How to Factory Reset your Galaxy S10 Plus?

A reset will delete all your files and data that are stored in your phone’s internal storage. Make sure to create a backup of ones that you don’t want to lose. It will also bring the phone back to its default settings and configuration. If the problem with your phone has something to do with its performance, then this procedure will fix it for sure. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Back up data on the internal memory. If you have signed into a Samsung account on the device, you have activated Anti-theft and will need your Samsung credentials to finish the master reset.
  2. From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.
  3. Tap Settings > Accounts and backup > Backup and restore.
  4. Tap the following sliders to desired setting:
    • Back up my data
    • Automatic restore
  5. Tap the Back key (bottom right) until you reach the main Settings menu.
  6. Tap General Management > Reset > Factory data reset.
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the screen, then tap RESET > DELETE ALL.
  8. If you have screen lock turned on, enter your credentials.
  9. If prompted to verify your Samsung account, enter the password, then tap CONFIRM.
  10. Wait for the device to reset.

You will need to set up your phone once the reset is done. You may use the same google account or a different one since this kind of reset won’t trip the Factory Reset Protection in your phone. If you’re backed up your files and apps in the cloud, you can restore them with just a few touches on the screen.
