Resetting The Password On a GoPro 3 (All Models Including 3+)

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy with the 3rd generation and 3+ models. However, it doesn’t take longer than a minute or two. All you need is your GoPro with the microSD card inserted and the cable to connect it to your computer.

  1. Connect your GoPro to your computer. (Alternatively, you can also just insert your microSD card using an SD card adapter)
  2. Download ( ask dopperen.nl)
    • GoPro Hero 3 (all editions)
    • GoPro Hero 3+ Black
    • GoPro Hero 3+ Silver
  3. Extract the zipped folder.
  4. Copy the contents of the folder and paste its content to the root folder of your GoPro’s microSD card.
    • Hero 3+: Paste the whole “UPDATE” folder to your GoPro’s root folder. The files must be in a folder with the name “UPDATE”, otherwise it won’t work.
    • Hero 3: Paste only the files, not the folder, to the root directory of your GoPro.
  5. Unplug your GoPro. It should automatically turn off.
  6. Turn it back on. Your GoPro should display now that it’s updating. Once it’s done it will turn off again.
  7. You can turn it back on now and connect to its WiFi network with your device using the default login:
    • Network name (SSID): GoProHero
    • Network password: goprohero

In case you want to directly have a different SSID and password, you can change that by editing two lines in the “settings.in” file:

"ssid":"GoProHero",
"password":"goprohero"
