Step 2. Choose a type of data erasing

From the main window, you can see some information about your device on the left side. On the right side, there are two kinds of data erasing ways:

WIPER OVERALL: Erase all data and settings on your device permanently, returning it to a new one.
WIPE DELETED FILES: Only erase deleted data on your device like pictures, videos, call logs and messages, making them unrecoverable.

Step 3. Start to erase all data on your device now

There are three security levels to erase all data on your device:

Low: Overwrite all of your data with zeros to ensure that the files are not recoverable.
Medium: Overwrite your device with junk files to ensure that the files are not recoverable, and no one knows that you've erased your device. .
High: Erase and overwrite your device three times, and the security standard is based on the U.S. DOD 5220.22-M, more secure for confidential data destruction on your device.

You can choose any of them according to your requirement. Higher levels will ask for more time. Here, let’s choose the medium one. Then click on the Start button. To make sure that you've backed up your important data and still want to move forward, you need to type a word shown you in the input box and click Confirm. Now, the program begins erasing all data on your device as shown below.

Note: Please don’t disconnect your device during the process. Or data on your device will not be completely erased.

Step 4. Use your device as a new one

When your device is erased completely, you’ll get a totally new device. You can set it as a new device or choose to restore it from iTunes/iCloud backup. If the backup contains the data you don’t want, you’re suggested not to restore from it.
