Default passwords usually come as part of a product’s factory settings. The default password helps the user to set up their device initially. This password, as well as an admin user, is usually universal across all devices of the same brand and model.
The default admin username and password for Sopho devices is a blank or space. When setting up your Sophos, you will also need to use the default IP address, which is 169.254.61.150.
Passwords are a very easy and common way that spies use to gain access to your devices, networks, and information. The default information is dangerous because it can be easy to guess, or can be found online. Therefore, by not changing the default login details on your device, you are putting yourself at risk.
Passwarden has the solution for you!
Passwords serve as the first line of defense against spies and other cybercriminals. More often than not, this is how accounts and information get compromised online. The vast amount of users and information on the internet creates a lot of potential for cybercrime. Weak passwords make you vulnerable to such crimes.
To protect yourself, it is important to build strong and secure passwords. Strong ones follow a list of criteria: 8 or more characters in length, contain upper- and lower-case letters, contain numbers and symbols, do not contain personal information or common words, and are not used for multiple accounts across various platforms.
When cybercriminals attempt to crack these, they use software that tries to enter your account by using a short string of numbers, symbols, and letters. Many of these software also use dictionary words in an attempt to guess your password. The longer and more complex your passwords are, the more time is required to crack them. Avoiding common words and personal information also reduces the risk of these being guessed.
Another way in which spies gain access to passwords is via data breaches. This is when the usernames and passwords of users from a particular website or platform are leaked to the public. When this occurs, passwords do not need to be cracked, and they are readily available.
The best way to protect your passwords is to make use of password managers. There are browser-based managers, which are easy to use but have very limited features. Alternatively, one could use password manager applications, such as Passwarden. This application is designed to safeguard your online passwords and are by far the best solution to password security.
