Not only save data to another gadget: what must be done before selling your smartphone

Before selling your smartphone, usually the user must not only transfer all the necessary data to another gadget, but also protect yourself from the leakage of personal information, for example, passwords to bank cards, accounts, etc.

The easiest and most effective way — reset the phone to factory settings so that all personal data is completely deleted. This means that all your files, contacts, messages and other private information will be erased and cannot be recovered.

The second step you should take before selling is to deactivate all accounts that have been po&rsquo connected to your smartphone. These can be Google accounts, Apple accounts, social networks, email, etc. It's important to make sure you log out of all these accounts before resetting your phone to factory settings to avoid being able to access your personal data after the sale. It is unlikely that they will be available after a factory reset, but experts recommend to be safe.
