How to Hard Reset Samsung Galaxy A81
Hard Resetting your Samsung Galaxy A81 is a relatively simple process. To begin, open your device’s Settings and scroll down until you see the ‘Backup and reset’ option. Tap on it and you’ll be presented with the option to ‘Factory data reset’ on the next page. Select this option, and choose ‘reset phone’ to begin the process.
Once you’ve started the reset process, your device will prompt you to enter your PIN code or pattern to confirm that you’re authorised to perform the reset. Enter the PIN or pattern and click on ‘Continue’.
You’ll then be asked whether you’d like to back up your data online or save it on a computer. The latter should be your preferred option as it will ensure that you don’t lose any important files or contacts. Select the ‘Backup on my computer’ option, if you choose this.
Once you’ve backed up your data, select ‘Restore’ and you’ll be prompted to re-enter your PIN or pattern for verification. Again, enter the PIN or pattern and press ‘Continue’.
Your device will now begin the reset process. This may take up to 15 minutes, so please be patient. When the reset is finished your device will restart and all the settings will be reset to their factory defaults.
Congratulations, you’ve now successfully hard reset your Samsung Galaxy A81!
