How does Factory Reset Protection work on Android?

Is this Android’s version of Apple’s activation lock? If so, what do I need to do differently when setting up a new Android device or selling an old one that has Factory Reset Protection?
Factory reset protection ensures that if your device is lost or stolen, it can't be wiped and re-setup for someone else to use without you putting in some information. This is achieved by putting a lock screen on your device and syncing it with a Google account. When selling the device, you'll need to remove your Google account from it. Take a look at the site for detailed information.
