When setting up a new SharpV camera, the default password should be changed to a long, random and unique password that is not shared with any other users. The password should contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and non-alphanumeric characters.

The SharpV Portal will indicate if the password is considered weak, strong or very strong. It is recommended to set a strong or very strong password as defined on the webpage.


  1. In the Sharp Portal, open the Security page from the Configuration menu.
  2. In the Access section, click Modify password.
  3. Enter your old password, then enter and confirm your new password.
  4. Click Apply.
