    My Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile recently dropped from my pocket and it got some scratches including Power Button not working as well as Volume Button is stuck inside.
    Since I have a Warranty period and I want to submit it to the authorized repair center, but I am little bit worried about my Data Privacy and Security.
    My phone does have sensitive information, includes added E-Mail Accounts, linked with some important social accounts like Facebook, Twitter and other services etc.

    So, is there a way to Secure my data within the Phone or how can I make sure that when it is submitted to repair center they will not have an access to my private data?

    Backup then System Wipe, or have the expectation that the tech would have access to anything on the phone. I seriously doubt that anyone in any decent repair facility would have either the time or the intent to poke around other than to fix it and move on to the next job.

    Do you have any recommendations for good and single app which could backup and restore most of the phone data?
    Free would be good but I don't mind for the Paid one as well.
