The Xiaomi electric scooters, by default, come without a password. That, as our colleagues from Xataka tell us, has a “small inconvenience”, and that is that anyone can control and lock the device remotely using an application that can be found on Google Play. It’s as simple as opening the app, activating Bluetooth and linking it with any scooter.
If you have never connected the scooter to the My Home application, in short, you are not sure. That’s why we’re going to show you how to put a password from your smartphone, regardless of whether it’s an Android device or an iPhone. You only need the application and know the access. The first thing you should do is download the Mi Home application. You can find it on Google Play and App Store completely free of charge. Once you have it installed, log in with your Xiaomi account (or create it if you do not have one) and follow the steps below:
Choose your region, in our case Europe.
Press the “+” button in the upper right area.
Select the second option starting at the bottom and clicking on the image of the scooter.
The application will analyze the nearby devices and yours will appear. Click on it to connect.
On the next screen, where the device information is displayed, press the three dots in the upper right area.
Select “Change the vehicle password”.
Enter a six-digit password that is easy to remember but secure, that is, not 123456.
Save the changes
The scooter will be disconnected and when you go to press on its direct access in the main screen it will ask for the password. That way you and only you will be the only one who can block the engine, change the settings and check the information of the scooter. If, for whatever reason, the scooter were second hand and you had a password that you can not remember, you can reset it by pressing the accelerator, the power button and the brake lever at the same time for a few seconds.Note that it is not necessary to enter the password every time you want to turn on the scooter, but it is an additional security measure so that nobody can control it without your permission.
