Maybe your having minor issues with your JBL Flip 6. Or, maybe you let a bunch of other people connect to your device and you want to kick them off and make sure they can no longer connect to your portable Bluetooth speaker. In either case, resetting your JBL Flip 6 to its default factory settings is the best place to start. Restoring your JBL Flip 6 to default settings unpairs the speaker from all connected devices, and returns it to the state it was in when you took it out of the box. This even returns your JBL Flip 6 back to normal mode if you tried to experiment with low frequency mode.
