There’s always a computer geek or even a script kiddie out there who, using tools and a bunch of utilities can recover your deleted data and expose all those embarrassing texts you were hiding.
There are a plethora of utilities in the Android ecosystem like Shredroid and CCleaner but until now, iOS has been lacking such tools (asides using jailbreak apps).
Wondershare SafeEraser is a desktop application which makes it possible for iOS device users to totally erase their devices without leaving a trace.
So whether you’re selling off your device on Ebay or just want to erase your data, Wondershare SafeEraser for iOS is so far the most efficient utility which completely removes all your unwanted data, making it impossible to recover.
Safe Eraser Review
Permanent File Deletion
Performing a factory reset does not erase all the data stored on the device. If you want to ensure previously deleted data is unrecoverable then this feature will allow you to see your undeleted files and makes sure that the files you previously deleted are unrecoverable. All erased data will be erased using the Mil-spec DOD 5220 – 22 M standard – the most secure erasing option
There are 3 different modes to delete data:
- Low (1 Pass): The method erases the data from your iOS device easily by quickly writing a single pass of zeros over your smartphone’s entire content.
- Medium (2 Passes): With this mode, there’s no clue left to even suggest you erased some data off the phone. All the existing data on your iOS device is completely overwritten by some random data.
- High (3 Passes): This is the most secure data erasure option which uses the Mil-spec DOD 5220 – 22 M standard for completely destroying the data. Even though it takes quite an amount of time to execute, it proves to be the best and not even the NSA can recover anything from your device.
