Security experts have warned Android smartphone owners to update their software and be wary of clicking untrusted links - as they could reset your phone back to its factory setting without warning.
Researchers found that malicious hackers can create web-links that can wipe your phone - meaning all your files, personal details, images and music would be wiped, just by getting you to click on a web-link.
The exploit has been tested on Samsung phones, but could potentially be work on handsets from companies such as HTC.
The bug exploits a feature in many phones from Samsung where clicking on a link can automatically dial a number into your dial-pad and click 'Call'.
