Finding Your Wi-Fi Password

 

During Setup the Ring App will ask for your Wi-Fi password. If you don't know it off the top of your head there is a way to find it.

Finding Your Password

If you’ve never changed the default password on your Wi-Fi router, look on the bottom of your router. In many cases, there is a sticker that contains the password.

Make sure to enter it exactly as it appears on this sticker during the in-app setup process, since Wi-Fi passwords are case-sensitive.

If your Wi-Fi password isn't on the bottom of your router, here are some other ways to find it.
