    Hello, I'm going to sell my old Samsung Galaxy S5, I'm scared somebody will recover my private inforamtion! I heard Factory reset doesn't completely erase dat from Android phone, is this true? If so, how can I earse my Android data without recovery?

    Be sure to unmount and remove your SD card first (if you have one). Then encrypt it, then factory reset. No chance of anyone getting your data.

    It seems that factory reset can wipe your Android data, did you try it?
