In this study, Avast's experts ... unearth everything from anime porn to nude selfies to sensitive financial data.

... third-party tools that will properly wipe your phone. Avast has one ... (wipe feature) as part of its PAID version.

Yeah.
We cry wolf then pay us to remove the wolf.

"more than 750 photos of partially or entirely nude women"

<immediately begins buying used android phones on eBay from what appears to be female users>

Hahahah. Kidding. Best way to make sure you're not leaving those types of digital traces is of course to not take them in the first place.

So, its only a matter of time someone will kindly place those female nudes into an archive and post them on a torrent site for the masses.

Though honestly, for most novice users, this will be a shock. Most people don't think that there are digital footprints and when you hit delete it really doesn't mean delete in many cases. Sucks for Android users, but as Rookie said above - now snapping up cheap eBay phones! :)
