Default Memory clearing disabled

Please Login to Remove!

In learning more and more about my bb, I came across:
Options>Security options>Memory clearing> and the toggle is on Disabled. Anyone know what this does? Should it be enabled? thanks.

Probably memory cleaning, not clearing. What has been explained here on the forum in the past is that it is a security wipe. It overwrites unused memory with 1's and 0's, or something like that. It does not free up memory for applications. I don't know the official documentation.

ADDED: As far as I knew, I thought the memory cleaning option would only be revealed when content protection is enabled.

Yes, it was "cleaning", thanks for the correction...that may be why I couldn't find it on Search. Nonetheless. one post suggested keeping it enabled. Any advice on that? I haven't seen it discussed much at all.

I don't really have an opinion. I have content protection, content compression and memory cleaning enabled. The protection and cleaning I enabled for no real good reason other than wow!-that's-cool-I'll-do-it-for-the-fun-of-it-and-see-what-happens. I enabled compression because it seems like a good idea. No downside as far as I'm concerned.
