Lost firmware password for my nitrokeys,

is it possible to reset the firmware password?
If not can I send them to you to get them fixed?
Also one of them is an older model from the crowdfunding and I wondered if it could be upgraded.

Hi zapper,

what Nitrokeys are you talking about exactly?

Kind regards

Okay I thought about it again.
As you are most most likely referring to the firmware password of Nitrokey Storage: It is not possible to reset the firmware password. This is due to security considerations. Changing the firmware password to something different than the standard 12345678 makes sure that no one else can change the firmware of your device without your knowledge.
