When pairing your GoPro camera to your phone, you need to use your GoPro Wifi password. However, there are certain times you may need to change or reset your GoPro Wifi password. It could be for security reasons or in case you forget it. Although there are different GoPro models, it is generally simple to reset your code. Read on to find out how.
Techniques to reset the Wifi password
There are a few techniques in resetting the GoPro Wifi password. They are, however, very easy steps and don’t take much time.
Prepare the driver download
The first thing to do is to prepare the driver download. You can do this by either connecting your GoPro device to your computer or by inserting the microSD card of your GoPro device to your computer through an SD card adapter.
Check the compatibility of the driver before downloading
Before downloading the reset password file, ensure that it is compatible with your device. Check the model of your GoPro and ensure it correlates with the file you’re downloading.
Copy the contents of the downloaded file
The next thing you need to do is to copy the content of the downloaded file to the root folder of your GoPro’s microSD card. For the Hero 3+, paste the update file in a folder titled “UPDATE,” located in the root directory of your GoPro. While for the Hero 3 device, you need to paste only the content of your download (without the folder) into the root directory of your GoPro.
Finalize the reset
Finally, disconnect your GoPro camera, or place your micro SD card back into your GoPro and turn your device on. It will show that it is updating. Once it is done updating, restart it and connect to your GoPro Wifi network with the device of your choice using the following default password:
Network name (SSID): GoProHero
Network password: goprohero
How do I update the GoPro Wifi password?
Once you’ve done resetting your password, you may want to change it from the default password to the password of your choice. On most GoPro devices you can do it on your camera. Simply select preferences, then click connections, and finally click reset connections to change your password.
However, on the GoPro Hero 3, you can update your password online. Simply visit the GoPro Hero3 Update Webpage and click on “Update your camera manually.” Enter your GoPro serial number and email address on the next page and click “Next Step.” Select “Wifi Update Only,” on the next page and click on “Next Step.” Finally, choose and enter your camera name, and preferred Wifi password. Remember to save when you’re done changing your password, and it will be successful.
Why GoPro and not another brand of sports camera?
There are more than enough reasons why you should use a GoPro camera instead of others. The GoPro camera has unique features that make it a must-have. It is small, waterproof has professional camera qualities, and takes beautiful selfies. These features make it easy to travel around and have professional pictures very easily. Additionally, you can easily connect your GoPro camera to your smartphone through Wifi.
When compared to other brands, the features of GoPro are far better.
