Known_devices.yaml - safe to delete?

My list of devices becomes bigger and bigger, some of them are not needed anymore. Is it safe to just delete the known_devices.yaml? I read somewhere people gettting duplicates in HA that way…

I spin up/down VM’s and play with various Raspberry projects all the time that pop-up in there and then just delete them once a month or so. Shouldn’t be an issue to delete, just watch the spaces & extra lines.


you could consider setup in config to not add new devices and delete only the unused/untracked devices and manually manage in future
