"Up to 500 million Andriod users who use or have used Android software could be at risk from having personal information shared after tests revealed it's impossible to clear data from many devices,

A report by Cambridge University showed that private text messages, images, videos and email details can be recovered, even after a total wipe - or factory reset - has been done."

I just got the new android 5.0 lolipop update a week or so ago, so I might be safe

Actually, you can wipe the data. There are tools for that. Android usually wipes only the /data and /cache partitions, and leaves /sdcard intact. I like this, because I usually have stuff on my internal storage that I want to keep. However, you can also wipe that partition. There are ways of 100% shredding the files too.
Anyways, I run (and a huge number of people do too) custom ROMs and recoveries, so I do have options for 100% wiping. 
It's similar to a computer, most of the times, you may be able to recover data if you yourself don't wipe it carefully.

@mario, it mustn't work then. Cambridge stuff is never wrong. If the data is still there, its still there.

Well, there is 1 issue with this, on some builds of Android 5.x Lollipop - the data is not fully wiped in this version, so that if someone steals your device, they won't be able to access it even after a factory reset, and it'll still be locked.

yeah, but where there's a will, there's a way. Someone will break that barrier and get to your data if they really want it.

However, that is true for everything.

Meh, it's not big of an issue. First of all, most people can't/don't do it. It is possible to destroy the important files though.

^^This. I never sell my tech though. I always destroy the memory components and then recycle it all.
