detailed instructions to remove the FRP Lock on your MediaTek device using the Android Scatter file and SP Flash Tool.
