Help Clearing SMS Data


Android Question

Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster.

So I am very paranoid about this whole privacy thing when it comes to data and being able to bring back things meant to stay deleted.

So to keep the question short, is there a way to permanently erase, deleted data without wiping the entire phone clean. I know there are applications that completely get rid of EVERYTHING, but I still want to use this phone, but only want to make sure that the data I have deleted stays deleted.

P.s I have a Samsung Galaxy s5
