Why Do YOU Need a Password for Your GoPro?

To connect the camera to your phone, you will need a password. Here are a couple of reasons why you should set the password:

  • If you have one or more GoPro's, then I recommend you set up "camera name" and "password" for each. Having unique names will help you to find which camera is which.
  • For security reasons, you need to update your GoPro password. If you failed to take control of your camera, then anyone can misuse it. This will allow other people to access your camera files. So it’s better to set up your password and connect your camera with your phone.

Are you going to allow others to access your Gopro camera files? Just follow the steps given below and keep your files secure.
