Help Guides

Preparing Your Device for Sale to a Recommerce Company. This help guide outlines eight essential steps to secure and protect your data before selling your device to a recommerce company. Follow these steps to ensure your personal information remains confidential and your device is ready for resale.



Before starting the process, make sure to back up all of your important data, including photos, videos, documents, and other files. Use a cloud storage service, external hard drive, or another secure storage option.


Sign Out

Sign out of all your personal accounts, such as email, social media, and other online services. This will help prevent unauthorized access to your personal information after you sell your device.


Unlink Device

Unlink your device from any connected devices and services, such as Bluetooth speakers, smart home devices, or streaming accounts.


Remove Device Locks

Disable any security measures, such as fingerprint or face recognition, PIN, or passwords, to ensure that the new owner can access the device without issue.


Factory Reset

A factory reset will restore your device to its original settings, removing all personal data and applications. Consult your device's user manual for specific instructions on how to perform a factory reset.


Remove SIM & SD Cards

If your device has a SIM card or external SD card, make sure to remove them before selling. They contain personal info, and you'll want to retain them for use in your next device.


Sanitize your device

Physically clean your device by wiping it down with a micro fiber cloth and a solution specifically designed for electronics. Makes the re-sale value higher.

Verify your data is removed

After completing the previous steps, power on your device and double-check that all your personal information has been removed. If you're uncertain, repeat the factory reset process.
