How to Hard Reset Infinix Phone

What to Do Before Factory Reset on Infinix

Before you factory reset your Infinix phone, there are some things that you need to do to prepare your phone and protect your data. Here are some tips that you need to follow:

  • Backup your data. The reset will delete all your data and settings from your phone, so you need to back up your important and valuable data before doing it. You can backup your data to your computer, external storage device, cloud service, or Google account. 
  • Remove your Google account. A factory reset will also remove your Google account from your phone, so you need to remove it before doing it. After the reset, this will prevent you from facing the Google account verification or FRP (Factory Reset Protection) lock. Go to Settings and log out of your account.
  • Remove your SIM card and SD card. Factory reset will also erase the data on your SIM card and SD card, so you must remove them before doing so. This will prevent losing your contacts, messages, photos, videos, music, or documents stored on your SIM card or SD card.
