What to do when changing a new phone?

These steps will help users not to have their information leaked when switching to a new phone.

Today's users often like to change phones to experience many new and interesting features. However, if you want to sell your current smartphone to "upgrade" another device, you should not ignore a few notes to protect personal information as well as make using a new phone more convenient.

Back up all data

With a wide range of online storage services today, you only need to perform a few steps to back up all your personal information.

According to Gizmodo, users need to check all the important apps on their phone and make sure everything is stored in the cloud or other devices.

Specifically, with image files, you can use Apple Photos, Google Photos or Dropbox for backup. With applications to watch movies and listen to music, you should check the downloaded file to make sure you have not missed data.

The two operating systems iOS and Android also have backup services available in the device for the convenience of users. So you just need to use these applications and choose which files to store.

Set up two-factor authentication

Using 2-factor authentication means that strangers can't log into your account even if they know your username and password. However, this security method can cause many problems in the process of changing phones.

Therefore, users need to set up this feature on their new phone to be able to access their social media or email accounts.

Log out all accounts

This is not required, but users should still sign out or disable apps on their old device. This will make it easier to use your new phone.

Some apps limit the number of devices you can use for an account. Meanwhile, paid apps will limit the number of app downloads. Therefore, users should uninstall apps before downloading on new phones.

Gizmodo also notes that before signing out of any account, users should remember all their passwords or use a password manager to easily sign back in on a new device.

Message Archive

Private conversations and messages are important data in the process of using electronic devices by people. Therefore, users should not skip the step of storing messages before switching to a new phone.

According to Gizmodo, apps like Twitter, Messenger or Google Chat will automatically back up to the cloud service. Meanwhile, with Apple iMessage, all conversations will be synced right on iCloud.

Each application will have a different way of storing it, but users should check to make sure they have backed up at the latest time to not lose data.

Restore factory settings

Ultimately, it's best to run a factory reset to erase all data from your device and return it to its original state when it was sold on the market. You should only do this after you have checked and backed up all the files as in the steps above.

Factory reset also means that no one will be able to log into your account or access your data because all files and applications have been wiped. This setting will make saved networks, browsing history or pictures and videos completely disappear from smartphone memory.

With Android, users can run this program by going to “Settings” > “System” > “Reset”, then select “Erase all data” (Erase) all data). With iOS, users go to "Settings" > "General" > "Reset" (Transfer or Reset iPhone) and select "Erase All Content and Settings" (Erase All Content) and Settings) to finish.

Data backup

Backing up your data is the most important thing you have to do first. You need to back up photos, videos, phone contacts, sms,...

And don't worry about seeing too much data to do. Because in most Android phones there is a built-in Google account, which makes backing up extremely convenient.

You go to Settings> Google> click Backup, all data will be stored directly on your Google account. And you can easily check with your laptop or computer.

Photos and videos will be backed up and synced in Google Photos.

The phone book will also be fully stored on Google Contacts.

The data files will be transferred to Google Drive.

Transfer data from old phone to new phone

There are quite a few ways you can transfer data from your old Android phone to your new one. The simplest and easiest way to do this is to use a Google account.

Once you've backed up everything to your Google account, when you sign in to a new phone, you'll be asked if you want to perform a data restore. If so, any backed up data will automatically set up on the new phone.

To transfer data between Samsung phones, you can use Smart Switch. On OnePlus, the OnePlus Switch app will help you perform the data transfer.

Or if you don't like the above methods, you can choose MobileTrans 1-Click - a tool to help transfer data between phones via laptop or computer with just a few mouse clicks.

Sign out of Google account

After you have fully transferred the data to the new phone, the next thing to do is to sign out of your Google account.

Partly to secure your account information, secondly, if you do not log out, the new owner when receiving your phone may not be able to activate it, because it has been locked by the Google account password.

To sign out of your Google account, go to Settings > select Google Account > Remove account from device.

Restore factory settings

Once you have completed the steps of backing up, transferring data, and signing out of your Google account, you need to reset the phone to factory settings.

This will erase everything in the phone, and return the software to an unused state. This way, when the new owner picks up the phone, they'll set it up from scratch, just like any new phone.

To do a factory reset, go to Settings > System > Advanced > Reset and select Erase all data.

To do a factory reset, go to Settings > System > Advanced > Reset and select Erase all data

Remove the memory card and SIM

The next job is that you need to remove the memory card (if any) and SIM from your Android phone.

And this is also an opportunity for you to clean your small SIM after years and months of use. Use a soft damp cloth to clean the SIM and memory card. At the same time, you should check the accompanying accessories, phone box, invoice to prepare to transfer to the new owner.

Clean the device

After you have finished cleaning up the data inside, the last thing is to clean the phone.

You may not be able to remove a few scratches on the screen, but at least you can still clean the fingerprints on the screen so that it is clean.
