• Data Security

    We know protecting your data is a priority. Here’s how we can help.

    • Personal products

      You should always secure, backup and remove any data stored on a device before recycling it. You are responsible for all confidential data stored on the products. Please be sure to:

      • Back up your data to cloud services or removable storage devices.
      • Remove any media, such CDs and USB drives.
      • Delete the data on the hard disk drives and any other storage devices in the products.

      If you need to recover a forgotten password, we advise reviewing manufacturer’s instructions or seeking professional assistance.

      Dell Migrate makes it easy to move data, files, and personal settings from your old PC to a new one before you recycle.
