Managing accounts

To switch accounts from the one used during the setup process, you'll need to Factory Reset your device from the Device info card in settings. Once reset, you can link a new account by returning to the setup process via your Android phone and MyGlass app or through any computer and the MyGlass site. Before you do anything, make sure your pictures and videos have synced to your Google+ account and/or back up your files manually by computer.

Backup your pictures and videos

To ensure you don't lose any pictures or videos, backup your files from Glass to your computer or Google+ account before you factory reset your device.

Sync via Google+ Auto Backup

To sync, plug Glass in to your wall charger and ensure that it is powered on and connected to a Wifi network.

Backup via computer

To backup files on the computer, connect Glass to your computer using the USB cord included with your Glass charger. You should be able to mount Glass as a media device. Drag and drop the pictures and videos to your hard drive. Now head to Setup on the MyGlass Android app or website.

All other settings and cards in your timeline are synced to the Glass server, and are available anytime you sign in to your account.

Resetting your device

  1. Tap the touchpad to activate Glass.
  2. From the Home screen, swipe backward on the touchpad until you see the Settings bundle.
  3. Tap into the Setting bundle and swipe forward until you see the Device Info card.
  4. Tap again and swipe forwards through card actions until you see Factory Reset.

Google Apps accounts

To use your Google Apps account on Glass, you'll need to activate the Google+ and Glass through the Google Apps control panel. You'll need an admin account in order to enable these services. Otherwise, please ask your Google Apps admin for help.
