Are you desperately trying to connect to your GoPro’s WiFi network to check your images or stream the live stream from your camera? I think almost everyone who has a GoPro has experienced the inconvenience of forgetting their WiFi password to connect to the GoPro application.
Normally, it is a quick reset and you are ready to go. But this time, there was a lot of teeth grinding because the update and reset process did not work smoothly. Look for the locking tab of a microSD to SD card adapter – see below!
Given the pain and suffering we thought we would find a quick way to update your WiFi GoPro Hero camera password without going through the entire firmware update process.
Reset the WiFi password of a GoPro
GoPro HERO5 Black
Resetting your password to Black Edition is quite simple. Simply follow the steps below.
- In the main menu of your GoPro, drag down and press’Login’.
- Tap on’Reset connections’.
- Your GoPro will now set a new password.
GoPro HERO5 Session
- Make sure your camera is turned off.
- Press the Menu key to access the status screen.
- Go to’Connection Settings’ by pressing the Menu button several times.
- Go to’Connection settings’ by pressing the shutter button.
- Press the Menu button repeatedly until “Reset Connections” is displayed.
- Select “Reset connections” by pressing the shutter button.
- Press the Menu button to select “Yes” and press the shutter button to select it.
- A confirmation that the WiFi has been successfully reset is displayed. Use the default setting.
Note that this operation will reset your camera to the factory settings.
HERO7 Black, silver and white
This applies to all three HERO7 models: black, silver and white. With these cameras, you can not only create your own WLAN password or assign a user-defined network name to the camera. Both are generated automatically.
To reset the HERO7 WLAN password, use the Back Screen menu to access it:
Settings > Connections > Connections > Connections > Connections > Reset connections
They will then be asked to confirm and reset and a quick progressive restart will be performed.
- Press the Mode (Page) button to turn on the camera.
- Press the Mode button repeatedly until the setting icon (key) appears; press the shutter button (front) to enter the settings.
- Press the shutter button three times to recall the connection settings.
- Press the Mode button repeatedly until “RESET” is highlighted, then press the shutter button to select.
- Press the Mode button to highlight “RESET”, then press the shutter button to confirm and reset the camera connections.
Set the name and password of the GoPro camera.
You should see two files on your SD card: “settings.in” and “update.11.txt” in the UPDATE folder (HERO3+) or the root folder (Hero3). If not, it seems you’ve made a mistake somewhere, so check the steps in the section above.
- Open settings.in in a text editor. In Windows, simply right-click and select “Open with”, then select Notepad or similar.
- Modify the ssid field of “GoProHero3” so that your camera is called as you wish.
Change the password field from “Password” to a new password.
“ssid”: “MyGoProCamera”, “Password”: “newpassword”}.
- Tap Save. Do not press Enter or enter any unnecessary characters other than the above changes.
- Insert the SD card back into the camera and the update will continue with your new settings.
The GoPro application is now officially amazing. The Quikstories function magically synchronizes your GoPro sequences and automatically transforms them into a fantastic video ready to share your social media story. To embark on this phenomenon, you must find your default GoPro WiFi password and pair your GoPro with your mobile phone.
