Before You Get The New iPhone 5, If you're selling in your old device, Securely delete all data with iShredder 2 Pro.

September 11, 2012
It’s never been this easy. If you want to sell your iPhone. The new iShredder 2 from Protectstar offers military-grade security and erases all selected files, for your privacy and security.

Many Apple fans like to be on the cutting-edge of technology. When Apple's soon to be released iPhone 5 hits the stores, a great number of users will immediately purchase the current all-round hardware.

But what to do with the old model? It is often given away or sold. The problem: even though the devices are small, they often contain a staggering amount of personal data. Photos, videos, appointments, addresses, e-mails with sensitive content, internet links as well as private records from app store downloads.

Before you sell your iPhone you’ll need to make sure that all your personal files on it have been blitzed beyond recovery, without a trace. It's simple to restore supposedly deleted files from the memory on your device these days.

iShredder is like an Industrial Grade paper shredder, which goes beyond international security standards. The iOS app is easy to use and includes free technical support. iShredder surpasses international standards used by state and military organizations, in secure file deletion, with a wide selection of tried-and-trusted state-of-the-art wiping algorithms.

It takes just three simple steps to overwrite the free space:

First, open Protectstar™ iShredder

Second, select a secure wipe method

Third, start the deletion process

Each algorithm has been analyzed by authorities and independent organizations to make sure it really does what it claims. Data destruction that cannot be recovered. With identity theft on the rise, have peace of mind knowing none of your private data will fall into the wrong hands.

Depending on the edition, the iShredder package comes with deletion algorithms such as DoD 5220.22-M E, US Air Force (AFSSI-5020), US Army AR380-19, DoD 5220.22-M ECE, BSI/VS-ITR TL-03423 Standard, German BSI-VS-2011, NATO Standard, Gutmann, HMG InfoSec No.5, DoD 5220.22 SSD, US Air Force, US Navy NAVSO and more.

For Business and government users, there is also a state-of-the-Art deletion report as a pdf file available as an In-App-Purchase or decide for iShredder 2 Enterprise edition which comes with all necessary features for enterprise customers.

The new iShredder 2 Pro (4.4 MB) is available in the languages English, Spanish, German, Portuguese and can be found under the category ‘Utilities’ on the AppStore.
