    Do you back up your device? If you do you can restore your latest back up and you will be close to how you were. A lot of information will be linked to your Google account; contacts, photos, music etc. which can be synced quite easily. Not sure why this happened, do you mind me asking which phone you are using?

    Maybe,you must have accidentally activated guest mode. Check the current user,if guest then switch. Because,the probability of getting factory reset automatically, is quite low to none.

    My oneplus 3 which I've had for one week, has just factory reset itself while sitting on my bedside table, Everything deleted and returned to factory settings. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't want to use the device now as I don't trust this not to happen again. Please help.

    His just happened to me.

    Using my phone just fine, put it in my pocket to go make a cup of coffee, I take it out again once said coffee is made and the screen has Chinese writing on it. I haven't got a clue what it is, so I force restart the phone. It restarts to factory settings, with a message saying my phone has been reset.
    Absolutely furious.
    It's currently redownloading apps, but I've lost so much content. I work away from home and have movies and music saved to the phone. That's just the tip of the iceberg. It's all gone.

    Oneplus 3 on the latest firmware, FYI.

    Having similar problem but seems to occur when charging phone in car on generic charger, not official Oneplus in car charger. Wouldn't expect that to cause problems however.

    I had an issue where the phone would re-boot ALOT whilst on charge in the car. A fix for that is to change the location settings to 'device only' rather than assisted.
    Is this what you experience, or is your phone literally reverting to factory settings whilst in the car?!?!

    I got the same problem with some chiness word and then I force restarted it. Do someone find a way to fix this problem ? Do OnePlus staff already knew this problem ?

    Thread moved to the support section.

    Are you sure you didn't do anything for that to happen?

    After much investigation, I realised it was a security feature.
    After too many attempts of PIN (phone auto activated in pocket), the phone auto wipes its data. No idea how to turn this off but at least I have found the cause.

    Not sure if this is the same for everyone else in this thread.
