Need to secure erase NVME m.2 drive I am returning

I'll need to return my 1tb m.2 drive and I want to make sure I know how to completely erase it prior to returning it. It is the only drive on my build. I see a secure erase+ option in my MSI motherboard bios, but wanted to make sure that will work. Thanks

    Secure Erase+ should work for you, however, I'm not very familiar with it personally. Another option for you is actually built into windows as well. It will wipe your system drive completely, so use caution to ensure nothing important is saved on the drive. Type "Reset this PC" in the start menu search bar, then select "Get Started", followed by “Remove everything,” and then select “Remove files and clean the drive”.
