Many people sell their old phones and get a new one. Tech experts suggest taking several precautions before selling the old phone to others. Before selling your old mobile, it is advised to completely delete the data in it, otherwise, there is a risk of problems later. Because even if the data is deleted on the phone, there is still some information. If we sell the phone without erasing any data then they will have access to our complete personal information. That is why precautions should be taken before selling the old mobile to others. Mobile experts suggest that a factory reset is a must when selling an old phone to someone. By doing this, all the data on our phone will be completely deleted and the settings that were there when we bought the phone will be there. This will keep your data completely safe. If the phone is not factory reset then your data details will be exposed. This increases the chances of cyber crimes and other problems. Some people don’t know how to factory reset a phone. If you know.. don’t think of resetting. Because we tend to think that the details are big. Let’s learn how to do a factory reset on your Android phone.
☛ First log out of your mobile accounts like WhatsApp, Twitter, MS Office, Instagram, Facebook, Google Account, and Gmail.
☛ For this, it is enough to go to accounts in the phone settings and log out from each account. Finally, log out from your Google account. Doing this will keep the details from your old phone out of sync.
☛ After that remove the microSD card and SIM cards from the mobile. Go to Settings and click on General Manager then click on the Reset section. There is an option called factory data to reset. If you click on it, all the data on your phone will be deleted and the phone will be reset.
☛ After this entire process is completed, if you turn on the phone, Android Welcome will appear on the screen. So the new users of your phone will not have any chance to know their details.
☛ Another thing is.. the factory reset process varies depending on the phone model. For example, on a Samsung phone, the factory data reset option is under General Management in Settings. On Xiaomi phones, go to About Phone in Settings and it will appear under the name Delete All (Factory Reset). On an iPhone, click on General in Settings and scroll down to find the Reset option. Open it and select Erase All Content and Settings. This is different in each phone.
