As professional phone repair in Toronto we will only take a backup of your data if you give us your consent!
Why you should back up your phone before giving it for repair
Phone repair professionals are aware that phones have a lot of personal data and make sure to limit the possibility of data loss however that is not always possible. The extent of damage and necessity to complete repair may require the phone be wiped. Before handing over your phone for repair make sure to take a complete backup.
- A part may need to be replaced that could delete data
- The phone may have to be reset
- Security systems in phones can become corrupted and lock you out of your data
Regular, automated backups are made extremely easy by Apple and Android. Photos, videos, emails, messages, contacts, game saves and even local files on a smartphone can be saved automatically in the cloud. That way even if the phone suffers a catastrophic break your data can be migrated to another device without fuss.
