JioFi, the portable broadband routers by Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio, are known to provide aggressive data packages at lucrative price offers. The portable router that uses a Jio SIM allows users to access 4G hotspot which can be further used to connect with devices such as smartphones, tablets, TV and so on. The JioFi routers are also available in different sizes and battery capacities and they can be all configured through a website link or the MyJio app. Users can also subscribe to various broadband data packages as per their requirement.
Since a single JioFi portable router can connect multiple devices of different users at the same time, online security can be at risk. Therefore, if a user wishes to change the password, these steps can be followed.
How to change JioFi password (via website)
To change the password of the JioFi router, the user first needs to connect their device with JioFi hotspot.
The next step involves opening the connected device’s Web browser. Here, the user needs to add http://jiofi.local.html or http://192.168.225.1 in the URL bar.
After opening the website, the user needs to click on the Login option, given on the top right corner.
This should follow by entering credentials as username as administrator and password as administrator and tap on the login button.
Following this, click on Network > Wi-Fi Configuration > Secure key.
How to change JioFi password (via My Jio app)
