How to permanently delete your files of an Android and iOS phones

 How to permanently delete your files of an Android and iOS phones, so that they cannot be recovered again!

 When you delete a file, the reality is that the Android system never removes it from the storage memory. Instead, the system takes a backup copy of this file and tells you that the file that you deleted does not exist anymore. But deep inside the system files, the file that you copied or placed inside the memory and then deleted it is still located in the same place, and that until you copy or put another file in the same place specifically on the internal memory of your smart device. And we are not talking here only about an Android or iOS device, but any device with an operating system such as Windows or Mac, for example only.

How do deleted files recovery apps and programs work?

 As we mentioned previously, the system, whether it is Android, iOS, Windows, or whatever, keeps a backup copy of the deleted files and hides them inside the system files. This is how applications such as DiskDigger, DigDeep, or Dumpster use to recover deleted photos on Android. Or any programs to recover deleted files from the hard disk in general, and this is the concept through which such tools can recover your files deleted from the internal system files again. Certainly, this is considered a violation of privacy, or at least a risk in being able to retrieve extremely private files again, especially if you want to sell the phone, for example. So, Giuseppe Romano has created a great app that can solve this annoying problem.

Secure Eraser app

 The way the application works is simply that it writes random data or information instead of the file that you deleted from the phone on its empty storage capacity, which the system deceived us as empty, then after that the application deletes or removes this data that is created again, and so it is any An attempt to recover any file deleted from the phone is random files without meaning, which makes it impossible to access the original files on the phone memory after deleting them again.

 After completing the previous necessary steps, now start this process of final deletion of the contents of your Android device by clicking on the "Start" button, which you will find at the bottom of the screen. From here, the Secure Eraser application will start its function that we explained above, which is writing random information and data to fill the phone memory with files that are not important, and then delete them again to get rid of old photos and videos permanently.

 As a result, the phone system will warn you that the phone storage capacity is full, and may ask you to delete some files for the system to work. Do not worry, because this is completely normal, because the Secure Eraser application will remove all these files again after placing them when it is finished, and you will notice that the available storage capacity has become large at the end.

 The process of permanently deleting files from the system may take a long time, up to more than 60 minutes, depending on your phone's storage capacity, so try to do that at a time when you do not need the phone. But when the application finishes deleting files permanently, you can be sure that your old files will never be returned after deleting again.
