How do I delete my wallet and start over?
For safety reasons, Exodus stores the keys to your wallet in a location on your computer that is separate from the wallet program's data. This design decision allows users to upgrade easily and makes it difficult for new users to accidentally remove those important files from their computer.
If you would like to uninstall Exodus or if you would like to erase your wallet and start over you can follow these steps.
WARNING: THESE STEPS BELOW WILL REMOVE YOUR DIGITAL ASSETS FROM YOUR COMPUTER AND THEY CAN NOT BE RECOVERED WITHOUT A BACKUP. BE SURE YOU HAVE SENT ALL OF YOUR ASSETS OUT OF YOUR WALLET OR HAVE A COMPLETE BACKUP BEFORE CONTINUING.
1. Quit Exodus.
2. Remove the following folder containing your digital asset keys and wallet data on your computer. The data directory is located in different places depending on if you are on a PC, Mac or Linux.
Mac: Hard Drive > Users > YOUR-USERNAME > Library > Application Support > Exodus
To get here, open finder, and press Command + Shift + G. Copy and Paste this into the Go To Folder text field: ~/Library/Application Support/
Windows: C: > Users > YOUR-USERNAME > AppData > Roaming > Exodus
( Windows users may need to show hidden files to access this folder )
Linux: home > YOUR-USERNAME > .config > Exodus
( Linux users may need to show hidden files to access this folder. On most Linux platforms you can turn on hidden files by typing Control + h )
3. Download the latest version of Exodus from:
4. Launch Exodus and you will now have a brand new wallet. This wallet has new private keys and a new 12 word phrase, so if you begin to use this new wallet, be sure that you complete the backup process again, because you will have a new 12 word recovery phrase. If you deleted your wallet to secure it from a hack or phishing theft, you're now secure and ready to send any remaining funds back into Exodus.
