Other Questions

Is there a ShredIt for my other devices?

Because Shredit has been shredding data since the 1990s, it’s available on most platforms.
So, it’s also available for iOS.
In addition, it’s available on most Mac Computers and Windows Computers from Mireth Technology Corp.

Should I wipe free space if I use encryption?

Although using encryption enhances security, it may not be “good enough” as the BBC reports in this article about data retrieval, British spies ‘moved after Snowden files read’

Wipe free space only or do a Factory Reset?

The scope of the two procedures is not the same. Wiping the Free Space wipes just the free space on your Android device. Doing a Factory Reset impacts the data on the entire device. So, unlike doing a Factory Reset, wiping free space does not impact any of the apps or data that are also on your phone. In addition, whereas wiping the free space overwrites the data on your device, doing a Factory Reset just moves all the data into your free space.
