Keep Your and Your Clients’ Data Safe When You Upgrade Devices

When you buy a new phone or tablet, you want all the data and settings transferred from your old device to your new one. But don’t forget to properly delete the data on the old device before you give it to your child, donate it, or sell it.

For example, it’s not enough to remove the SIM card from your iPhone, delete your contacts, and log out of zipForm Mobile. You should erase the phone’s data and reset it to factory specs using the Apple-recommended process through iTunes.

The same advice applies to devices on other operating systems and computers: Use the processes detailed in the manufacturer’s support materials to remove all data. You can also contact a technical professional to assist you.
