Your nude selfies can remain after Android factory reset
Avast has revealed that nudes and other intimate photos have been found on Android phones that users think they’ve already made clean, but it seems that the factory wipe function just stops your phone from showing where the data is stored – therefore, data is still retrievable by tools.
According to the source, it is suggested that the devices vulnerable to the security flaw are the phones running software older than Android 4.0. If you’re quite paranoid about the situation, than you should encrypt your data before doing the factory reset, so that just in case someone retrieves your data, it is unreadable.
