Don't know Google nest router password - need to recover it.

Community Member

I need to recover my google nest router or figure out a way to give it a new password. I only use it for wifi - no door bells, etc.

looks like you got an afternoon in front of the terminal waiting for you, at  least a few minutes to get the security resolved. in the meantime, I have been daydreaming about my own Google Home, and wanted to begin a conversation with the people in the community. Maybe some day we can unite and maybe even start a group somewhere. can we chat over the course of the months?

Hi @lanahorton 

You can always factory reset your Nest Wifi.
This way you can set it up like a new device.

Please check THIS link to do so.

that's a good approach. I see experience, not bad. thanks
