Reset All Strongbox Settings to Factory Defaults on macOS

Sometimes Strongbox doesn't completely uninstall when deleted from the MacOS Applications folder (due to an issue with macOS). If you'd like to completely clear all Strongbox preferences/settings then:

  1. Open Preferences and select Advanced > Factory Reset (at the bottom of the window)
  2. Delete Strongbox from your Applications folder
  3. Reinstall Strongbox from the App Store

rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.markmcguill.strongbox*
rm -rf ~/Library/Group\ Containers/group.strongbox.mac*
