I have an old Paperwhite and I freak out every time I almost lose it. Kindles are very personal. Under my device options on Manage My Kindle I can only deregister it, which prevents people from buying books from it but, as I understand it, leaves all content on the device. Does a Kindle e-reader model currently exist that allows for Remote Factory Reset?

Thank you

Currently is it not possible to remotely factory reset any Kindle device.

The best you can do is de-register the device that has been lost, as you've mentioned.

This Link outlines what you should do if you lose your device or if it is stolen, but again, it only suggests de-registering the device
