If you would like to clear or reset ZeroTier's address on a device (the 10-digit address node ID) or you have cloned a device and you want to prevent it from using the same address, follow these instructions:
Stop the service.
- On Windows this is done with the service manager. (Open the Start Menu and start typing "service")
On Mac you can open a terminal and use
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.zerotier.one.plist
On Linux this is usually
sudo systemctl stop zerotier-one
sudo service zerotier-one stop

Restart the service
- starting via the service manager on Windows

When started without identities ZeroTier will generate new ones.
You will need to authorize this new identity on any networks.
