Detailed Guide on How to Factory Reset Galaxy S10e

If possible, backup your important files and data before doing the reset because they will be deleted during the process especially ones that are stored in your phone’s internal storage. You may move them to the SD card, computer or cloud so that you can retrieve them after the reset.


This procedure will delete all personal and third-party apps, files and data and bring the device back to its default configuration or settings. You will have to set up the device like new after it’s done. You may also notice your phone to be performing smoothly after the reset and that’s one of the many benefits of this procedure. 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.
