    ok hi everyone new guy here. well a couple weeks ago i bought i vizio tablet and i had been using it for everything but last wednesday it started freezing up and deleting stuff so i decided to return it to get my money back and get something else. before i did that i did the factory restore setting were its supposed to delete everything. so yesterday i returned it but now im freaking myself out thinking someone could do a recovery on it and find all my personal info and pics on their.am i over reacting? im just scared to H*ll right now that some one could get into my personal stuff! any opinions would be great! thank you everyone

    Factory restore will wipe the device. Was there a uSD card as well? That would need a separate formatting. Last thing you can do is change your gmail password.

    i dont think their was a uSD card, i never put one in. im just worried some guy at vizio or something will do a recovery and find my info and family videos on it. im sure im just being paranoid but i need some verification that everything is ok, thats why i asked you guys

    The Vizio guys get tons of these units back. It's a needle in a haystack and since most our wiped properly no one is looking for the ones forgotten. Don't worry about it.

    I wouldn't worry, a factory reset is exactly what it sounds like, once wiped, no going back.

    You will be ok.

    I dont think you have anything to worry about, I am sure they have a lot of work to do and would careless about what you have on your tablet.
