1. How to Set/Reset the GPS Watch Password
When buying a new electronic device, such as a phone or computer, it is important to find ways to better secure your information. In order to better protect your various device, you can set up graphic passwords, PIN codes, or a number of other available methods for protection. The Find My Kids GPS Watch features its own built-in protection mechanism, which helps to eliminate the possibility for an unfamiliar individual to connect to your child’s watch. In order to set a password, you will need to send the SMS command:
