Local wipe

A local wipe is a security measure that can be used to remove all data from a device, making it unusable. This can be useful if a device is lost or stolen, or if you simply want to destroy all data on a device before selling or disposing of it.

To perform a local wipe, you will need to use a special security tool that is designed for this purpose. This tool will typically allow you to select which type of data you want to wipe, and then it will erase all of the data on the device.

Local wipes are generally considered to be more secure than simply deleting data, as they make it much more difficult (if not impossible) to recover the data.

What does it mean to wipe a device? When you "wipe" a device, you are essentially resetting it to its factory settings. This means that all of the data and apps that were on the device will be erased, and the device will be restored to its original state. Wiping a device is usually done when you are selling or giving it away, or if it has been lost or stolen.
