Recently, I received a letter from a HUAWEI user which intends to sell his HUAWEI phone to the secondary market, however, he was afraid that the phone's data was restored by others. In the event that these data are being used by criminals, the consequences are unimaginable. Therefore, he hoped that I could provide an effective measure to solve this problem.
If you want to completely delete the data from Huawei or other Android phone, you have to use the professional software to wipe it. And I recommend you to use the Android Data Eraser. It can help you to completely and permanently delete all the data and settings on any Android phones and tablets. Once you use the software, you will never be able to retrieve the deleted data even using the most professional data recovery tool. The software will not record and leak your phone data. It supports all available Android devices in the market. No matter you have Samsung, Huawei ,HTC, Sony, Motorola, Google Nexus, LG, or ZTE, etc..
Steps to Permanently Erase All Data and Settings from Huawei
Please free download the software on your computer. After installation and running, select "Data Eraser". Next, use the USB cable to connect your HUAWEI phone to your computer. In addition, you also need to open the USB debugging on your phone.
When the program recognizes your phone, the main interface is shown as follows. Please click "Erase All Data" to enter the next step. Then, the program will pop up a window, you need to enter "delete" to confirm and click "Erase Now" to start deleting the phone data.
Note: Before that, you'd better back up important data on Huawei phone to your computer because you won't be able to recover the data once you use it. You can also use the software in the "Data Backup & Restore" function to back up the phone file.
Step 3. When all data on the phone is permanently deleted, the program will ask you to tap on Fatory Data Reset or Erase All Data on the phone. This will help you completely delete all the settings on the phone.
When this process is complete, your phone will not have any files.
