    Hey, Thanks for posting.

    Yes, it is possible. Please navigate to Android->Advanced Restrictions->Factory reset protection. From the drop-down list beneath the ‘Factory reset protection’, choose the ‘Disable factory reset protection’ option to skip the Google account verification step.
    You will also be able to see the ‘Bypass Factory Reset Protection’ option which will enforce the google account verification step, where you can use the added Google account ID or G Suite accounts, instead of the previously set Google account.

    Kindly use the help link for a reference.
