I don’t know why questions often seem to come in bunches, however, over the last week or two, I’ve been asked how to wipe a BlackBerry and restore it back to factory defaults at least half a dozen times.  The process is pretty straight forward, but not something that many BlackBerry users do, so we’ve put together a little tutorial to walk you through it.

How To Security Wipe Your BlackBerry

  1. Go to your devices Options screen

  2. Select Security Options

  3. Select Security Wipe

  4. Check each of the options that you would like to be wiped from your device

  5. Enter “blackberry” to confirm device wipe

  6. Click the “Wipe” button

Be Careful!!! This process does exactly what it says it does.  Absolutely make sure that you want to do this before you actually do it.  Even if you are sure I recommend getting a good backup of your device before running through this process.
