A MUST TO READ: Before You Sell Old Phone Or Give It Out, Do This

Posted by on January 10, 2020 0


Have you considered the danger of selling or giving out your old phones? Even if you reset to factory settings or flash it, your data can be still be easily recovered.

The Danger

Scary right? Scarier that the programs needed to recover such information are available in public domain and are mostly free of charge.

A scammer might use them.
A person might blackmail you with your past.
Your marriage or relationship might crash just because you disposed your old phones.
Your past might really hunt you so you need to be careful.
Is the situation completely helpless? No

What To Do Before Selling Your Old Phone or Give Out!

In the past, Factory Reset was enough to keep you safe, if you disposed your phone. Sadly It’s No More. Before you dispose your phone now, Encrypt It.

Go to your phone’s Setting > Security > Phone Encryption > Then clear all credentials and all informations.

NOTE: Please make sure that your battery is charged and that the phone is plugged into a power supply while the encryption takes place. It will take about an hour to complete, all things being equal.

Reset to Factory Settings after the encryption. Then you’re free to sell. When the phone is encrypted, it will be near impossible to view information gleaned from it via recovery.

Never forget, encrypt your phone before you can sell it to avoid stories that touch. Better be safe than sorry.

What do you think. Do you feel you should be concerned about the phones you have disposed wrongly in the past?
