If you forget the password of your FritzBox router, this is not necessarily a problem. You can easily redefine it using a stored e-mail address. Otherwise you have to reset the FritzBox to factory settings.

Change FritzBox password via email

As a rule, you have to store an email address with your FritzBox. Answering machine messages, for example, can be forwarded to these. You can also use this email address to reset your password:

1st step:

Select " Send Push Service Mail " here. This is how you tell your device that an access link should be sent to the stored e-mail address. You can then use this to set a new password.

Reset FritzBox to factory settings

Another alternative is to reset the FritzBox. All settings will be deleted. You should only use this method if you no longer have access to the stored e-mail address. In this article we will show you how to reset your FritzBox.
