After the new security update, the Samsung A11 Google account can not be bypassed without a computer. The FRP lock comes into effect when the phone is reset via recovery mode.
In this post, we are going to use the latest and quickest method to bypass Google Verification on Samsung A11 running on the latest update with the Security Patch level May 2021.
In a few minutes, you’ll be able to use your phone once again. So, let’s begin the procedure –
After doing the hard reset, the phone has landed on the “Let’s Go” screen of the setup wizard.
Tap the “Forward arrow” to proceed further.
Tick the respective checkboxes and hit next.
In the next step, we need to connect to the internet. Connect to a Wifi network and click “Next”.
It’s checking for updates. We need to wait for a while.

I don’t remember the lock screen password. There is an alternate option – “Use my Google Account Instead”. Let’s select this option.
We are now on the Google Verification page. It’s asking to verify with the previously synced Google account on this device.
Let’s use the latest hack to get past this FRP lock screen on our Samsung A11 –
