EOS Remote App for Android - I have lost my password. How do I override or reset the app password?

I have lost my password to enter the EOS Remote App to control my D6 remotely.  

 

How do I override or reset the app password?

 

I have attempted to delete the App on my phone and re-install.  That did not help.

 

Thank you,

Hello Elsmain,

You can change the encryption settings, but you would have to navigate through the steps.  You need not change anything until it comes to setting the encryption settings.  The steps to get there start here:

1.  Set the power switch to <ON>.

 

2. Press the <MENU> button to display the menu screen.


 

3. Under the [
] tab, select [Wi-Fi], then press <SET>.


 

4. Press the <Multi-controller> to select [Enable], then press <SET>.


 

[Wi-Fi function] is now selectable.

 

5. Under the [
] tab, select [Wi-Fi function], then press <SET>.


 

REFERENCE
When you first use this setting, a screen appears prompting you to register a nickname for your camera.
When the camera is connected to another device via a wireless LAN, the nickname will be displayed on the device. Be sure to set a nickname for your camera.
Select [OK], then enter a nickname. (Up to 16 characters can be entered.)
When you are finished, press the <MENU> button.


Select [OK] on the confirmation screen, then press <SET>.

The nickname is registered, and [Wi-Fi function] screen will appear.

  • Deleting text
If you make a mistake, press the <

6. Select [

Select [OK] and press <SET> to go to the next screen.


 

8. Press the <Multi-controller> to select [Easy connection], then press <SET>.
Select [OK] and press <SET> to go to the screen in step 9.


 

REFERENCE
When [Manual connection] Is Selected
Set [SSID], [Channel setting], and [Encryption settings] on each screen displayed.

When you are finished, press the <MENU> button.
