A woman reveals how her privacy was violated when she describes how a Best Buy Geek Squad member violated her privacy when he copied her personal pictures, some racy, and took them home with him. Sophia Ellison did what most of us do, allowed the technician to transfer her data to the new phone. She describes her ordeal in the video below:
1. Make sure the technician does not copy your data to a computer. He or she should use a special connector to connect your old phone to the new phone to transfer the data. Memory cards can also be moved from one phone and inserted into the other. Under no circumstances should you allow the technician to copy your data to a computer and then to your phone.
2. Make sure you ask for your phone back. Never trust that the technician will dispose of your old phone in a secure manner. Take your old phone home and delete the data yourself.
3. Most smart phones can permanently erase all data on the phone. This process is not reversible. When you are sure you have backed up your data, run the permanent delete feature on your phone. On an iPhone, navigate to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents and Settings to begin the delete process.
