Many US states and other jurisdictions now allow an officer of the law to sieze your cellphone or other mobile device and examine it for recent usage. Having the comfort of knowing you can quickly wipe the history from any android device will make you rest easier if you’re pulled over for using a mobile device in a jurisdiction where use of a mobile device while driving is disallowed, or in the unfortunate event of an accident.
Just pre-set which services to wipe, and how much history to remove from your Android phone or other device, and then it’s simply one click to remove the history when you need to.
In our continued effort to make this work with KitKat, we have had mixed results. So, if you are running KitKat, it may or may not work for you until I get time to investigate the issues with some phones. But, it's a free app with no ads and works for most people.
Please provide feedback to the developer rather than giving a low rating so that I can fix whatever is wrong. Also feel free to suggest improvements. Thank you.
It is possible to forensically extract information from a smart phone using mobile forensic tools such as Cellebrite and XRY even after it has been deleted. This utility can help to prevent that from happening by sanitizing the free space on a phone. Similar functionality can be found on desktop machines using utilities like CCleaner, Eraser, and File Shredder. If you are afraid of the government peeking at your phone and extracting and reconstructing deleted files, this is the app that you want.
This application does not delete files or clean the cache. Use other tools such as ES File Explorer and AVG Cleaner to delete files and clean the cache. Then use this utility to sanitize the free space. The free version of this application does not sanitize database areas such as contacts, phone logs, or SMS text messages. Look for a pro version in the future that may perform a more thorough sanitization.
Although we cannot guarantee that all free space will be sanitized, this application finds all of the free space that Android will give us in three primary areas where data is normally stored and overwrites it as completely as the phone will allow:
1. System - This is the protected data area shared by all applications.
2. SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and on others it is emulated SD Card space.
3. Optional SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and many other phones do not have this space. Samsung phones typically put the real external SD Card here.
To run the application:
1. Make sure that the phone has good battery/wall power.
2. Put a checkmark next to the sections of memory to sanitize.
3. Press the Start Wiping button.
4. Do not use the phone while the application is working.
The status area will indicate how the process is going.
Some have complained that after a wipe, they sometimes still see old files that were deleted using Hexamob or other similar apps. In my investigation I have found that the overwhelming majority of files are overwritten but occassionally one file is left intact. This could occur if Android does not allow us to write to every free sector. Watch the statistics as it is overwriting to see if the free space count goes to 0 as it is writing. Also run the app more than once to get more thorough wiping since SD cards rotate their sectors in and out of service.
Many SD cards rotate blocks of memory in and out of use for wear leveling. As a result, it is possible that after sanitizing memory there could be some blocks that get rotated back in to use that were never sanitized. To mitigate this possibility, run this application twice which statistically will usually hit all blocks of memory.
This application has not been tested on all phones. Please provide feedback to the developer about any problems. It has been found to work on Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4 and Victory phones, the HTC Arrive and others. System space takes several minutes to sanitize and 8GB SD Cards can take up to half an hour. If the application is aborted before it finishes, there may be large files left on the phone. If this happens, simply reboot the phone and bring the application up and it will automatically look for these files and delete them at startup.

