Wiping your KeepKey device returns it to its "out-of-the-box" condition. Your private key will be erased indefinitely.
Only wipe your device if:
1. You have access to your 12-word recovery sentence; OR
2. You have moved all funds off your KeepKey to a third-party wallet.
Once your device is wiped you have the option to:
1. Restore using any 12, 18, or 24-word recovery sentence.
2. Initialize to receive a completely new 12-word recovery sentence.
Please follow steps 1-3 below to wipe your KeepKey device:
Step 1. Open your KeepKey's settings by clicking on the gears.
Step 2. Select "Wipe Device".
Step 3. Confirm this action on your KeepKey device by pressing the button.
Note: you can also access a limited settings page directly from the PIN entry screen, where you have the option to wipe your device.
