I had a Lenovo Tab 2 A7-20F, purchased in August of 2016, one of if not the cheapest model for around £50.
It began to fail here and there and I decided to get rid of it.
I started by smashing it in order to make any data unusable, but it was making a mess so I wrapped it up in a thick layer of freezer bags so as not to cut myself - and decided to think later about what to do.
I have recently thrown it out by accident and bins have since been emptied. Not in recycling or anything, just a regular dust bin.
I'm now a little concerned about my Wi-Fi password which was saved on it but is quite some hassle to change.
The tablet was totally unusable, screen smashed up, and I think the tablet had started to split right through. Does changing my Wi-Fi password sound unhealthily cautious ?
Now, assuming that all data inside is retrievable, and given that I only ever logged into anything in incognito mode, should I worry about other passwords ?
Finally, I have logged out of my Google account on that device thanks to that feature of Google's online services, but might the password still be in my tablet ?
