How to recover Android data after factory reset?

There are many times when people factory reset their Android smartphone. Mostly they do it when their memory gets full, the device performance becomes slow due to too many apps, there is some malware related issue with the phone, or when people sell it or give it to someone.

The factory reset process is designed so that every time the user performs a reset, all data and settings are removed from the phone, thus returning the phone to the same condition it was in when it left the factory, thus giving existence in the term ‘factory reset’.

How to do a factory reset?

To do a reset, all one needs to do is go to the Settings section of their Android smartphone. From there, head over to System settings, where you’ll find the Advanced option. In the section, there is an option called reset, which you need to choose to perform a factory reset. Remember, always back up your important data like contacts, music, and other things you think are important before doing a factory reset.

Can data be recovered after a factory reset?

Yes, it should be known that Android data can be recovered even after reboot. This is a very important thing, because it could be helpful for people who lost something important, and it could be harmful for those who did a factory reset to protect their data.

There are various tools and software available with which you can extract the deleted data from your mobile phone. All you have to do is search for them on the Internet, download them and use them to extract deleted data from a mobile phone. It is a very simple process indeed.

Now the question is, can we still protect our data? The answer to that is also yes. You can still protect your data.

Let’s see how that can be done.

Built-in encryption of Android devices-

Before Android released its Marshmallow 6.0 operating system, Android phones did not come with encryption by default. One needed to install it before doing a factory reset so your data can’t be recovered directly.

But since the Marshmallow 6.0 update, the phone comes with an encryption that has already been enabled, which means that even if you recover your phone data, you will not be able to access it directly without going through the encryption.

Cloud Backup –

Cloud backup is another thing to keep in mind. Most phones these days sync some important data to Google Drive from where you can recover it to a new device or even an old one even after a factory reset by simply accessing your Google account.

However, there is no guarantee that cloud backups like Google Drive are completely secure. In fact, it is the exact opposite of insurance. There have been many cases of people’s cloud storage being hacked and their data stolen, so always remember to keep only unimportant data in your Google cloud storage.
