Before selling: Erase iPhone and Wipe iPad with iShredder iOS

September 06, 2019
Protectstar today announces the new update 3.x of iShredder iOS, their iOS data eraser app. The latest update supports the next new iOS version 13 and the coming iPhone 11. By directly connecting their iPhone or iPad device to any Mac or Windows computer, anyone can securely wipe their iOS devices.

Running iShredder iOS ensures all personal data, and temporary cache data can never be recovered. The software is perfect for use before selling a used iPhone or iPad.

iShredder iOS uses data shredding techniques that go beyond international standards set by state and military organizations for secure data deletion. iShredder's data erasing algorithms have been analyzed by government authorities and independent security organizations to ensure the app does destroy all personal data.

iShredder offers all possibilities for complete protection of sensitive information, and GDPR-compliant data deletion, including detailed erasure reports.

'When a user deletes personal files such as photos from their device, they may think they are gone. The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of several forensic utilities. Those files aren't gone until that storage space is overwritten using secure deletion algorithms' says Chris Bohn, CEO of Protectstar.

The integrated secure cleaning module with its innovative search algorithm was designed specifically to clean up useless temporary junk data, caches, log files, and more. It not only brings back valuable storage space to the mobile device, but it also ensures performance tuning just like having a new mobile device.

iShredder iOS is available in two versions. The Professional edition offers 11 different data shredding methods. It uses certified deletion algorithms, including DoD 5220.22-M ECE, Peter Gutmann, DoD 5220.22-M, HMG Infosec No.5, German BSI-2011-VS, US Army AR380-19 and more.
The Military edition offers 18 erasing methods in total, while also providing an integrated file viewer. It uses those same algorithms, plus makes use of enhanced military deletion methods like NATO standard, US Navy NAVSO P-5239-26 (MFM & RLL), German BSI TL-03423, and CSEC ITSG-06.
