How do you unpair a bluetooth device from the command line?

I was able to pair my computer with an Android phone via bluetoothctl, but there doesn't seem to be any "unpair" option. Even though I removed the pairing on the phone, running paired-devices still lists it. I've tried running disconnect and remove but they say my device doesn't exist.


first of all start your Bluetooth from System settings.

Open terminal and type:


then you will see the list of devices you have paired with and their corresponding MAC address. To un-pair a device type:

remove aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff

replace aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff with the MAC address of the device to un-pair.

there is no un-pair commmand
