    Was just wondering if anyone knew how secure the reformat we do on our BlackBerry 0S10 is? Granted it can half an hour till an hour to complete before the phone is back to zero, but any data showing the wipe is secure and the average guys at a phone shop won't be able to retrieve data from a blackberry?

    I know for a fact android is horrible for this as I've done it before and traces are all around even after wipes.

    Best in the industry - reason it takes so long is because it's not only wiping the data - but writing over it with null data. Zero chance of recovering data off of it.

    It's called a security wipe for a reason lol and there is a paper shredder on screen during process. I hope it's secure!

    ...and even if there were, the average guy in a shop or a second hand purchaser is not going to have the tools needed to even try "forensic recovery"
