SmartphoneTradeIn.com takes your security and privacy concerns very seriously. During the inspection process, we erase personal data on all devices through a factory reset. The factory reset process removes all personal data, including emails, texts, contacts and pictures, and restores the device to its original factory settings.
If you are more comfortable erasing the data yourself, the factory reset is surprisingly simple. Please follow our factory reset guide below. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help!
