Securely Erase iPhone and iPad with Data Shredder for iOS 2017December 1, 2016
Miami, Florida – ProtectStar today is proud to announce the new release of Data Shredder for iOS 2017 – formerly iShredder – their data shredding utility that easily erases and wipes data on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Anyone can simply connect their iOS device to their Mac, and quickly and efficiently delete and overwrite all data from the device.
Data Shredder for iOS 2017 uses data shredding techniques that go beyond international standards set by state and military organizations for secure data deletion. Data Shredder’s data erasing algorithms have been analyzed by government authorities and independent security organizations to ensure the app does exactly as advertised, destroy all personal data on the device beyond any hope of recovery.
“When a user deletes personal files such as photos from their device, they may think they’re gone for good. The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of a number of utilities for macOS or Windows. Those files aren’t really gone until that storage space is overwritten using secure deletion algorithms,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “However, in just three simple steps, Data Shredder for iOS can securely erase the free space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”
Data Shredder for iOS 2017 is available in two versions, the Professional Edition offers 10 different data shredding methods, completely wiping all free space and overwriting the storage area, to completely shred all of the stored data.
