What about the factory reset protection when selling a device?
If you reset the Galaxy S8 before you sell it (which you should always do), you must remove your Google account from the phone before you reset it.
This is because your Galaxy S8, by default, uses a Google feature called Factory Reset Protection, where a new user must sign in to the last Google account that was used on the phone. This prevents the thieves from stealing a phone, resetting it and using it as new. But it also prevents the buyers from being a new mobile phone, if they do not have you nearby to circumvent this protection.
