Following are some of the key things you need to do if you are planning to sell your phone and purchase a new one-

1. Before selling the phone, make sure that you have logged out from each and every social media app like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Just logging out won’t help. Once you are logged out then visit the settings in your phone and click at the factory reset option. This will delete all the data.

2. Always make a back-up data before you decide to sell or change your old phone. This will never leak your data.
Don’t forget to make a back-up in Google Drive as well.

3. Log out from the Google account before you sell your phone.

4. Remove and delete each and every saved password from your phone before you decide to sell it.
