Back to top ↑

On BlackBerry devices powered by Android, Factory Reset Protection (FRP) is enabled by default to reduce the value of a stolen device. This feature prevents the use of a BlackBerry device powered by Android unless authorized by the known user.

Once you sign in with a Google account, FRP is enabled. Once enabled, only users who have reset their device via Settings > Backup & reset > Factory data reset may proceed through the setup wizard without being prompted to enter the Google login information that was previously used on the device before resetting. This form of reset is the only reset flow that is considered trusted.

During the setup wizard users are prompted and encouraged to protect the device by setting the lock screen during the setup wizard. This action secures the lock screen to block unauthorized use of the device and the factory reset option within the Settings menu.

All other resets methods are considered untrusted and will result in a request for Google login information. Once you select a language and enable network connectivity Wi-Fi, you are prompted to enter a previously used Google account and password to continue.

For assistance with managing your Google account such as resetting your password access the Google My Account page.
NOTE: If you reset or change your Google account password, you need to wait 24 hours from the time of the password reset/change before using the Google account to set up your device.

The following provides an overview of Trusted and Untrusted reset flows.

Note: This is the only reset flow that is considered trusted

Review the on-screen details and tap ERASE EVERYTHING.

Note: Any untrusted reset flow will result in a request to enter a previously used Google account and password to continue.

Factory Reset after 10 failed unlock attempts.​ NOTE: The 10 failed unlock attempts applies to all screen lock methods such as Password or Picture
Completing a de-brick reload of the OS.
