Recovering the admin password of your Velop system

In the event that you are unable to log in using the router’s admin password, you can recover the router’s admin password by using the recovery method.  This process will only recover your local admin password.
 
During setup, a secured system generated admin password was created to secure your node.  Please note this password will not be visible.  You must change this password by logging into your Linksys app through the Linksys cloud account you created or used during setup.  However, in the event that the cloud is down or you can’t log in using your admin password, you can use the recovery method.  To recover your Linksys cloud account, click
here.
 
The following steps will provide instructions on how to recover the admin password.  If you can log in using your Linksys cloud account, you can simply change the admin password in the Linksys app.  Click
here for instructions.
 
Step 1:
