Is there an easy way to change the ID of my device?
I want to change the syncthing ID of my device. Is there a quick and convenient way to do this? I already tried to uninstall Syncthing from Terminal but when I reinstalled I still got the same ID. Suggestions and advice?
You are aware that by changing your ID, you will loose all connections to other devices? I.e. all devices you were connected to will need to remove you’re old ID and accept the invitations from your new ID and all folder shares.
To change the ID, you simply have to delete the files key.pem and cert.pem in Syncthing’s config dir. Everything else can be left in place, a new key (and thus ID) will be created the next time Syncthing starts.
