If it's was running the lastst firmware.


On firmware versions 1.1.0 and later, you may reset a lost password by holding the Reset button for 7 seconds or longer. Upon success, the LED will flash a rainbow colour sequence and reboot. After the device reboots, you will be able to login with the password hak5pineapple. You are strongly advised to change this after logging in.

Thank you very much. I am in now.

why isn’t this in the instructions ….


The Password Reset was only added recently. And I don't know how old the instruction manual is.

I'm also new and I ask for patience!... after a long time I connected the mark VII and I don't remember the password. The reset instruction does not work for me, the led light only remains blue...
I don't remember what firmware I was running
