Congratulations, you just bought a new phone or maybe a new laptop. That’s exciting! Now, the question is what are you going to do with the old ones?
There are several options, of course. You could: dump it (which is a danger to the environment); donate (cheers for paying it forward); sell it (takes legwork); or recycle it in exchange for gift cards (environmentally responsible, and friendly to your wallet).
Whatever you decide, there is one crucially important step that you should take before you say goodbye to your old electronics. Clear your device properly! This means getting rid of all personal data, to protect yourself and your peace of mind.
According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, 52 % of the data breaches in 2020 occurred because of “device theft and improper disposal.”
