Need advice on how to wipe Android phone clean

Recommended Posts

I just did a test on my HTC One M9 and found out the data is still accessible after factory reset. I am wondering what is the secure way to delete all data from Android phone so the next owner could't get private information from it?

Don't think the factory reset will completely erase your data on Android phone, the data still be recoverable by some data recovery..

If you really want to wipe it all out then there are 2 ways to do it, 1st is by going to the settings of your phone then look for factory reset option and 2nd one is by doing a hard reset. Try searching google on how to hard reset your phone.
