    Rootjunky has discovered a method for bypassing factory reset protection on the Android N developer preview. This is surprising as Tom worked with Google directly to show them how he got past FRP. The method used to get past FRP in Android N is kind of crazy.

    More than likely you won't have to worry about someone hacking into your device this way, it really just wouldn't be worth the trouble. I'd also like to see someone try and replicate Tom's method. It is extremely tedious. Still it is kind of concerning that if some really wanted to they could still get past FRP and reset your device making it their own.
