According to a study of Cambridge, resetting your phone doesn’t completely erase your personal data. Someone could retrieve all the wiped data from a second-hand device you sold him/her reported. Such data can be recovered even from handsets protected by full-disk encryption, the researchers said.

So, are you selling your old phone? Beware, your personal data could be leaked too!
