Intel Bios is the program that controls the computer from the moment it powers on until the operating system takes over. The main purpose of Intel Bios is to identify and initialize the flash memory, hard drives, processors, and other devices related to communications and computing.
When trying to access the Intel Bios Setup Utility, the computer will prompt for a default password. This default password is openly available to gain access to and change your Intel Bios settings. This default password is “Admin password” or “Supervisor password”. It is important that users change this default password so they can prevent others from changing Intel Bios settings without their permission.
Default passwords are standard pre-configured passcodes that come with your devices. Generally, default passwords are not safe to use because they are generic and can be guessed with ease. This defeats their main purpose, which is to restrict other people from getting access to your device. It is therefore very important to protect your devices by using strong passcodes and to tighten your passcode security by storing these passcodes in a safe place.
Examples of default passwords are the following:
A strong passcode is often referred to as uncrackable, untraceable and highly secure. This is because it creates an air-tight barrier between your devices or data and unauthorized third-party access. A strong passcode has the following characteristics:
Creating a strong and unique passcode for each of your accounts can be a very tedious process that requires a lot of creativity. Furthermore, creating a highly complicated passcode even if it is secure can increase the possibility of forgetting it and having to reset it each time. To solve these two problems, you need to get a good password manager that will do all the hard work for you.
