I did went to the DJIGO4 app to change it but couldn't. Is it because I connected to the RC?

I have the same question. When Im in the Wifi settings, I can't seem to change the SSID for the remote. The aircraft SSID was easy to change. But I need to change the Remote SSID name since thats the one I have to connect my phone to every time. help please. When I press the SSID name in the settings nothing happens.

I might be wrong it might be the sparks WIFI that you can change and not the Remote controller check out this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=video&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi5qILFtuPUAhXBKyYKHWkVB0AQtwIIJDAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPMm2UZd5W3U&usg=AFQjCNEZdHw2HCqS0gMSOfOVBkyJ1xGt_w

From what i understand you are not able to change SSID or password from the RC. You can only change SSID and password from the direct connection to the drone.

You can change the RC SSID and password. Someone share the process by connecting spark, rc and android mobile. Not entering the camera view but at the main menu, click on the remote connect icon bottom left which you can change it there.

I changed mine already.

Happy flying !

I've been told directly by customer support  that you can only change drone ssid and not rc. If you could show how you do please do so.

How you did that?  I get to the same screen but it only show the aircraft wifi name and password that can be change.  Is it because I use iPhone not android?

Thats what i was told too.  But the RC password is same for all, so would that be really dangerous if anyone try to hack it?

I don't think you can change the RC SSID n pass... only for Spark

I just got my RC today, and FYI. You can change the default RC ssid and password.
1. Connect to the RC via default wifi
2. Launch the DJI GO APP
3. Click on the 'RC connected', just beside where we have the 'GO FLY' or 'Connect Device' button.
4. Make sure you are on the mobile device tab at the top, Click on reset aircraft wifi settings at the bottom.

Basically, the confusion here is because it still says 'reset aircraft wifi settings' instead of 'reset RC wifi settings'. So when connected to the RC, the RC is the 'aircraft'.

After that just restart the RC. Voila! New SSID and Password, not 12341234 ...

Yes you can, within this firmware and Go4 version 4.1.3. System: Only Android can change the RC password

I can confirm this works but the it will only work when Spark is also connected to the controller

Thankfully, the information in this thread is _NOT_ correct and you _CAN_ change the RC SSID and Password (even on iOS)

What you need to do (or rather what I did) was to connect via Wifi to the RC controller without the Spark switched on. Then open DJI GO4 on iOS -> Enter Device -> Settings -> Wi-Fi Settings and you can click on and change both SSID and Password from here.

It didn't work for me before, probably because Spark was connected, but this worked flawlessly.

You can, just found it, connect Spark, controller and phone, go to wifi settings in the app and the controller settings are at the bottom of the list

I can confirm connect via RC (with spark powered off) to change SSID info of the RC. Connect direct to Spark to change SSID info of the Spark.

As above enter the camera view without connection to aircraft, hit setting WIFI and amend to your hearts content.

If you are connecting direct to drone then clearly you will have aircraft connection but the procedure is the same from camera view.

That's not correct. I have an IOS Device and I just change the RC ssid and password.

I have changed my password for the RC. That is fine.
However, how do I change the WiFi password for the spark?
My concern is, can someone hijack the Spark, while it is onflight, by them getting the Factory WiFi password?
I would think I need to cahnge both passwords to be protected???

Not sure what your working with, but on my iPhone Go 4 App there are no 'tabs' to choose from when you click the RC Connected........just takes you to a flight info screen.  I've tried to reset RC wifi password with the aircraft on and off, with Go To cable connected and disconnected and a/c on and off.........all I get is Change Password - Cancel or OK and when I choose OK nothing happens, just goes back to the menu screen............

Uh, what version of this stuff are you using........the latest Go 4 app has no such option........when I Enter Device I get three choices:  Activate, Connect to Aircraft, or Enter Camera View.......there is no such option as Settings to choose!

Oh:

You need to change this in the settings connected to RC , RC connected to the Spark.
But still, I am on android. So ....!
