How do you ensure the security of any data that was left behind? Does this differ for laptops, iPads and other tablets?

We take security very seriously at EasyTradeNow. With smartphones, iPads and other tablets, it’s essentially a 1-click process to clear all data and reset the device back to its original factory settings. For Macs and computers, the process of removing data from laptops is very different, mostly because consumers tend to store more personal and sensitive information on their personal computer. Therefore, we do a more thorough data wipe, which includes use of a Use Disk Utility tool to reinstall the OS, then write zeros over all free space on the drive. If the drive is unable to be erased, it is removed and destroyed.
