messagewiping clean an android phone
Posted by siousxiesue April 04, 10:42PM

I want to pass on my old android phone to a friend now I've upgraded (he is unemployed)

I can go through the phone and uninstall apps but what else to do to wipe it clean of any trace of me?

Be careful if you have confidential stuff - like a PC data is recoverable unless you wipe it (write over it).

Some sites just recommend you encrypt it to make any data recovery worthless or use a data eraser tool if you really want to be safe..
