Today I will be showing you different methods to factory reset Samsung M14 device in the easiest ways even my grandma can do it. Besides that, you will find out when to do a hard reset and how to make a backup of your Samsung device.

By doing a factory reset you actually wipe all your data and make the phone looks like a brand-new device, meanings will be reset to its factory settings.

What is a Samsung factory reset, hard reset or master reset

A factory reset, also known as a hard reset or master reset, is the best procedure to fix persistent software issues when your Samsung device is significantly slower than it was at the beginning, battery suddenly empties very quickly, or you notice unusual losses in performance, but also when you want to give away or sell the device.

However, depending on your device’s issues a factory or hard reset does not always have to be the solution. Sometimes a so-called soft reset is sufficient, i.e., simply restarting the Samsung smartphone. What may seem unusual or even too simple at first glance often holds true miracles to fix small problems on the smartphone.

In general, all Samsung devices can be reset to the factory settings with the help of a so-called hard reset. With Samsung smartphones, this is done either via the settings, via the recovery mode, Samsung’s Find My Mobile or Android Device Manager if the smartphone no longer reacts normally.

How to back up a Samsung M14 device before factory reset

Before doing a factory reset on your Galaxy M14, you should back up all important data. If there is a microSD card in the smartphone, remove it and back up its data as well. Because an encrypted microSD card can no longer be read after the reset.

The “private key” required for this is deleted during a Samsung hard reset.

If you already have a backup of your phone or don’t need one, you can just skip these steps. Otherwise, these are the steps to factory reset Samsung M14 without losing data.

When to factory reset a Samsung M14 device

In some cases, a soft reset does not help, so you cannot avoid resetting the Samsung Galaxy to the factory settings. We have listed the most common reasons for you here.

Bad performance: Over time, your Samsung device accumulates a lot of data in its internal memory. This can cause the smartphone to run much slower than when it started. In this case, it can help to reset the device to the factory settings and free it from unnecessary data garbage.

Viruses: Suddenly it is there and restricts functionality: a virus on your smartphone. And even worse – viruses can read private data. Here, a hard reset is the best solution to secure your data from third parties and be able to use the phone normally again.
Selling: If you want to resell the Samsung device, resetting is essential. With a hard reset, you erase all data and settings so that the next owner can get the phone like it came off the assembly line and set it up again on his own.

TIP: How to completely erase private data on Samsung

If you intend to resell your phone, you should take further data disposal steps to ensure your data cannot be recovered. With a little software knowledge, this is still possible after a Samsung M14 factory reset.

If you have reset the smartphone, you can permanently delete your cell phone data either manually or with so-called shredder apps.

Delete data manually

Set up the smartphone again after the reset – this time preferably with a fake Gmail address. Now load random sample images onto your Samsung, create imaginary contacts and install apps that you used before. This will overwrite the old data and make it very difficult to recover. Then reset the phone back to factory settings.

Erase data with shredder apps

The shredder apps are a handy alternative to manually deleting your data. Such apps specialize in automatically overwriting old storage space with random content, so your private data cannot be recovered.

To do this, first reset the phone to the factory settings and start it again. Now download a shredder app, such as Andro Shredder, and start the overwriting process. After that, you can reset the phone again and sell it worry-free.
