How do I Delete all of My Personal Information from My Samsung Galaxy Tab E? (SM-T560)

Your device lets you perform a factory reset to delete all of your personal information from the device (the microSD card is not affected). This feature ensures your data is moved before sending the device in for replacement or repair, properly disposing it, or giving it to a friend or family member.
