    I would like to disable the factory data reset on the phone.
    As it stands, If you tap the factory data reset all safe guards I placed on the phone are deleted.
    I would like to turn off the factory reset so it does not happen in the future.

    Do you have a screenlock security PIN? Are other people able to access your phone? Do you feel a compulsion to tap the Reset buttons? https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=409154

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you concerned about someone fooling around with your phone and resetting it without your permission? The best way to prevent that is to make sure you have a strong screen lock set up (i.e., one that isn't easy to guess), with it set to lock automatically as soon as the screen is off).

    If your phone doesn't have a native way to lock out the reset option, I'm not sure if there's a way to add it without rooting.
