Android 5.1 Lolipop added the activation lock which aims to prevent your personal data including photos, text messages, photos & credit cards information from unwanted access. When you add a Google account to your device, the FRP lock is automatically activated.

After hard resetting, the lock is triggered and the device will ask for a Google account that was previously synced with the device.
