Issue Details

I forgot my password I set on the roboRIO I use for the FIRST Robotics Competition, and am now unable to login and access it. How can I reset the device so I can log in again?


  • Verify that the password isn’t simply 'blank', the standard default password on the roboRIO.
  • In the event that you absolutely cannot find the password to the roboRIO, please contact National Instruments Support.
