Whonix ™ Factory Reset

From Whonix


Users sometimes ask how they can reset their system -- this is called factory reset. [1] Two major methods exist.

See Also[edit]


  1. In the Whonix ™ case it is not really a factory reset because at the time of writing the platform is software-only and not hardware-related. Therefore, strictly speaking no factory defaults exist. However, vendor settings reset is harder for users to understand and factory reset has a nicer ring to it.
  2. In case of Whonix-Gateway ™: Tor Entry Guards.
