Erase all photos and Videos?


AC Question

Erase all photos and Videos.

I am selling my 2013 android. I did a factory reset without an SD card inside the phone. In other words, I removed the SD card from my android befor I did a factory reset. Then I did the factory reset without the SD card inside.
I was wondering if by doing this, I erased successfully all my photos and videos forever from the android. Thank you.

The recommended way from Google to fully wipe a phone us to first encrypt it, then do a reset. A reset without encryption could leave readable data on the device if you have the right recovery software.
