wifi ID and Password

can anyone tell me if the hero6 has brought back the ability for the user(owner) to Change the camera Name(ID) and Password to one of their own choosing. or are we still being dictated to by GoPro with cryptic names and passwords that we cant remember easily.

@gaza0 - The HERO6 uses an automated camera name like the HERO5 does.

 

The camera name and password are on the screen, so there's no need to memorize them. You only need to know them when pairing the camera to your app the first time.
