    So my cousin dropped my Google Nexus 5 into water and it was in there for at least 15 minutes before I found it. I put it in rice immediately, but water has definitely seeped inside because there's a raised piece that broke off in the back. My dad wants to bring in into a repair store on Tuesday and see what they can do because it won't turn on. The problem is there's alot on my phone that I wouldn't want him to see, it's not anything illegal but he'd probably be less than happy if he sees how much porn his daughter watches...would the person repairing it be able to unlock my phone (it has a password) and would he tell my dad what he found? and would all my pictures and memory still be intact?

    Welcome to the forums! There's a big chance that your phone is beyond repair or it could be so expensive that getting a new one would be a better deal. If they manage to fix it everything will be deleted and you will manage to restore only the information that you previously stored on the cloud, your computer, etc. Tell us how it goes.

    Haha! Yeah, your password and the water damage are enough to keep your information safe. Thanks for registering!

    Read Oh, no! My Phone got Wet! if you want information. Fifteen minutes of water, then probably a few hours being kept wet in rice (rice will dry the phone out in days in the winter, and weeks, if at all, in a humid summer) will just about guarantee an unrepairable phone.
