3 Ways To Find HP Printer Password

You need your HP printer password if you are planning to print wirelessly from your laptop or smartphone via Wi-Fi Direct. With this feature, the printer creates its own Wi-Fi network and you don’t need to rely on other Wi-Fi networks. You can simply go to your device’s Wi-Fi settings, connect it to Wi-Fi Direct and start printing right away. However, it requires a password for connecting to the printer.

In this article, I have compiled all the methods to find your HP printer password.
