    It's not secure. If you're looking for a secure erase of the internal storage, you need to encrypt your information, then perform a factory reset. When encrypting information, you need to provide a pin number. The only way to decrypt the information is with that pin number. When you factory reset, the encrypted information may still be retrievable from the internal storage after the storage has been wiped, but anyone attempting to read a file will get garbage unless they have the pin.

    As I pointed out in the previous thread where I mentioned this, unless you have stuff you seriously need to hide, there's no point in using this method.

    Thanks for the information.
    For me
    check first what brand and model of android
    then search thru google
    how to reset
    check first you memory card before resetting so your data will not save.

    @phxrickaz: I've edited your posts to eliminate your use of all caps. While I can understand your frustation, there is no need to shout. Typing in all caps is rude.

    Regarding the password, you must have reset the tablet and in doing so encountered Google's Factory Reset Protection. Depending on the version of Android on the tablet, it may be possible to bypass it, but bypassing Factory Reset Protection is beyond the scope of this thread.
