When you setup your router or any Internet Connected Device – what is the 1st thing you should do ?

Change the default login and password.

Many internet connected devices will have a default user name and password such as:

user name:admin

password:admin

or

user name:admin

password:password

This will mean that in many cases it will be very easy for someone to take over the device so when you are setting it up , change the user name and or the password to something unique.
