File Sharing Password problem

Hi: In Storage and Sharing I have File Sharing  and Wi-Wi Sharing turned on. I never noticed that the Password Protect was turned on. I never set a password but now that I want to use it the PB is demanding a password - which I have not got.

Is there any way around this or do I have to do a Security wipe?

Thanks.

Donald

Re: File Sharing Password problem

Try a number of your common passwords to see if you can get past it. Try your BBID Password. If you didn't set the password, someone must have had access to your PlayBook and set one. Check with your friends or coworkers. If you have to do a wipe, do a backup first. I don't know of any way around this situation. If you work with jerks, you will have to set a password to keep them out.

Re: File Sharing Password problem

Hi: Thanks for the reply. No coworkers, no password. It looks as if I'm headed for a wipe.
