June 21, 2017 09:00 / Posted by Boey Wong

Hello all, I need to permanently erase my iPhone 5c, because I want to sell it and buy a new one. There are many private information stored in my phone even after I deleted them. Especially when I tried a data recovery program, I was totally surprised that it is able to restore my deleted contacts, photos, messages, etc. from my iPhone 5c! I am very worried about the new owner of my phone will recover my personal data with such programs.

It is really a disaster if such information is leaked out when you sell or give away your iPhone to someone else. You may have done something before selling iPhones like restoring it to factory settings or deleting contents one by one. However, no matter which way you choose, the deleted data can be recovered by professional data recovery tool.

To prevent it from happening, it’s highly recommended to use FoneEraser for iOS developed by FoneLab, Which is a powerful iPhone data eraser to completely erase iPhone and guarantees all the deleted data are 100% non-recoverable by any given software.
