iShredder™ is the most popular data eraser for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Windows Server. Since 2010, this secure deletion software has won numerous awards and is used by more than 5,000,000 users in over 100 countries worldwide.
iShredder™ uses data shredding techniques that go beyond international standards. Moreover, its data deletion is so secure that government agencies and defense ministries trust and use this robust process.
It is easy to restore supposedly deleted files from memory on your Apple™ device – files containing notes, passwords, address book, photos, videos, calendars, and more.
Before you sell or give away your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you'll need to make sure that all your personal files on the device have been blitzed beyond recovery.
You might think you've deleted those photos on your devices. Still, anyone can restore those manually deleted files from the free space on your device until the free space itself has been overwritten using secure deletion algorithms.
It takes just three simple steps to prepare your iOS device for selling or securely overwrite the free space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.
1. Connect your device
2. Choose the method
3. Begin to shred
When you delete a file, the operating system removes the reference to that data but doesn't eliminate the actual information on your memory. Instead, it is just plainly marked as free so that another file can come and use those blocks.
With the free space erase option in iShredder™ iOS®, you can securely wipe the unused disk space so that deleted data cannot be recovered.
Data erasure is overwriting the data in every sector. This will make recovering the data impossible.
After erasing your data, iShredder™ will generate a report which you could use for the audit trail, the proof of erasure. In addition, it provides auditable and verifiable assurance that all data was sanitized in compliance with published standards such as GDPR, UK Government InfoSec No. 5, US DoD, NIST 800-88.
iShredder™ iOS surpasses international standards used by state and military organizations in secure deletion. In addition, each algorithm has been analyzed by authorities and independent organizations to make sure it does what it says on the tin – data destruction beyond redemption.

With the latest European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), new requirements for the secure deletion of data have arrived, which applies to all companies.
If sensitive information falls into the wrong hands, this can result in a serious loss of revenue, penalties, or damage to reputation. In addition to the GDPR Art.17 "Right to erasure ('right to be forgotten)", please see article: https://gdpr-info.eu/art-17-gdpr/ - data protection laws prescribe a thoroughly documented data destruction. Personal data is no longer required, for which there is no legal basis for long-term storage, and must be permanently and securely removed from the IT systems.
iShredder™ offers all possibilities for complete protection of sensitive information and GDPR-compliant data deletion, including detailed erasure reports.
