Wondershare SafeEraser aims to solve one of the problems faced by users of portable devices: permanent file removal. The issue is that when you delete a file on a device, you´re only making it more difficult to find because the actual data will be kept. Unfortunately, the problem gets even worse as there aren’t many applications to help you erase unused files beyond recovery on iOS and Android. And this is why an application like Wondershare SafeEraser always comes in handy.
The application is extremely easy-to-use, and triggering its main functions is only one click away after you connect your device via a USB cable. If you pick the “Erase All Data” option, all the information you have been storing on the device will simply disappear. However, by clicking on the “Erase Private Data” button, you will have an opportunity to choose what to keep. Finally, “Erase Deleted Data” can help you get rid of whatever remaining information after supposedly having erased the files from within the operating system. Moreover, the utility lets you back up photos to your PC before you completely wipe them from your phone.
As to erasing procedures, they’re said to be very effective. As a matter of fact, you can select any of three different wiping algorithms. Level 1 consists on overwriting data with zeros; level 2, in turn, uses junk files to overwrite the old data; finally, level 3 erases with the same algorithms used by the U.S. military.
As we have seen, Wondershare SafeEraser can safeguard your privacy if you decide to resell or give away your portable device. However, it can also optimize your system by freeing memory space as well as erasing cache data, which has a major positive effect on performance. In general, it is an application I particularly recommend. Just a tiny piece of advice: before buying the product, you’d better check what features are available for your device’s operating system.
