Hikvision DVR / NVR password recovery

Most of the users use standard passwords for their devices such as “admin” or as it is the case with Hikvision products “12345”. That made pretty easy for the hackers to access the device and lock it down.

A year ago Hikvision updated the firmware and now the users are forced to choose a password containing at least one upper case letter and one number.

The vulnerability we`ve mention above as well as the new firmware are the main reason for users to forget their passwords and lock down the device they have.

In this article we will explain how to reset the password of your Hikvision device.

  1. First of all you have to connect your device in your local area
  2. Download the SADP (Search for Active Device Protocol) software, in order to search through your subnet and display the most important information of devices, such like: name, ip address, serial number. The following link will redirect you to Hikvision Portal
  3. Follow this link to download the software
  4. Install the software on you computer (which is connected in the same local area as the device you are going to unlock
  5. Open SADP Tool to search online devices. Select the device and click Forget Password:Hikvision SADP Tool
  6. You might see one of the three pop-ups.
