    Hello guys,

    I'm new to Crackberry.

    Does anyone here know How to Permanently and Completely Wipe Data in Blackberry OS 5 and OS 10,
    so that no one will be able to extract or recover deleted/'wiped' data ?

    As you know, in the PC, deleted or formatted data can still be recovered unless we use software like KillDisk
    to completely delete the data. So, Is there a software in Blackberry to do that?
    Or does the default Wipe feature in BB already do that?

    Also, can anyone recommend a software to extract deleted data in Blackberry?

    Hi and welcome to CrackBerry!!
    As far as I know, the only have to delete data from your BB is to wipe. It is destructive as there is nothing left after you do it.
    And as for a recovery app, nope on that either. Unless you are storing mission critical data, I would not think there would be anything to use. The business world may have something for their employees to use in Balance, but as for the rest of us, I doubt it.

    The built-in security wipe should clear the data with no real prospect of recovery, it is good enough for US government data protection standards. However, remember it doesn't touch the SD card, you need to handle that yourself.

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies
    Since you guys are the moderators, do you mind moving my thread to the Blackberry OS > Tips and How to ?
    I just realized that's the most appropriate forum to ask this.
