If your Allview Wi8G smartphone is running very slowly, hanging, you want to bypass the screen lock, or you have a full memory and want to erase everything, or you want to sell or give it away and want to ensure that nobody can access your files and passwords, you can do a factory reset to restore it to its original state like the first day.
In the following steps we explain how to format the Allview Wi8G to erase all your information and make it totally clean as it came out of the store.
Keep in mind that a reset or return to the factory state on a tablet deletes all its content, so make a backup of your data before doing it if you don't want to lose everything.
In case you do not want to erase the data from the device, you can try to restart the Allview Wi8G..
