How do I change / reset my BlackVue dash cam's Wi-Fi SSID/password?Updated 6 months ago

The password is printed on the label , which can be checked by removing the dash cam from its mount. 

Reset the dash cam's Wi-Fi SSID / password to default using Wi-Fi button on the dash cam (DR900S, DR750S and DR590W only):
