Without any doubt, Android Devices are the most popular devices among any other devices in the world. The numbers of the Android user are increasing in great number day by day. With increase in the Android device and the users, there comes many issue related to the devices also. If you have forgotten password of the device or changed some of the settings which went wrong or even some error/lagging in the device due to any reason? Now you don’t have to worry. Factory Resetting your Android can easily solve the problem. You can Factory Reset your Android Device in two ways, either using Setting menu or using Recovery mode.
Factory Reset, also called master reset. Basically what it does is wipes out everything on your phone and reverts back to the factory defaults like the way it was the day you got your phone. This helps ensure any software problems you might be having unresolved and also helps determine whether or not the issues are having on hardware or software. Factory Reset erase all installed application, account and their password, software and other data that is stored in the internal (phone) memory. Also keep in mind that performing Factory Reset won’t affect anything on the SD card.
Note: I recommend you to backup your Android Data before factory reset.
This is the first method to Factory Reset your Android Phone. This method is used only if you have access to your phone (i.e Your phone is not locked). Follow the given steps to Factory Reset your Device (Using Setting Menu).
Your phone system will be as if you have just brought it because all the setting and stuff like that you need to set again.
Key Note: If you have device that is running on Android 5.1 or higher. You will need to enter a previous/ old (if any) Google username and password associated with the device just after factory reset. If you don’t have the information, you won’t be able to complete setup process and use the device at all after factory reset.
