Password not recognized after update

[ New ]
I have a Hero3 black series which I used with the Go Pro app on the smartphone. Yesterday I did the update, which ran successfully, but after that my old password is not recognized anymore by the app. I can't find any solution to reset the password. I also tried the original password, but that doesn't work too. Can you help me?

If you are using an android device you may also have to manually delete the camera from the WiFi network first stored on your phone and also from the Wifi history (as it stores your wifi passwords there which will result in a bad password error).  To do this, click on your WiFi icon on your phone and click on the "Advanced" option and select "Manage networks".  Delete your GoPro connection from in there too.  Then follow the video instructions for resetting the WiFi password on the camera.
