  2. There, find the Device Maintenance option.Factory Reset your device
  3. Around the lower part of the screen, select Device Security.Master Reset your device
  4. If not done before, Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
  5. Select the Scan Phone function.Wipe data on your device
  6. Wait for the scan to be completed.Format your device
  7. If your device might be having virus problems and they are detected, you will be asked to Ignore or Uninstall the app it came from.

That's it! Remember to scan your phone at least once a week and avoid opening software from unknown sources!
