Exclamation Safer Computing: 08/09/2016

A few tips as provided by PC Magazine:

1. Back up everything on your device. Backing up your information will allow you to save and upload your data onto your new iPhone 7. It will also give you the peace of mind to erase your phone's information lest someone else come across it. If you want to back up your iTunes directly to your computer, for example, simply plug in your iPhone to your computer and click File > Devices > Backup. Alternatively, you can back up directly from your iPhone by going to Settings > General > iCloud > Backup > Back Up Now. (iCloud Backups must be toggled to the "on" position.)

2. Un-Find your phone. If Find Your Phone is enabled, a new owner might not be able to activate your iPhone. Make sure this feature is disabled so that everyone can use their new phone without a hitch.

3. Sign out of iMessage. In the past, some Apple users experienced trouble receiving text messages when they upgraded their iPhones. Make sure this doesn't happen to you by signing out of iMessage on your old device.

4. Eject the SIM card. The SIM card stores a lot of information about you, including your phone number, security settings, and other pieces of information. Don't leave this component behind in your old phone! Before you upgrade, make sure you eject it so that you can transfer it to your new phone, store it in a safe place, or destroy it.

Re: Safer Computing: 08/09/2016

OR if getting rid of ex hardware you can follow the military spec way of doing it

Sledgehammer
Burn memory
recycle the resulting components

BTW - not easy with an iphone as you can't remove the Lithium battery so it would be dangerous, but its not far off what we do with computers at work



Regards
Andy

Re: Safer Computing: 08/09/2016

Can't argue with the big hammer approach but I think these day's, given the dosh outlay, many will trade-in, pass them on to other family members or*charities. Another option, sell them on via the internet.

*It's a very sad world when your good intentions can land you in deep sticky brown stuff.
