|What Should One Do Before Giving Ones Phone Up For Repairs? by cevek11: 3:10pm On Jan 23|
My phone camera got damage, so I took it to some guy for repairs (he has fixed my phone a couple of times in the past).
After his trial and error, he confirmed the camera needs to be changed. Hence, I should give him time to buy the replacement. Coming back to him after the agreed time he said he didn't buy the camera as he will need to take my phone with him... Then he said I will need to remove the phone security so he can test the phone once device is replaced.
I immediately got wary.
With all the talk of data compromise and data theft, leaving my phone unprotected was a no-no... WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, Emails (personal and official), etc... Not looking at all the other apps like banking, pictures, videos, etc
Based on this, I would like to ask what to do, before handing the phone over?

cevek11:Log out of all your applications and emails. Reset and clear tour browser history and cache. Transfer your phone data to an SD card or hard drive. Clear your phone memory.

Just involve a police man or lawyer before giving him... Incase anything happens later
