If you have any other GoPro camera model, you won’t have a default password for your Wi-Fi. To find your current GoPro Wi-Fi password, you need to locate the Camera Info menu on your GoPro. This can usually be found by going to Preferences and then selecting Connections.

Your GoPro’s current Wi-Fi name and password will be displayed. If you want to change your GoPro’s name, you can do so through the GoPro Quik app once your pair your camera. 

How Do I Change The Wi-Fi on My GoPro?

Once your smartphone is paired to your camera through GoPro Quik, you can modify the Wi-Fi name and password through the app itself. Go to the setting menu on the app and select Network Name. You can then change the Wi-Fi on your GoPro.

FAQs

Now that you understand how to change the Wi-Fi on your GoPro, let’s discuss a few common questions I get asked.

What is the default GoPro password?

After the release of the GoPro HERO4, there haven’t been default Wi-Fi passwords for GoPro cameras. Instead, each camera comes with a randomly generated Wi-Fi name and password. If you have a GoPro model before the HERO4, the default password is “goprohero”.

How do I connect my GoPro HERO to Wi-Fi?

Your GoPro camera has its own Wi-Fi connection that is used to pair with the GoPro Quik app. To connect your GoPro to Wi-Fi, you must download GoPro Quik on your phone and pair your GoPro camera to the phone. This way, you can transfer images and videos with the app.

How to reset my GoPro HERO 3 Wi-Fi password without a computer?

Unfortunately, you can’t reset your GoPro HERO3 Wi-Fi password without a computer. This is because you need to download the update file from GoPro’s website and then transfer it to your microSD card. Then, you can reset your Wi-Fi password.
