“Clean” Personal Data on Work Laptop

Hi all, I am moving jobs and I am returning my work laptop which I have had for 3 years. During this time I have put personal files on the laptop. Is there a tool to format the HDD so that none of the content can be recovered? Essentially, I would like to wipe the HDD clean and return it to them so they can reload Windows on their own. Any tool recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Phone number for online registration

I can’t remember the name of a very useful service: when you have to do an online registration or verification, you can put their phone number and after you can see the code that the service sends you.

Do you know of what service I speak?

Collected info Vs. Mined data points

People think Google and Facebook are providing a service by showing what info they have collected.

That’s like seeing your credit report without seeing your credit score.

The real data they should be showing is what assumptions they make from that data. For example, seeing that google collected my morning commute information is different then seeing them tell my car insurance company that I’m high risk.

Seeing a browsing history or message history is total BS.
