Make sure you set it up again, don't restore, delete your Google account then do a factory reset. Otherwise if you just do that, your phone will be stuck on Factory Reset Protection.SecretSauce wrote: ↑ 1. Enable encryption if it already wasn't done
2. Once encryption is complete, do a factory reset / secure wipe. This will remove everything on the physical memory.
3. Don't include the SD card unless you can encrypt it and also wipe it, probably on another device. I wouldn't trust formatting it to remove all traces of your data

I think most steps have been mentioned by others. But if you are like most of us with a lot of Whatsapp contacts/messages/video..., make sure you go to its setting/chats/chat backup and to a back up (video videos checked too) right away. All your Whatsapp contacts/messages/video ..will be backed up to google drive.

I suppose that's possible even though I don't think storing contacts in the SIM card is really done much anymore. You could take the SIM card out of it anyway. Reset it again and see if they pop up. As long as you didn't sign back in with your Google account, they shouldn't show up.

Ontario teen's photos, info ended up in someone else's hands after she traded in her broken iPhone
Stranger who bought 15-year-old's refurbished phone had access to her social media accounts
After shattering the screen of her iPhone, Natalie Hall thought the device was basically junk.
She never expected it to wind up 11,000 kilometres away, in the hands of a man who used it to add himself as her Facebook friend and to follow her private Instagram account.
But last week, a man messaged the 15-year-old on Facebook, saying he had bought her used phone in Dubai and the device still had all of her data on it. To prove it, he sent Hall a screengrab of her old phone's camera roll, commenting on the "sweet" photos of the teen, her friends and her dog.
Where possible save all data to MicroSD card (which means buy a phone with MicroSD card slot). When selling the phone, remove the MicroSD card.Ontario teen's photos, info ended up in someone else's hands after she traded in her broken iPhone
How to overwrite your phone data yourself
Step 1 - Go to your phone's settings and reset the device.
Step 2 - Download some large files, like videos.
Step 3 - Upload the large files to your phone.
Step 4 - Go to your phone's settings and reset the device again.

Her problem was she didn't reset the phone to erase the contents. She thought the phone was damaged enough that she didn't have to.
