Creating a Wi-Fi Password For Your GoPro

by GoPro ‎09-30-2019 05:34 PM - edited ‎01-28-2021 10:04 AM

How to do it?

A camera name and password are required to pair with the GoPro App. We have a few guidelines and considerations for creating your password: 

  1. Your camera name and password must consist of at least 8 characters. 
  2. Limit the characters in the name and password to 0...9, a...z, A...Z, "@", "-", and/or “_”
  3. Do not include any non-English or special characters. 
  4. Some cameras are set up with a factory password ("goprohero"), do not reuse this factory password. 

We follow the industry-standard security protocol: WPA2-PSK (pre-shared key) mode. It's your choice to decide how complex you'd like your password to be. As is true of all password-protected devices and services, the more complex your password, the more secure your device will be. 

If you'd like to reset your camera name and/or password, please refer to our article: How to Change Your Camera's Wi-Fi Name & Password.
