How to Erase data from android smartphone permanently

Best Way to Erase Data from Android Smartphone Before Selling It



Android Smartphone is all fun due to the vast freedom we enjoy in it, It is easy to use and having a wide range of features.But the most important thing is that our smartphones have become the secret keepers of our personal and professional life. Whether it be personal photos, videos, contacts, financial information or business emails and files, you cannot risk losing any information to an outsider at any cost. So if you want to sell your old device as you are interested in buying a new one, or probably exchanging a better one. Then before giving away your phone, it is a must that you remove all the accounts, passwords, and all the user data. Performing only a factory reset on the phone might be a good idea to solving some of the problems but not a foolproof one as information saved in your phone can still be traced and sometimes recovered if the other person is having some technical knowledge.

So today in this post, I am sharing the best way to Erase all the data from your Android Smartphone that can't be recovered.

  • How to Permanently Erase All the data from your Android Smartphone:-

  1. Make a Backup first
    1. Open Settings and tap on Backup & reset.If you didn't see the option you have to backup all the data manually to the Computer with the help of data cable.If you found, then move to the next step.
    2. You should see an option called Backup my data. Make sure that it's ticked.
    3. Now go Back, and then find Accounts. Tap on Google.
    4. You'll see your Google account which was used to set up the phone with a green sync symbol next to it. Tap the account.
    5. Make sure that all the options are ticked, All of the data from the smartphone will be backed up automatically to the Google+ account.
  2. Encrypt ( Optional)
    1.  This takes a long time, So First you need to connect your phone to the charger to proceed.
    2. Go to Settings > Security and tap Encrypt phone.
    3. Tap Encrypt phone again to proceed (You might need to try it a few times.).The process can take an hour, and so you'll have to wait.
    4. Once this is done, just reset the phone.
  3. Format

    1. With Setting app
      1. Open your device's Settings app.
      2. Under "Personal," tap Backup & reset. You may need to enter your pattern, PIN, or password.
      3. Under "Personal data," tap Factory data reset.
      4. Read the information and then tap Reset phone.
      5. If you have a screen lock, you'll need to enter your pattern, PIN, or password.
      6. When prompted, tap Erase everything to erase all data from your device's internal storage.
      7. When your device finishes erasing, select the option to restart your device.
      8. You'll see the "Welcome" screen as you did when you turned on your device for the first time.

    2. With Recovery Mode
      1. "Go to" or "Boot in" Recovery mode.
      2. Press the Power Button to start recovery mode.
      3. When your phone reloads, you should see a screen that says "No command" with an android robot in distress. Press and hold the power button, then press the volume up button once to load up the reboot menu.
      4. Using the Volume buttons to scroll through the menu, highlight Wipe data/factory reset.
      5. Press the Power button to select.
      6. Highlight and select Yes to confirm the reset.
      7. Once the reset is complete, you will be bounced back to the same recovery mode menu. Press the Power button to select Reboot system now.
  4. Applying a simple trick
Encrypting the device and then performing a factory reset is generally enough to erase all the data securely, but doing a bit extra doesn't hurt. To do this,

  1. Set up the smartphone after factory resetting it. 
  2. This time, make sure no email details or personal details are added.
  3. Once the setup is complete, Just fill the whole memory with junk files and media.
  4. And then Format Again.
We are suggesting you because this will overwrite the free space with junk data. so if someone tries to recover data he will only get these junk files and media.
If you feel uncomfortable with these steps then a software also can do this for you but it is not free, here it is.

Only some are able to rise above the others. Every app made to excel in its respective category and with every passing moment the challenge to succeed rises by a notch.
The Business Communication App category has not been much in news. There was a rising importance of corporate apps for informal communication so that the communication gaps could be bridged.

There are a few trying to rise above the others, make a mark and be among the top apps for the category.
A challenge to survive in the market existed for such apps as organizations believed in communicating on social networks which were free of cost. Such organizations were soon brought face the bitter truth a bit late. There was a downside to the free stuff, they weren’t designed to meet their needs; not only there wasn’t an effective flow of information but also there was a threat to security. There was a chance that the organizations would fall prey to corporate espionage or information leakages.

Among the plethora of business communication apps, there is one app swiftly making it to the top; ChatOnGo for Business. The app perfectly fills the gap that was there in the market, for communicating and for security. This business communication app brings organizations exactly what they need!

The communication believes in adapting to the demands varying with every industry. In addition to this, they are continuously innovating to add more features to the app to address increasing demand for new features.

The app certainly seems to show promise but the question still remains. Will ChatOnGo for Business rise above all and shake the market for business communication apps?

  • Hide IP or Change IP in Android Smartphone

Set a Static IP when you are on wifi: - To set a static IP address in the Android operating system, please follow these steps:.

Choose a VPN


Best thing to change or hide ip would be to get a VPN.But you have to be careful when you are getting one.Yo have an option to get a free one or a paid one. Free VPNs do not protect your online privacy because firstly there services are not really free as they allow third-party advertisers and companies to access your information. This is how they make their money.
Some of them are 
Betternet
Hide my ass Free
Hotspot shield,

I would suggest going for a paid VPN as they can protect you better. Many of them occasionally come out with good discount offers that are easy on the wallet. Just check out VPNs like 
BetterNet Premium,
PureVPN,
Hidemyass pro
etc as they come with good offers often.

Hide your IP Address with Web Proxies 


A Web Proxy is a Simple and easy to use the method to hide ip.It is a website that allows you to visit other websites through it. The way it works is the web proxy website has a textbox. In the textbox, you have to enter the URL of the website you wish to visit. The web proxy displays that website within a frame that fills most of the entire page. Any links you click within the website you are visiting will also be displayed within the web proxies frame. This way the websites you visit think it is the web proxy website that is doing the visiting and not you. Some of the web proxies are as following:-

Just search Free Web Proxies or Proxy Site on the search engine and you will find many of these sites.Most web proxies display advertising at the top part of the web pages. Some web proxies are very obnoxious about this.
