Resetting the OATH Application on the YubiKey

Warning: This will delete all of the OATH credentials stored on your YubiKey. If you are actively using these, you will want to be sure to disable the 2FA requirement for your accounts before performing these steps to ensure you do not lock yourself out of any accounts. If instead you wish to delete a specific account, you can delete individual credentials by selecting the specific credential and pressing the trash icon.

  3. Open Yubico Authenticator.
