This process is different since they are connected to Amazon services and recall several preferences. It also depends on the model and if you intend to keep it or not. See the breakdown below:

  • If you wish to remove your Echo, get yourself signed in to your Amazon account at amazon.com/mycd and tap “Devices,” then “Actions,” then “Deregister.” This gets rid of it from your account and erases locally stored content, therefore it must be done only when you are set.
  • If you just want to start afresh, you should reset your device instead.
  • On 2nd-generation Echo devices, press and hold both the Microphone off and Volume down buttons until the light ring becomes orange (it will take about twenty seconds).
  • On 3rd-generation Echo devices, press and hold the Action button for twenty-five seconds until the light ring turns orange for a brief period.
  • On Echo Show and other devices with a display, you can press and hold the “Mute” and “Volume down” buttons until the Amazon logo is visible (on 1st-generation devices) or head to visit “Settings”, “Device Options”, and select “Reset to Factory Defaults.”

That is that.
