Change Wi-Fi password

Network passwords are alphanumeric. This means they’re a combination of letters and numbers. But there are some restrictions.

  • Passwords must be between 8 and 63 characters
  • No spaces. Make sure there isn’t an accidental space at the beginning or end of your network name or password.
  • No special characters

Here’s how to change your Wi-Fi password:

  1. Open the Google Wifi app.
  2. Tap the settings tab, then Network & general.
  3. Under the ‘Network’ section, tap your network name.
  4. To edit, tap your password or the pencil icon in the upper-right corner.
  5. Enter a new network password. Check the “Show password” box to see it written out.
  6. When you’re done, tap Save.

Reusing an older network name and password

If you reuse a network name and password from an old router, you won’t have to reconnect devices that were previously on the network.

If your old router is still broadcasting a Wi-Fi network, you may see odd behavior because some devices will be connected to your Wifi point and others connected to your older router. You can fix this by enabling bridge mode on your old router.
