The Amazon Fire TV Stick, which is more commonly referred to as simply the Firestick, is a smart device. As is the case with the vast majority of other smart devices, the Firestick should typically function without any problems or errors. However, if you’ve had yours for a significant amount of time, there’s a good probability that you’ll ultimately come across some kind of issue. You should perform a factory reset on the Firestick if you are attempting to fix an issue or if you simply want to clear your data so that you may sell the device. If you perform a factory reset on your Firestick, it will go back to the state it was in when you first purchased it, which means it will have no accounts and will only include the default apps and settings. The following is a walkthrough on how to reset your Firestick.
