Step 3: Further tap on the Reset Phone option which is at the bottom of the screen.

Step 4: If you have set any password for your device then you need to unlock your device to proceed further.

Step 5: Now tap on erase everything option to completely reset your device.

Once you tap on erase everything the device restarts and the data on the device is cleared and reboots as if you are booting the device for the first time.


  • Before you factory reset your device make sure that you have created the backup of the data available on your smartphone as factory resetting is an irreversible process and data cannot be retrieved back once you format it.
