Rebel T6 wifi password reset

I just got my EOS Tebel T6 and made the wifi password. Once I tried to connect and I put the password in, it couldn't because I forgot it. Any way I can reset it?!

If deleting your connection and creating a new one does not work, you will need to reset your camera back to factory defaults.

The wifi menu has a reset option.  Once reset, it will once again take you through the wifi setup with the password.

Can't find the reset option. Just the "clear wifi settings" which only lets me create new nickname not new password.

That's what you want. It will give you the password when you start the setup process again.

I've tried it and the password option isn't coming up.

I've done this several times on my own T6S and it has worked every time.  Did you "forget" the Canon network on your phone first?  If you didn't, try that before the reset of the camera's wifi settings.

I can find the network from my phone. I'm trying to connect the camera to my phone.
When I click the network name on my phone, it asks for the password. I forgot the password.

You have to forget/delete the network on your phone.  Then start over, after clearing your camera's wifi settings.
