  • How do I change default Project EV unit hotspot password? The default password is easily visible on internet and therefore gives away access to the Wi-Fi personal settings if someone connects to it.

  • Hi Mounish, 

    In the charger settings there is a setting called "Authorization key" changing this will change the default password to log in, please note this must be done via the hotspot of the charger, trying to change this through settings will show this section as ******** and cannot be edited, this is to avoid any accidently changes, 

    Many Thanks
