Clearing Password?
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:51:43 AM »
Hi,

I have an Ambient Weather WS-1001-WiFi OBSERVER unit.  I keep losing connectivity between my station and Weather Underground (like so many here....I'm on another thread about that topic (Arghhh!).   I'm trying to clear the password field to re-enter it, but every time I try it seems to revert to the saved PW.  I have tested this by attempting to enter shorter or longer PW strings, but it seems to revert to the same number of ********.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

It is common practice to mask the password length by placing some number of * in the password field. This is to make it more difficult to guess the password.
The best is to change your password and save it. Then test it with the new password.

Ah, yes, yes, that makes sense.  Thanks I'll try it!
