Why You Should Shred Your Old Laptop

When It’s Time for an Upgrade, Shredding is the Safest Option

When you’re ready to get rid of your old laptop, whether it’s your personal or business device, it’s important to protect yourself with shredding. Although it may seem simple to delete all your old files, the truth is that even after you’ve wiped your device clean, ID thieves and hackers can still access your personal information. Shredding your laptop is the most secure way to safeguard against data theft and ID theft. Take a look:

Your Laptop Holds A Wealth of Personal Information

Today, most folks use their laptop and other mobile devices to do everything–from banking and paying bills to shopping, booking vacations and so much more. Bank accounts, credit cards, insurance information and account numbers are stored on your laptop. All of this confidential information lives on these devices and even after a factory reset, there’s still enough information to put you in danger.

Shredding Is the Most Secure & Permanent Solution

Deleting old files and information is not enough to ensure that someone can’t still gain access to your data. Shredding your laptop with a professional shredding company makes the device irreparably destroyed, impossible to put back together and retrieve any information. Experts agree that even the smallest amount of information can be accessed by a tech savvy hacker, leaving you open to ID theft and data loss.
