Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on the Sprint network should be receiving an OS update starting today. The OTA, the first since February, adds Lollipop’s factory reset protection feature. The feature is supposed to deter theft and give you recourse in case it does happen. It debuted with 5.0 Lollipop, but Samsung’s customizations to the OS originally left it out.
If anyone tries to factory reset your device when the protection is enabled, the device owner’s Google account credentials are required to carry out the job.
