Factory reset

In this guide, we'll walk you through how to factory reset your Tidbyt.

Overview

There are two ways to reset your Tidbyt. If the device is currently setup and connected your the Tidbyt mobile app, you can conduct a software reset using the app. If for some reason you no longer have access to the mobile app or the device is unable to connect to the Tidbyt backend, you can conduct a hardware reset using the reset button.

Both a software reset and hardware reset remove all personal information from the device and resets the device back to its factory settings.
