Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!
I understand when connecting to the printer from the Iphone it requires a password. I will be happy to help you.
When you connect to the printer using wireless direct it automatically is given a password. If you print a information page it will provide the password.
To print the information page, press and hold the Wireless Direct button for more than 3 seconds.
You can access the embedded web server for the printer by typing the IP address off the information page in the address bar of Internet Explorer's browser. You should have a option there to turn off the password for wireless direct. It should be listed under the networking tab, then on the left side of the screen.
I believe that this will provide a resolution to your issue. Thank you.
