Hi,

Connect to the WiFi Direct network using the default 12345678 password first.

 

Using your browser open http://192.168.223.1 and the printer's EWS page is shown.

Open the Wireless / Network tab and there select HP WiFi Direct.

Click on Edit and change its mode to Manual, then set any password as you would like, then confirm the change.

 

On your connected device, be sure to forget the saved network and then reconnect using the updated password, if you can't find were to forget a saved wireless network, please let me know which operating system you use on your connected mobile device or computer.
