Why Complete a Hard Factory Reset on a Google Pixel 5

A factory reset is usually done before selling a phone to delete all user data and set the unit back to its original state when bought.

You may also want to reset your phone if it is not functioning properly, such as powering on and off for no reason, freezing, apps not working, etc.

In some cases, a hard factory reset can be done if a password is lost or forgotten.

When a hard reset is done, all the contents of the phone are deleted, including text, pictures, phone numbers, and so on. For this reason, be sure to copy or back up any important data that needs to be kept for work, school, or personal reasons. It is a good idea when getting a new phone to set the backup to auto-save, so it is saved often or backup every night.
