I have a Pixel 2 with a broken digitizer. I'd like to wipe it of personal data before tossing it.


  • not rooted
  • adb has not been previously authorized.

Is a factory reset possible, or should I pull out the cordless drill and go to town?

As the Pixel 2 supports OTG, you should be able to attach a usb mouse to it to navigate through the menu. You will need an OTG cable for this, which is available for a small price in your favorite shop if you don't have one yet.