무료전환에 따른 안내 드립니다. 유료로 구매 하신 분들에 한하여 새놈스로 메일(firstname.lastname@example.org) 보내 주시면 사용 하던 스마트폰을 매각&판매 시 쉽고(초기화 후 구글계정 로그인 없이) 완벽하게 완전삭제 할 수 있는 PC버전 소프트웨어를 보내드리겠습니다. 이용해 주셔서 감사합니다.
제조사(삼성, LG, 팬택, 모토로라, TAKE, HTC, 소니)의 중고 스마트폰 40여 대를 구입, "고려대학교 정보보호대학원 디지털연구센터"에 의뢰하여 검증 확인하였습니다.
LG (F240L/, F120K) / 삼성 (SHW-M110S/안드로이드 2.3.6버전)를 제외한 나머지 기종들은 완전삭제가 정상적으로 동작 하고 것으로 나왔습니다. 3가지 기종은 "Complete Wipe"가 기기에서 정상적으로 동작하지 못하는 것인지, 기기의 오류인지 파악 중에 있으며, 업데이트가 완료 되는데로 공지하도록 하겠습니다.
새놈스에서 "스마트폰 40여 대를 중고 업체에서 구입한 후, 검증 하기 전 남겨진 데이터를 확인해 보았습니다.
얼마 전 해외 업체의 기사(중고 스마트폰 20대에서 사진 4만 여장 복구 관련기사) 궁금하기도 했습니다. 확인 결과 우리는 복구프로그램을 사용하지 않은 상태에서도 개인의 민감한 사진, 주민등록사진, 계좌번호, 심지어는 은행 보안 카드 사진까지도 그대로 남겨져 있었습니다" (남아 있던 모든 데이터는 완벽하게 완전삭제 처리했습니다.)
"소중한 개인정보, 다른 사람이 지켜주지 않습니다" Complete Wipe를 무료로 전환하게 된 큰 이유입니다.
- 컴플릿와이프 소개 -
스마트폰는 데이터는 삭제하거나 초기화 하여도 물리적으로 기록된 데이터는 남아있습니다.
인터넷 또는 플레이스토어에서 구할 수 있는 복원프로그램을 이용, 삭제한 데이터를 복원 및 재생하기도 합니다.
삭제한 사진.동영상, 음성파일, 은행계좌나 카드정보, 비즈니스와 관련(영업. 기술. 고객)한 데이터(문서파일)를 복원. 재생 한다면 피해를 불러 올 수도 있습니다.
(스마트폰 속에 신분증 사본이나 인증서 등을 보관하셨다면 이를 이용하여 대출도 가능합니다.)
평소처럼 파일 데이터를 삭제 - "Complete Wipe"를 실행 - 데이터 복원. 재생이 불가능한 완전삭제
완전삭제 시간은 메모리 크기와 기종에 따라(30분~90분 소요) 다릅니다.
스마트폰 사용이 불편하다면, 예약 설정 기능으로 새벽 시간에 설정하여 사용하시면 편리합니다.
1. 사진, 문서, 동영상 및 기타 파일을 사진첩 또는 파일관리자에서 일반적인 방법으로 삭제합니다.
2. "Complete Wipe"의 즉시 실행 기능을 통해 완전삭제를 수행합니다. (완료 후 알림메세지)
(삭제된 데이터만 완전삭제 하며, 남아있는 데이터는 삭제되지 않습니다.)
3. 이제 완전삭제된 사진, 문서, 동영상 및 기타 파일은 복원 및 재생할 수 없습니다.
(매각 또는 교체 시엔 스마트 폰 데이터를 모두 삭제하고 실행하시면 됩니다.)
매각 또는 교체 전 데이터를 삭제, 공장초기화 후 Complete Wipe를 다운로드 후 실행하면 가장 안전한 완전삭제가 진행됩니다. 관련된 자세한 정보는 리뉴얼 중인 새놈스의 홈페이지를 통해 빠른 시일 내에 업데이트 하도록 하겠습니다. 감사합니다 !
사용하면서 불편함 점, 개선 사항, Complete Wipe 와 관련한 모든 의견을 보내주세요.

The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone.
Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order you phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it.
Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install Bitdefender's USSD Wipe Stopper to protect against such attacks. Now, once you would tap on a exploiting link, Bitdefender will intercept the wipe command and ask you to decide what to do next. You may, if unsure, dismiss the USSD command.

Why need to fully wipe the data from these memory devices?
Usually removable memory cards or HDDs have many your personal or company business confidential information. Simply delete or format will not really wipe the data from the disk. Hackers can easily restore these data by some software in few clicks.
How Full Wipe works to make sure all data are fully wiped?
Normal delete or format will only mark these files to "deleted" status, the real data are still in the device. Full Wipe will re-write as much empty data as possible to overwrite the real data. Even Hackers restore the data the files are useless.
* Support full wipe different kinds of disks: SD card, micro SD card, even USB memory sticker(OTG to device);
* Will full overwrite all data in the disk media, make all data are UN-RECOVERYABLE;
* Will also create random directories to make sure all file names and directory names are overwritten;
* Can specify how many rounds to wipe the card, or even keeping wiping until manually stop;
* Have double confirm dialog before each operation, to avoid wrong operation;
Since Android 3.0, the Android system can mount internal storage memory as "External SD card". Please check from "System settings" -> "Storage" -> "Storage manager", to make sure which memory you are going to wipe.
