Many Apple fans like to be on the cutting-edge of technology. When Apple releases a new model of the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad a great number of users immediately purchase the current all-round hardware in the pocket or briefcase version.
What to do with the old model? It is often given away or sold. The problem: even though the devices are small, they often contain a whole life. Personal photos, videos, appointments, addresses, e-mails with sensitive content, internet links as well as private records in apps.
It's simple for hackers and prying minds, to restore supposedly deleted files from the memory on your Apple device these days. Before you sell or give away your Apple device, you'll need to make sure that all your personal files on the device have been mutilated beyond recovery.
Like an Industrial Grade paper shredder, this tiny program goes beyond international security standards:
The new ProtectStar iShredder 2 Pro is very easy to use. It can simply be transferred to the iPhone or iPod touch after they have been restored to the factory condition.

* First, open ProtectStar(TM) iShredder
* Second, select a secure deletion algorithm
* Third, start the deletion process
