Go to the ‘Settings’ tab
Almost all android phones have the reset option in the settings tab. You need to go to the menu of your respective android phone and look for the ‘Settings’ tab. Once you find it, press the tab to explore more options in it.
Select the ‘Privacy’ tab
Most Android phones have the reset option in the privacy tab in the ‘Settings’ menu. However, there are some phones that have the respective option in ‘SD and phone storage’. You need to check both tabs to find the reset option.
Select ‘Factory data reset’ to erase data
Once you find the ‘Factory data reset’ option, select it to erase the data from your phone. It is recommended that you check your phone thoroughly before that to look for any important files that you may need in the future as once the phone is reset; you cannot recover any of the files from your phone. A good way is to use your phone’s data cable and store the important data in your computer, laptop or in a USB.
Select ‘Reset phone’ option
When you press the ‘Factory data reset’, an option of ‘Reset phone’ will appear on your screen. This will remove everything from your phone including the Google account settings that you were using, the data in your SD card and all the other data on your phone. After pressing ‘Reset phone’, you need to press the ‘Erase everything’ tab and your phone will be back to the usual factory settings.
