How to Delete All User Codes on a Kwikset Smart Lock
A User Code (4-digit code) on your Kwikset Smart Lock is required to lock/unlock your door through the lock’s keypad. For most Kwikset smart locks, users can create up to 30 user codes and share them with anyone you want to give access to your home.
If you’ve just moved into a new house with a Kwikset Smart Lock on its door, you want to remove all the User Codes in the lock and add your own codes—for security reasons or convenience.
That said, for whatever reasons you want to all delete codes on your Kwikset Smart Lock, read on to see how to do this.
Deleting All Codes on Your Kwikset Lock at Once
To delete all User Codes on your Kwikset SmartCode Lock at once, you need to have a Master Code enabled.
So, with a Master Code enabled on your Kwikset Lock, here is how to delete all User Codes at once:
- Make sure your door is open to avoid being locked out.
- Go to the interior assembly of your lock and remove the interior cover. Next, press the Program button (a black circle button on the inside of the interior assembly).
- Press the Lock button (the button with the padlock icon) on the keypad.
- Enter your Master Code and press the Lock button.
- Press key 9 six times and press the Lock button.
- Press key 9 six times again and press the Lock button.
- If the keypad flashes green once and you hear one beep, the programming is successful—all User Codes have been deleted.
Next, confirm if the codes have been actually deleted by pressing the Lock button while the door is open. If the latch bolt doesn’t extend to the lock position, then all User Codes have been deleted.
Deleting User Codes Individually
If a Master Code isn’t enabled on your Kwikset Lock, you can delete the codes individually. Here’s how to do this:
- Press the Program button on the inside of the interior assembly.
- Press the Lock button on the keypad.
- Enter the User Code you want to delete and press the Lock button.
- Re-enter the User Code you want to delete and press the Lock button to complete the operation.
Now test the User Code you just deleted to be sure that it’s been deleted. You can do this by trying to unlock the lock with the User Code. If it doesn’t unlock, then the code is deleted.
Repeat the steps to delete all codes.
Restore Factory Settings to Remove All Codes
If you have acquired a previously owned Kwikset Lock, you may not know all the codes in the lock to remove them individually. In that case, you can reset the lock to remove all codes.
However, keep in mind that resetting your lock will remove all your custom settings and replace them with the factory default settings. You’ll need to set up your lock again (as you did when you first installed it) after the reset.
So here’s how to rest your Kwikset Smart Lock:
- Remove the interior cover to access the battery pack.
- Remove the battery pack. Next, press and hold the Program button.
- While still holding the Program button, replace the battery pack.
- Continue holding the Program button until you hear a beep and the status LED flashes red.
- Press the Program button once. Within 30 seconds, the status LED will flash green, followed by a beep. This shows the reset is complete.
- Now all the codes in your lock have been deleted. Perform the door handing detection and add new User Codes to your lock.
So that’s how to remove all User Codes on a Kwikset Smart Lock.
Keep in mind the procedure to remove all codes on your Kwikset Smart Lock may vary slightly depending on the model of your lock. This process works for most Kwikset SmartCode Lock models, such as Kwikset 909, 910, and 913.
