    Hi guys.
    Had a nightmare yesterday. Dropped my s4 and cracked what seems to be the LCD screen. I have no display function. All I can here is notifications.
    I want to send away to repair using insurance but I have no idea how to wipe the Samsung through a PC. That seems my only option,
    I have passwords and card numbers on there that I wish to rid for self reassurance.
    Can anyone help.
    Thanks :)

    1) If USB debugging is enabled, you can use adb. (If not, you can't.)

    2) The first thing done to a phone that comes into the insurance tech facility is a full wipe (full - all partitions - they even wipe the recovery and OS). That's to keep their employees honest, and to keep you from having any legal grounds to bring any kind of suit.

    3) If you're friendly with a local (and good) repair shop, they'll pop on a temporary screen and let you wipe the phone to your heart's content.

    Sorry to hear that your Samsung S4 screen was broken... Regarding wipe out, you can ask your local repair man for help before replacing your screen
