How to Reset Go Pro: A Simple Guide

From the main screen, swipe down. Tap [Preferences] >, [Factory Reset] >, [Reset] .

If you own a GoPro Hero 8 Black and need to reset it for any reason, it’s easy to do so. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to perform a factory reset or reset presets.

To begin, turn on your GoPro and make sure it’s on the camera setting. From there, slide down from the top and tap on “Preferences.” Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the “Reset” option.

There are two reset options available: “Reset Presets” and “Factory Reset.” The former will reset all settings to default except for date/time, camera name and password, language, and anti-flicker. To perform a reset presets, simply tap on “Reset” next to that option.

If you want to perform a full factory reset, scroll down a little further until you reach “Factory Reset.” This option will reset all settings, clear connections, and remove the camera from your GoPro Plus account. Essentially, it will wipe everything from the camera as if it were brand new out of the box. To proceed with a factory reset, tap on “Reset” next to that option.

Once you’ve selected your desired reset option, the camera will take a moment to reboot and complete the process. And that’s it! You’ve successfully reset your GoPro Hero 8 Black.
