Please help, I changed my iphone 5s and forgot the password connected to my Cannon 6D, possible to reset, I can't find any instruction from Manual. Thanks.

If you followed the steps above, it gives you the password during the camera Wi-Fi creation process. You'll need to remember that number to use whenever you try to connect to the camera. 

if you forget the password, start over and do the steps again. 

 

I haven't used the new version of the app in a while. But this end of this Canon software is obviously still the same. 👍🏼

I've lost the password connected to my EOS  camera and can't connect to smartphone either.  Have got as far as Review/Change Settings but no option to reset password in there.  I have no idea why it has suddenly requested a password for the first time at this point.

FOUND IT!!

Select Wi-Fi function > And then on the ‘Connection’ screen, select Exit. Don’t just *exit* the screen by hitting menu. Actually select Exit on the touchscreen or highlight Exit with the directional buttons and press the *enter* button.

On ‘Exit wireless LAN function’ screen, select Ok.

Now press the ‘Info’ button to enter General settings. (Or make selection on screen.)

Now you can choose ‘Clear Wi-Fi settings’ , select Ok. Once you do that you can then create a new “camera Wi-Fi”, in which you can then be given the password during the creation process.

Whew! That was driving me nuts!

Let me know if that works for anyone else!

Thank you 🙂 It works for me 🙂

OMG THANK YOU!

I can FEEL that response, emanphoto. It's exactly how I felt when I figured it out finally. Lol! Glad you have it working again. ✌🏼😎

thanks SO much but mine asking for a password, is that the encryption number?
