Can I Clean Out My Tablet?

Dear Computer Lady,

Is there a way to clean out a tablet?

Must it be thrown out?

Thanks, Cindy

Dear Cindy,

Every tablet that I have worked on has a way to reset it back to factory defaults built into the tablet.

Since it is a little different for each tablet brand, you would have to look it up for your specific tablet.

I recently posted directions for cleaning out an iPad on my website at:

Once you reset your tablet, it will no longer have your personal information on it, and you can safely sell it or give it away.
