How to factory reset your Oculus Go using your headset or the app

You can revert your Oculus Go to its original settings in about 30 seconds, wiping clean every bit of data and removing your account from the headset once and for all. But why would you want to factory reset your Oculus Go?

Well, for starters, if you’re selling, giving away, or trading in your Oculus Go you don’t want the new owner to have access to your data. 

On the other hand, if you’re keeping your headset, but it’s not working properly, a factory reset can restore it back to its proper function. 

If you want to use a different account with your Oculus Go, a factory reset is also a necessary first step.
