How do I change the wi-fi password on my BT Hub

Your BT Hub's wi-fi is protected by a password that stops anyone getting unauthorised access. You'll find the password on your Hub's settings card. Find out where to look for your wi-fi settings >

We don't recommend changing the password because the one we give you is already very secure. However if you'd still like to change it, click on the dropdown for your model of Hub.

You can change the wi-fi password via the My BT app.
