FRP (Factory Reset Protection)

What a coincidence, but our 14th episode of the ANTAD podcast, falls on the 14th day of December, 2019.In this episode, we kicked it off by talking about what to do when you want to pass down that phone of yours or if you want to sell it for some cash.We talked about the necessary steps that one needs to take prior to doing a "factory reset"--A necessary step to ensure that the person you are giving or selling the phone to, wouldn't be saddled with issues arising from "FRP" (Factory Reset Protection).Removing the account first before doing a "factory reset" is highly recommended if you intend to give away or sell the phone.We then moved on to the news of the week and this time, it has to do with something call "Resume upon reboot"--A new way of doing system OS updates that would change the way we are familiar with when it comes to updating the phone through OTA.I, Warren, then talked about a couple apps--FairMail, as a good alternative to GMail for those who are having issues with GMail.FairMail can be installed from the following Play URL:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.faircode.emailThe next app I "demoed" is a finance management app called "Bluecoins."This is suited for both small businesses or personal finance management.Bluecoins Is located at the following Play URL:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rammigsoftware.bluecoinsNimer closed the session with a "tip of the week" by demonstrating how to go about using the "settings" found in the apps that we have instead of going through the system Settings and then to the app in question.As always we encourage you to send your questions or concerns to our email address:antadpodcast@gmail.comand should you want to be part of the "ANTAD" mailing list, then send a "join request" to:antad+subscribe@googlegroups.com--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/anatadpodcast/message
