Once you link a Google account on your phone, the FRP lock is automatically activated. It is an extra security feature that locks the device after performing a Factory Reset to prevent unwanted access. Although helpful, FRP can sometimes be a problem especially if the owner has forgotten the email and password used.
In this case, you need the help of an FRP bypass tool like the Google Account Manager app. But there are times when this app fails to work and the “Google Account Manager App Not Installed” error appears on the screen. But don’t worry, there are ways to fix that.
In this article, we listed some ways to fix the “Google Account Manager App Not Installed” error to successfully bypass the Google lock on your phone.
FYI: What is the Google Account Manager App
The Google Account Manager app is an FRP bypass tool. It is used to crack the Google verification page so you can access the phone without the need to enter the email and password.
This app can be downloaded for free and is compatible with phones with Android version 6.0 and higher. Once installed successfully, the Google Account Manager app is pretty easy to navigate.
To use the Google Account Manager App, you can directly download it to the phone once you have entered the settings.
How to Install the Google Account Manager App?
Before you can install the app on your phone, you first need to open the phone via the Talkback feature. The process is quite tricky, make sure to follow each step carefully. We used a Samsung phone in this example.

On the Startup screen, press the home button three times to turn on Talkback.
Draw an L on the screen to launch some options. From the options prompt, tap Talkback Settings < Help & Feedback.
Press the home button again 3 times to disable Talkback. Next, on the search bar, type in “About Switch Access” and hit Enter.
A browser will appear. After that type in type in “google.com” and on the Google search bar, look for the Google Account Manager app downloader.
Then proceed to install the app.
After this, you can then start bypassing the FRP via the Google Account Manager app.
