A camera name and password are required to pair with the GoPro App. We have a few guidelines and considerations for creating your password:
- Your camera name and password must consist of at least 8 characters.
- Limit the characters in the name and password to 0...9, a...z, A...Z, "@", "-", and/or “_”
- Do not include any non-English or special characters.
- 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.
