Can't change wifi credentials , even after re-upload

Hi guys, iam having a annoying issue with the new blynk.iot
I just uploaded the code from examples > blynk > >blynk edgent > esp8266 , to my esp8266 board , it successfully installed .
Then I try to connect my esp8266 with my hotspot in new blynk iot app . It’s connected. But it doesn’t show’s either in app nor webpage .
After sometimes I brought a new wife conection and re-upload the code , but it’s wifi credentials is not changing , it remains same
The I try some other led blink code and run it . No issues , successful running
After that again I upload and run blynk edgent , but it trying to connect my previous hotspot credentials , I don’t know why the credentials is not changing and the codes are not modified
Also I tried to change the templetes , still same

Guys plz help me with this :pleading_face:

With Edgent, the wifi credentials are stored in flash.

There is a reset procedure that I believe is in the documentation but if that doesn’t work you could probably also use this and follow the documentation to wipe out the flash.

I assume this will put the device back into “provisioning” mode after a new Edgent based sketch is loaded in as there will be no wifi credentials for it to reference back to in flash.

The simple way to clear the stored credentials is to choose the Tools > Erase Flash > All Flash Contents option in the Arduino IDE.

However, I think the Edgent examples allow you to use the button defined in settings.h to allow you to put the board into setup mode.
