The dangers of sloppy safety measures might not sink in until we become victims ourselves. However, as you may know, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so it’s best to play it safe.

In order to communicate the password, you must know it. The same process works for recovering the Samsung hotspot password even if you set it a long time ago and have since forgotten it.

The Easy Way
