Need help formatting to my macbook w/ M1 chip

Should be an easy noob question to answer. I have no idea how to format my Extreme Portable to my Macbook. Not sure if it’s cuz I have the M1 chip. I don’t remember HDDs being this hard to format. Even when I try setting up Secure Access it downloads but it wont start the installation. Please help!!!

NOTE: Formatting erases all the data saved in the drive.

Please refer to below link to download and know instructions of Secure Access software:
