    If you are doing a Factory Reset when giving up your old phone, be sure to uncheck the box where it asks if you want to reinstall your data and settings.....this should give added security from someone else trying to access your Google account later.

    If you're doing a factory reset of a device in order to sell it you should be signing out of your account first. By doing that you ensure the purchaser can sign into it during setup after buying it from you. That reinstall data/settings box is during setup of the device if I recall..

    hallux, you have https:// in there twice so your link isn't working. It's https://www.androidcentral.com/facto...-you-need-know. (I just skimmed the article - it's not only correct, it has what you left out - removing your Google account(s) from the phone.)

    Thanks @Rukbat I fixed it. I was on my work PC and the heavy ad load on the article was bogging it down while I was trying to paste the link.

    I actually did suggest signing out of the Google account on the phone before resetting it...

    Not just signing out of it, deleting it from the phone.
