iTunes(R) "Restores" Leave Behind Potentially Recoverable User Data; SafeEraser Securely Wipes the iPhone of All Personal Information; Meeting US Department of Defense Standards for Data Destruction
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity theft is on the rise as more people are using their iPhones for online shopping, making payments and even banking. Often times, identity theft can be traced to information recovered from mobile phones. When disposing of an old iPhone, many users will simply use iTunes to do a "restore" on the iPhone with the belief this erases everything, but the truth is in many cases personal data can still be retrieved using sophisticated data recovery technologies used by criminals. Wondershare's new SafeEraser gives users peace of mind by ensuring permanent removal of all personal information.
SafeEraser is a simple yet effective Windows® application, which permanently deletes all personal information by physically over-writing the iPhone's memory with random data and restores the iPhone to original factory setting while ensuring safety of the system and the device. Afterwards, there'll be no other data recovery tools that can recover any personal data from the device. Users can select fast 1-pass overwriting which overwrites the memory blocks 1-time, medium strength 2-pass overwriting, or maximum strength 3-pass overwriting which meets the US Department of Defense DOD 5220-22M standard for secure data destruction on digital devices.
Deeper dive on Wondershare SafeEraser's features:
- Peace of mind - 100% permanent data deletion with zero chance of recovery by hackers and identity thieves. Wipes out user names, passwords, photos, text messages, emails, call history…EVERYTHING stored on the iPhone;
- Works with all iPhone models running iOS version 5.0 and higher. Also works on all models of iPad® and iPod® Touch. Works on iPhones that have been jail-broken too;
- 3 modes for secure erasure: 1-pass (fastest, but least secure), 2-pass (slower but smarter deletion, other's won't know your phone was erased), and 3-pass which meets the US military standard for data destruction;
- Option for erasing an entire iPhone or just shred the free-space on the phone, a good safeguard to make sure deleted content stays deleted without having to wipe out the entire phone.
Wondershare SafeEraser is currently available for $19.95 for "one-time" use on a single iPhone, and $39.95 for use with up to five iPhones.
